The School for Policy Studies wishes to appoint a three-year fixed term Lecturer in Social Policy. The successful candidate will join an ambitious and collegial School that pushes forward intellectual debates and real-world solutions to a range of policy and social dilemmas within an interdisciplinary environment.
The School for Policy Studies 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 social policy, criminology, and childhood studies are consistently top rated in national league tables. We also deliver a highly successful 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?
The appointee will contribute to teaching at all levels but especially on our undergraduate programmes in Social Policy, and International Social and Public Policy.
The post-holder will deliver high quality teaching on mandatory and optional units and supervision inputs, as well as teaching on core academic and research skills. Teaching may include contributions to Key Concepts, Theories and Ideologies in Social Policies, Global Challenges, Collective Action and Policy Change, Understanding Public Policy, International Political Economy, Critical Skills, and Research Methods. The post-holder will also undertake a share of personal tutoring responsibilities.
Collegiality is central to the functioning of the School and we wish to recruit an individual who is willing to actively contribute to teaching administration.
You should apply if
The post is open to applicants with expertise in any aspect of social and public policy, but we would particularly welcome applicants with teaching interests in any of the following: social policy key concepts; collective action and collective bargaining; theories of the policy process; global challenges; international political economy; and critical skills and research methods.
