The University of St Andrews is planning further substantial investment in its highly regarded School of International Relations. We therefore invite applications for up to five permanent positions at the lecturer level (a senior lectureship or readership may be available for exceptional candidates). On this occasion we would like to strengthen our existing research Institute’s/Centre’s in Middle Eastern, Central Asian and Caucasus studies and Peace and Conflict studies as well as further strengthen our portfolio in international security, including developing strength in the new Institute for War and Strategy and in International Political Economy and East Asian International relations. Thus, while all sub-fields of International Relations will be considered, preference may be given to those who show research and teaching specialisms in the following thematic areas: International Political Economy, International Security Studies (including strategic studies and critical security studies) and peace and conflict Studies, as well, additionally, in the following regional specialisms: Central Asia and the Caucasus, and East Asia (especially China). Finally, we have an interest in developing research and teaching in the international politics of energy and/or the environment. Candidates who can demonstrate expertise in more than one of these areas would be especially welcome. The School is committed to methodological pluralism so candidates working in these areas from any of the leading approaches in the field are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will have a research record with publications of international significance appropriate to the stage of their careers and all candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching.
The appointments will be from 1 September 2016, or as soon as possible thereafter.
Applications are particularly welcome from women who are under-represented in Arts posts at the University.
The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality, which is further demonstrated through its working on the Gender and Race Equality Charters and being awarded the Athena SWAN award for women in science, HR Excellence in Research Award and the LGBT Charter.
