The School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol wishes to recruit a Professor in Global Governance and Public Policy. In line with the strategic development and expansion of our research and teaching programmes, we are seeking a high calibre individual who will contribute to a dynamic, ambitious and collegial environment that is at the forefront of intellectual developments within our interdisciplinary School.
The School has an exceptional reputation for teaching, research and public engagement. In the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF) over 95% of research in social work and social policy was rated world-leading or internationally excellent (Social Work and Social Policy). In the QS World Rankings we are consistently ranked in the top 30 worldwide and top ten in the UK. Our undergraduate programmes in criminology, social policy and childhood studies are consistently top rated in national league tables. We also deliver a Masters in Public Policy, which attracts students from across the globe, and Masters in Policy Research/Social Work Research. Our policy programmes have a strongly global, comparative and international component.
What will you be doing?
You will contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, but principally to our highly successful Masters in Public Policy in the first instance. You will also encompass the supervision of post-graduate research students as well as dissertation supervision at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The postholder will be expected to take on a leadership position related to teaching.
They will contribute to the School’s extensive research programme by engaging in externally funded research, working independently and/or in collaboration with colleagues, and producing high quality published outputs for academic and other relevant audiences.
You should apply if
The successful candidate will be expected to evidence a strong commitment to teaching, research, and management. Applicants will have a national and international reputation in the broad field of Global Governance and Public Policy and an outstanding track record of publications and externally funded research. We are interested in applicants working in any substantive policy area, but would particularly welcome applicants with an interest and expertise in: climate change and sustainability; social movements and collective action; inequalities, poverty and welfare.
While the area of specialism sought is Global Governance and Public Policy, the successful candidate will have the ability to work across sub-disciplinary areas and engage with research developments across the School and wider University
