The Blavatnik School of Government (BSG) at the University of Oxford is a global, practice-focused and multi-disciplinary school that aims to inspire and support better public policy and government around the world. We are now inviting applications from high calibre candidates for a new Associate Professorship in Public Policy.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in public policy or closely related subject. She or he will be passionate about improving government and an outstanding scholar and teacher whose expertise lies within the broad field of public policy. She or he will have a track record of world-class, applied research on public policy and the ability to teach a diverse and global student cohort from an international perspective.

The Associate Professor in Public Policy will undertake research, teaching and academic service in BSG. Teaching duties will be focused on the Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree. They will also include supervision of doctoral students in the School and contributing to BSG’s short courses for high-ranking public policy officials.

The successful candidate will join the academic faculty of the BSG and also hold a non-teaching fellowship at Kellogg College. She or he will have a £5,000 annual research allowance, be eligible for sabbatical leave at full pay and may undertake up to 30 days consultancy a year without loss of salary. She or he will also be entitled to free lunch in the College.

The successful candidate will be appointed to an associate professorship. As the University does not use the assistant professor title, the associate professor grade encompasses both early career and more senior academic appointments.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 24 October 2016.
