Full Time

This role is full time and fixed term for 12 months.

The School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate to a full time, fixed term (12 month) Teaching Fellowship in International Political Economy.

All applicants need to demonstrate a research background or teaching experience in the development and operation of the contemporary global political economy, including its major regulatory structures and institutions. Candidates with a research background or teaching experience in the IPE of East Asia will be at a significant advantage.

The successful candidate will contribute to the School’s teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, teaching on established modules that may include research methods, comparative politics, the politics of specific states, and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations.

The post of Teaching Fellow will involve a significant teaching load, including during the summer period. There will be time allocated to related scholarship activities and the opportunity for administrative duties which relate to education and pedagogy where, at present, SGIA is focusing on initiatives related to growth in student numbers and widening participation in SGIA’s programmes. This post is to cover the teaching responsibilities of colleagues who will be focusing on other priorities for a period of time. This post is therefore for a fixed term of 12 months and it is not anticipated that the post will be extended beyond this fixed term.

Successful applicants will be in post by 1 September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The University provides a working and teaching environment which is inclusive and welcoming and where everyone is treated fairly with dignity and respect. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate these key principles as part of the assessment process.
