To further strengthen our research and teaching portfolio the Department wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Global Political Economy. While we invite applications from applicants in all areas of global political economy, we particularly encourage those whose research complements existing research strengths and/or engages with debates about empire, racial capitalism, social movements, resistance to capitalism, or food sovereignty/security.
The successful candidate will be based in the Global Political Economy cluster, whose ten permanent members of staff have shared interests in critical IPE, capitalism and crises, and neo-liberalism, with particular strengths in global inequalities and the political economy of the environment and sustainability. Recent highlights include Silke Trommer and Adrienne Roberts’ Canadian SSHRC grants on gender and global trade governance, Sherilyn MacGregor’s Leverhulme Award on Environmental Sustainability in Immigrant Households, and Carl Death’s prize-winning work on the Green State in Africa. The cluster sits within the larger Department of Politics, whose research strengths are reflected, among other things, in the 2021 REF in which the Department was placed 8th out of 56 in the UK on Grade Point Average (GPA), 5th on publications and 3rd on 4* publications.
To further strengthen our research and teaching portfolio the Department wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Political Theory.
