The Aga Khan University (International) in the United Kingdom is seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor to join the Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations to teach courses in sociology, political science and research methods.
You must have significant experience in research with a promising track record, a PhD in Political Science, Sociology, or a related field and a substantial research agenda for the years ahead. You will be an adaptable teacher, able to design and teach Research Methods and other courses in the Social Sciences. At AKU-ISMC, you will participate in the supervision of MA and PhD students. You will contribute teaching to the AKU Faculty of Arts and Sciences and for short courses or summer schools. You will also engage in public outreach, especially in the UK, such as communicating research to policy makers or writing material for secondary schools.

All faculty are expected to apply for external research funding independently and in collaboration with colleagues within the university and at partnering institutions.
