Loughborough University London is seeking to appoint a Lecturer to join its Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance.

Loughborough London is a thriving and friendly postgraduate School situated on London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and we want to appoint a colleague to work collaboratively within the Institute and across the whole School.

The Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance has been under the direction of Professor Helen Drake since October 2017, and has embarked on a process of strategic development. We currently offer three taught Masters programmes (specialising in Diplomacy with Business and Trade; with Statecraft and Foreign Policy; and with Security and Peace-building), and we wish to expand the content of these degrees with immediate effect. For the medium and long term, we are exploring additional programmes for delivery in traditional, and potentially other formats (such as short-course education). We plan to develop our PhD provision across the subject area of Diplomacy and International Governance, and to establish ourselves as a London-based hub for knowledge and expertise relevant to the UK's withdrawal from the EU, broadly-defined.

We invite applications from candidates who specialise in any aspect of Diplomacy and International Governance and would particularly welcome expertise in international (including EU) law; international trade; commercial, and cultural diplomacy. Overall, we want to hear from entrepreneurial and versatile candidates who are well-networked in and outside academia and who are seeking a London-based opportunity to thrive in their career.

The successful applicant will demonstrate a track record and forward trajectory of research activity as measured by high-quality publications, relevant grant applications and public engagement, broadly-defined. They will be required to contribute to teaching across the Institute curriculum and to engage with School-wide initiatives for teaching delivery and development. They will be expected to develop their research activities in line with University strategy and School policy, and to draw on the opportunities of the London campus to contribute to the Institute's enterprise and public engagement activities. They should expect to take a role in the development of the Institute's PhD provision, and should also be willing to carry out administrative tasks as required.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to the Director of the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance, Professor Helen Drake (h.p.drake@lboro.ac.uk; +44 (0) 7458 126815; +44 (0) 20 3805 1376).
