The Politics Department sits within the School of Social Sciences and is a research-oriented department delivering excellent teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students. To further strengthen our research and teaching portfolio, in line with our strategic objectives, the Department wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Global Political Economy. While we invite applications from applicants in all fields of global political economy, we particularly encourage those whose research considers the linkages between racialisation/race and capitalism. Available from 1 September 2022
The successful candidate will be based in the Global Political Economy cluster, whose ten permanent members of staff have shared interests in critical IPE, capitalism, and neo-liberalism, with particular strengths in global inequalities, including gender inequalities in global economic governance, finance and trade, and the environment and sustainability. Recent highlights include Silke Trommer and Adrienne Roberts’ Canadian SSHRC grant on global trade governance, Sherilyn MacGregor’s large Leverhulme award, and Carl Death’s prize-winning work on the Green State in Africa.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
