This appointment will join the Liberal Arts Department and will play a pivotal role in expanding online educational offerings related to the online Master’s in Global Cultures, supporting its expansion as a leading interdisciplinary programme in Arts & Humanities. This role will also play an important role in developing out King’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Executive Education (EE) offerings.
The MA in Global Cultures enables students (especially those in professional or employment contexts) to engage with concepts and practices addressing contemporary global challenges, (in)equalities and action for inclusion in global contexts and diverse workplaces.
Alongside the contributions to the Global Cultures programme and its future developments, the post-holder may also be involved in aspects of the Liberal Arts Department and providing pastoral support to undergraduate students. The post-holder may also be required to contribute to compulsory, co-taught modules of the Liberal Arts undergraduate programme, which underpin the interdisciplinary ethos of the programme. Therefore, a strong commitment to and experience of interdisciplinary education and scholarship is highly desirable.

As part of the Liberal Arts team, the lecturer will contribute to fostering an active culture of engagement with the BA and MA programmes, including organising and attending extra-curricular activities.

Working on multidisciplinary content development and within online teaching teams, it is expected the post-holder will contribute to the teaching and administration of key modules of the Global Cultures MA, such as:
The post-holder will also be expected to play a key role in future initiatives related to the Global Cultures programme, including the development and provision of new Executive Education and Professional Development Modules, including the launch of a new module, ’Offence’, on global religion, competing belief systems and ‘culture wars’.
This lectureship will fall within the Academic Education Pathway, which is focused on the delivery of pedagogically-innovative education, education-related scholarship, and leadership in education. We seek applicants who can contribute to our goals of delivering exciting, inclusive, and socially-engaged education in a global context, and the ongoing diversification of our curriculum. We particularly welcome candidates who have expertise on any areas from the Global South.
