The Department of Political Economy seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Politics with a specialism in Business and Politics. The successful candidate will contribute to the Department through (quantitative and/or qualitative) research and teaching that centre on the interplay between politics and business; for instance, the governance of business (incl. economic policy making and regulation) and/or the influence of business on politics.
The Department is informed by an inclusive interdisciplinary vision and welcomes applications from candidates who share that vision. The Department values diversity and inclusion and a work-life balance.
The Department of Political Economy is a unique interdisciplinary enterprise located in the heart of London with proximity to both the world of politics and the City. Founded in 2010, it is the only dedicated Department of Political Economy in the United Kingdom. The teaching and research recognises that the disciplines of Politics and Economics are inextricably linked: it is not possible to properly understand political processes without exploring the economic context in which politics operates. Similarly, sound economic analysis requires an awareness of how resource allocation is conditioned by political institutions, historical context and ethical values, and the way these have been understood by different traditions in social thought. In a world characterised by financial uncertainty, ecological insecurity and value conflict, the links between political and economic processes are ever more apparent and the need for a multifaceted appreciation of how they operate, has never been greater.
You will be responsible to the Head of Department. More information about the Department, School and Faculty can be found on the King’s website:
