An internationally recruited faculty, interdisciplinary in outlook, research, and teaching, offers analytically challenging and practice-oriented courses on governance, policy analysis, management, and leadership. As a professional school, we seek teaching staff with a strong commitment to high-quality teaching. Our goal is to help students grow intellectually in a professional, research-intensive environment, characterized by public debate and engagement.

The Hertie School is recruiting a lecturer in international relations with a focus on international organisations. We are looking for a scholar who can conduct state-of-the-art research and teaching with high policy-relevance. The position is full-time, for two years, and may be extended. The expected start date is 1 September 2017. The Hertie School plans to advertise a professorship in international relations in 2019/20, a position for which the successful candidate will be invited to apply.

Applicants should hold or expect to receive a doctoral degree before the position begins. The successful candidate will teach four courses per academic year (i.e. four hours per week per semester) in the School’s Master, Executive, and PhD programmes, at least two of which will include the Master of International Affairs (MIA) core course "International Organisations" each fall, beginning in 2017.

The Hertie School seeks teaching staff with a commitment to intensive, high-quality teaching and innovative research of potential interest to the international scholarly community and policy-makers. Candidates are expected to show full commitment to working in an interdisciplinary, international environment with English as the language of instruction and operation. The Hertie School particularly encourages applications from female scholars and from candidates with international backgrounds.

We offer an internationally competitive salary in line with the candidate’s qualifications, excellent working conditions, a vibrant research environment, and a lively community of policy debate in the political heart of Germany. Depending on the candidate’s expertise, there will be a possibility to join the Center for International Security Policy (CISP).

The deadline for the submission of applications is 9 July 2017. The Hertie School will review applications that include a letter of motivation, a current curriculum vitae (publication list, degrees earned, if applicable: positions held, teaching experience, research projects, awards received), two writing samples and, if applicable, teaching evaluations. Candidates should also include two letters of recommendation from professors familiar with their work or have those letters forwarded to the committee.
