We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Lecturer in Environmental Politics.
The Department of Politics and International Relations is one of the UK’s most successful centres for teaching and research and aims to play a key role in defining and shaping the future of the discipline in the twenty-first century.
We are seeking to appoint a full-time Lecturer in Politics and International Relations with a specialism in Environmental Politics to enhance our teaching and research capacity. The candidate will be supported with mentoring and career development.
You will be committed to developing your research profile through high-quality publications, applying for research funding, working with communities and stakeholders to deliver impact, supervising research students, and engaging with wider political debate or public policy. You will be an enthusiastic teacher and will play a key role in maintaining the Department’s high level of teaching through devising, designing, preparing, and delivering innovative teaching programmes and relevant specialist areas. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you can demonstrate a capacity to look at issues afresh and challenge convention.
We would like to hear from you if you are working on Environmental Politics, including the behaviour of political parties and groups, activism, decoloniality, development, human rights, human security, post human and animal politics approaches (whether in the Global North or South), or the politics of natural resource exploitation, environmental protection, conservation, and climate change. We are open to explorations of these issues at local, national, regional and global levels of analysis.
The positions are open-ended, available from 1 May 2023.
Enquires about the position should be directed to the Head of Department – Professor Charlotte Burns (firstname.lastname@example.org) T. 0114 222 1703.
