Durham University - School of Government and International Affairs
|Salary:||£49,230 to £55,389 per annum|
|Placed on:||29th September 2016|
|Closes:||20th November 2016|
This is a full-time, non-fixed term position, which is available from 1 January 2017.
The School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) invites applications for a Senior Lecturer in Post-war Reconstruction and State building. We are seeking to appoint an individual with a combination of outstanding research, teaching, field and team-working skills.
As the School embarks on a period of substantial growth and development, we envisage that this appointment will make a significant contribution to the delivery of the School’s research and teaching strategies. The post represents our continuing commitment to world-class research and teaching in International Politics, Security and Conflict, specifically but not exclusively through the activities of the Durham Global Security Institute (DGSi - housed within the School).
Candidates must be able to demonstrate a track-record of successful field-led research based upon an impressive publication record, including outputs in leading journals, and making significant contributions more broadly through monographs and/or journal articles that have become recognised texts or interventions. They will be able to make a significant contribution to the development of the DGSi research environment, demonstrating engagement with key issues of public debate and with important practitioners and stakeholders in the field of security, post-war reconstruction and state-building, where possible delivering demonstrable impact. They will have a successful track-record of winning grant awards to support their research and will show strong knowledge and understanding of the requirements of a range of grant awarding bodies, including the UK research councils. The post-holder will also be expected to develop a portfolio of research student supervisions within the format of the team-supervision model.
Interviews are anticipated to take place in early 2017.
