The Department of War Studies at King’s College London has recently celebrated its 60th anniversary and is one of the very few academic departments in the world focused on understanding the complex realm of war, conflict, security and international politics through inter-disciplinary teaching, research, and engagement. Alongside its sister department, Defence Studies, based at the UK Defence Academy, War Studies sits within the School of Security Studies, a community of over 200 academic and research staff, and over 300 post-graduate research students.
The Department is currently seeking to appoint a distinguished scholar who has an outstanding international profile in the field of War Studies. We are particularly interested in inviting those with expertise in strategic studies, international security and aspects of contemporary war to join our vibrant research and scholarly community.
The post-holder will be equipped to deliver outstanding, impactful research, as evidenced by publications of the highest quality. They will demonstrate intellectual leadership and success in generating research income, and have a clear and well developed strategy for future research and grant capture. They will also be equipped to support the department’s work on knowledge exchange with the potential to influence public understanding and policy initiatives.
The post-holder will demonstrate excellence in teaching, and the capacity to deliver innovative, research-led teaching to students at all levels. They will be committed to training, mentoring and supporting the next generation of scholars in war, conflict, security and international politics. It is also critical that the successful applicant can evidence a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusivity with the ability to nurture a positive culture that supports the development of all staff and students.
