Applications are invited for the post of Reader/ Chair in International Relations in the School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy

The School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy at Royal Holloway seeks to appoint two senior academics in the field of international relations. Appointments may be at the level of Reader (associate professor) or as full Professor. The successful applicants would be expected to start in September 2019.

The School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy is a research-intensive unit that offers teaching which both challenges and enriches students. We provide a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes. We carry out research across the different disciplines, but we place special emphasis on our research centres: the Centre for International Public Policy (CIPP), the Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (CIWAS), the Centre for the Politics of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East (AAME), the Democracy and Elections Centre, and the New Political Communications Unit.

We welcome applications from leading scholars in the field of International Relations. This call is open with respect to subfield, but applicants should be able to contribute to the intellectual life and development of one of the research centres listed above. We are particularly interested in applicants who specialise in international security (understood broadly), foreign policy analysis, and international relations theory.

Successful applicants will have a record of publications which are world-leading in terms of their originality, significance and rigour, and which would contribute strongly to the School’s submission to the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF). Successful applicants will also be ready to take a leadership role in the further development of International Relations at Royal Holloway. 

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
  • Free parking
