The Politics Department at the University of Manchester invites applications for a lectureship/senior lectureship in Chinese Politics. The successful applicant will join a Department with three faculty already working on China. To complement their focus on China’s international affairs, we are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in any aspect of China’s domestic politics.
The person appointed will work closely with both a Politics research cluster (see below) and the new Manchester China Institute, which seeks to promote mutual understanding and trust in UK-China relations. Thanks to a visionary £5M gift, MCI will make China studies at The University of Manchester among the very best in the world.
Lectureship applicants must have, or be about to complete, a relevant PhD and demonstrate the potential to produce high-quality publications and to provide excellent teaching. Senior Lectureship applicants must already have a relevant PhD and a proven track record of high quality publications, excellent teaching, evidence of academic leadership, research grant income potential, successful supervision of doctoral students, and experience of administration/ management.
As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as female candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from female candidates. All appointments will be made on merit.
Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CVs or applications from Recruitment Agencies.
