Due to the continued success of the Institute and its commitment to addressing contemporary humanitarian challenges we are seeking to appoint an internationally excellent scholar specialising in humanitarian and disaster studies, with a particular interest in issues arising with the Anthropocene and climate crises. This lectureship is a permanent teaching and research position in which the successful candidate will conduct rigorous, in-depth research and analysis that will inform the delivery of high quality teaching.
Being an inter-disciplinary institute, we invite applications from candidates from an array of different backgrounds including geography, politics, anthropology, cultural studies and sociology. Areas of research might focus on climate crises in relation to migration and refugee studies, inequality and vulnerability, resistance, adaptation and livelihoods, governance or infrastructural futures. However, any expertise relative to humanitarian and disaster studies in relation to climate change broadly conceived are welcome.
You will be required to undertake course development for postgraduate taught and undergraduate programmes within HCRI, and you will design additional course units around your research interests. You will have a proven record of successful teaching and learning, and of high quality research outputs and/or education enterprise. Experience in informing policy development and NGO engagement is also desirable.
For an appointment to be made at senior lecturer level, you would also be expected to: have successfully supervised at least one doctoral student to completion; demonstrate significant contributions to academic enterprise or knowledge transfer; and have a record of attracting funds for significant research or educational projects, or consultancy work with external organisations.
As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.
