The School of Social and Political Sciences is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Public Policy.
We welcome applications from outstanding senior scholars from across the social sciences. The ideal candidate will have a strong track record of excellent academic research, policy engagement, and innovative teaching and programme development.
The postholder will already have achieved Senior Lecturer (or equivalent), with experience of teaching and wider engagement activities with a range of practitioners within or connected to the policy community. We welcome applications from scholars who examine public policy from within their own area of expertise, while also demonstrating an ability to work across policy/disciplinary boundaries.
You will be expected to build and enhance the Centre’s reputation for research excellence, including securing external research funding and internationally excellent research publications. Their research will be strongly linked to an agenda of knowledge exchange and impact that has resulted in change or benefit to public policy, society, the economy, public health or the environment, beyond academia.
The postholder will be responsible for leading the Centre’s workstream on Executive Education and professional development, working with the Director and the wider team to design, coordinate and deliver innovative, practitioner-focused, policy-oriented education. The postholder will play a significant leadership role in building the Centre for Public Policy, adding new teaching, research, and impact activity. They will have the opportunity to lead major research projects. They will build active external stakeholder relationships that enhance the Centre’s reputation, advance knowledge exchange, policy and public engagement, and strengthen links with relevant professional bodies.
The successful applicant will work as part of a growing team within the Centre for Public Policy, with responsibility for making day-to-day decisions while planning & delivering their own workload with the support of the Director. A key part of the role will include offering support and supervision to ECRs and partnering with professional services colleagues within the team.
This post is offered on a full time (35 hrs per week) and open ended basis.
