Applications are invited for the position of Departmental Lecturer in Japanese International Relations/Politics which is available from 1 October 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to 30 September 2023.

You will be expected to lecture, tutor and supervise students on the MSc and MPhil in Japanese Studies, and on the BA programme in Japanese Studies, including in Research Methods. You will be required to produce lecture notes, course materials, reading lists, and reference guides as required by the programme. You will engage in assessment and University examining for the Japanese Studies programme and manage your own academic research activities, conduct independent research and develop scholarship in areas relevant to the Japanese Studies programmes. Japanese Studies are seeking an inspirational teacher and researcher with both breadth and depth of knowledge in Japan's international relations, preferably of East Asia and/or politics, and who will become a fully active member of the department.

You will have been awarded a doctorate in a relevant disciplinary and area studies field. You will possess an aptitude and enthusiasm for teaching and a demonstrable record of conducting high-quality teaching and research across international relations and politics.  We will give preference to specialists with a broader regional (East Asia) interest, but not at the expense of a solid grasp of Japanese politics, and ability to undertake research using primary Japanese language sources. You will also have a sound knowledge of relevant research methods (quantitative and/or qualitative), particularly as they relate to Area Studies.

Please email any queries for the attention of Professor Hugh Whittaker to the email address below.
