The Department of Political Science and International Studies in the School of Government at the University of Birmingham welcomes applications at Associate Professor level from candidates with research and teaching interests in political science and international studies.
We are seeking to appoint exceptional candidates to contribute to the department’s ambition to become a global top 50 department by 2030. We are particularly interested in applications from candidates with expertise in one or more of the School of Government’s core areas of strength and future growth – democracy and accountability; conflict, cooperation, and security; and social justice. We value passion for interdisciplinary research, methodological pluralism, and inclusive and transformative education.
The School of Government is intellectually vibrant with an excellent record in both research and teaching. It provides a supportive environment, enabling colleagues to engage internationally, build networks and deliver excellent teaching and research. Resources are available to facilitate research, grant capture, and impact and engagement activities. Staff are encouraged and supported to be innovative in their teaching, enabling students to thrive and build firm foundations in the discipline.
The School of Government comprises the Department of Political Science and International Studies, the Department of Public Administration and Policy (formerly Institute of Local Government Studies), and the International Development Department. We are one of the largest Schools of Government in the United Kingdom – home to more than 90 full-time academic staff, more than 1,500 undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, and more than 70 doctoral researchers.
You will contribute at a senior level to teaching, research, and administration. In addition you will be expected to contribute to academic citizenship, likely to be demonstrated through generous, mutually respectful and supportive working relationships with all staff and students.
Teaching is likely to include: (a) development and leadership of major teaching programmes or equivalent; and (b) enhancement of the student experience or employability.
Research is likely to involve an established national and international reputation through significant original research work and a clear record of impact.
Management and administration is likely to include Departmental/School leadership and management activity with University wide involvement – for example through sustained high value research, knowledge transfer, enterprise, business engagement, and public engagement or similar activities.
Successful candidates will have (or be close to finishing) a PhD in a relevant field and be established or emerging leaders in their field, evidenced, as appropriate to their career stage, by an outstanding record of publications, grant capture and research leadership.
All applications must contain the following supporting documents via the online application system:
Informal enquires to Professor René Lindstädt (Head of School of Government) at R.Lindstaedt@bham.ac.uk; Professor Stefan Wolff (Head of POLSIS) at email@example.com and/or Dr. Nicola Smith (Deputy HoD of POLSIS) at firstname.lastname@example.org
