We are looking for someone to teach on a range of modules in Politics and International Relations, with specific expertise around the Americas and democratic theory and/or the history of democracy, to undergraduate and postgraduate students. This will involve the preparation and delivery of lectures and other classes, as well as supervising dissertations, and the associated marking and administrative roles in such a post. You will also take on the role of Programme Leader of the Politics and International Relations degree. You will be working as part of a team in the delivery of the teaching of politics and international relations. Within this team, there is a strong research ethos which informs and underpins that teaching.
The role is on a full time (37 hours per week), permanent basis.
The ideal candidate will have experience of leading academic programmes, and have a strong research profile in the politics of the Americas and in democracy or democratic theory. This, in turn, should inform their teaching. The ideal candidate should have a passion for delivering quality education, as well as stimulating student enquiry. The ideal candidate should also be a ‘team’ player, willing to work with colleagues across the section, school and faculty.
