Job description

The Department of Politics is looking for a committed and reliable academic to join our team for a period of three years. For this appointment we are looking for someone to help deliver our core undergraduate curriculum, particularly in the area of British Politics, and to support our political communication initiatives for students.


You will quickly become a fully integrated member of the Politics team and benefit from our many research development opportunities and our strong collegial culture. This lectureship might particularly suit you if you have just finished your PhD or are returning to an academic job after a career break and wishing to further develop your academic career.


Politics is part of the School of Law, Politics and Sociology (LPS). As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as we currently have an under-representation in the Department of a number of groups – in particular BAME and LGBT+ - we would particularly welcome applications from people who are members of these groups. All appointments will be made on merit.


If you have any questions about the job, please contact Claire Annesley, Head of Department for Politics, at claire.annesley@sussex.ac.uk
