Job description

The Department of Political Economy invites applications for a lectureship in Political Behaviour. We define political behaviour broadly and, therefore, we encourage outstanding candidates from all subfields of political science to apply. The purpose of the role is to contribute to the consolidation of the political science strand in the department by providing research rigour and leadership as well as by enhancing the teaching of our politics and interdisciplinary degrees.

We are seeking candidates, particularly early career researchers, with strong quantitative skills and/or experience with experimental methods. The successful applicant will be expected to develop an original research agenda as well as be able to contribute to teaching on modules on political behaviour, quantitative methods and causal inference techniques on our interdisciplinary degree programmes at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels. 

Founded in 2010, the department is the only dedicated Department of Political Economy in the United Kingdom. The teaching and research recognises that the disciplines of Politics and Economics are inextricably linked; it is not possible to properly understand political processes without exploring the economic context in which politics operates. Similarly, sound economic analysis requires an awareness of how resource allocation is conditioned by political institutions, historical context and ethical values, and the way these have been understood by different traditions in social thought. In a world characterised by financial uncertainty, ecological insecurity and value conflict, the links between political and economic processes are ever more apparent and the need for a multifaceted appreciation of how they operate, has never been greater.

You will be responsible to the Head of Department.
