Lecturer in Politics (Postcolonial International Relations)
The Politics subject group is based within the Department of Psychology, Sociology and Politics and contains 8 staff members with a range of interests and expertise across Politics and International Relations. The Politics degree at Sheffield Hallam University is based on a contemporary view of the subject and its linkages with the wider social sciences and with society at large. We pride ourselves on taking an applied approach to the discipline of Politics, enabling our students to make theoretical and practical links between their classroom experiences and learning and the wider world of politics.
As a Lecturer in Politics (Postcolonial International Relations) you will contribute to excellent research and teaching within the Department, in particular to our new MA International Relations and Global Crises. The MA offers advanced level study of contemporary international relations with a particular focus on decolonising the discipline of IR, including how this decolonisation may help us understand and respond to various global crises. You will also be expected to contribute to our undergraduate modules in international relations.
As such, you must have well developed and current knowledge and understanding of critical, practical and theoretical issues relevant to politics/international relations and evidence of a contribution to knowledge in the field of postcolonial international relations (i.e. publications in peer reviewed journals).
We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups.
For non-EU applicants, we won't be able to provide a certificate of sponsorship / visa for this job.
