The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the teaching of all Politics papers to first year students preparing for the Preliminary Examinations in PPE and in History & Politics, and to the teaching of at least two second-year courses for students studying both core and optional papers in Politics.

They must demonstrate an ability to teach effectively, to contribute to the organisation of the degree and some College administration and that they have the interpersonal skills necessary for the pastoral care of students.

The person appointed will have or will have obtained by 1st October 2022 a doctoral degree in Politics and will be expected to engage in original research. The annual salary will be on the University’s Grade 6 for Academic Staff (currently £29,614 - £35,326).
