Lecturer in Political Theory

Department of Government
University of Essex
Essex, United Kingdom
Application Deadline: 28 May, 2015

We are seeking to appoint two political theorists to join our vibrant political theory group at Essex, whose members have interests in human rights and theories of justice, democratic theory, critical and poststructuralist theory, and political discourse analysis. The successful candidates will combine a primary focus in normative political theory with strong expertise in another area, such as public policy, ethics, or human rights, and will contribute to the department’s expansion strategy, which aims to offer new modules in the area of political theory and public policy. The substantive area of expertise is open, although an ability to connect with areas of existing strengths in the department, such as political discourse analysis, international relations/conflict, political economy, political behaviour and/or comparative politics, would be a benefit.

The post holder is expected to conduct research and teaching in Political Theory at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will also (co-)supervise undergraduate projects, MA and PhD dissertations, and contribute to the successful administration and management of the Department.

The successful candidate will have obtained a PhD in Political Science or an allied field by the time the appointment begins. At Lecturer level you should also have demonstrable potential of excellence in both research and teaching in Political Theory, together with the potential to generate external research funding. At Senior Lecturer level you will also have a strong record of high-quality research publications, coupled with proven experience in academic management. At Reader level, in addition, you should be able to demonstrate a significant research portfolio to include a well-established track record of publications in leading refereed journals, research funding from a variety of sources and capability for dissemination to different audiences for research. For appointment at Professorial level you will be an internationally recognised leader in Political Theory.

We are looking to make one appointment at Lecturer level and another appointment which could be at any of the advertised levels. Please therefore indicate in your application which level you wish to be considered for.

We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority group, as they are under-represented at this level within this Department.
