Lecturer in International Relations
Cardiff University - School of Law and Politics
United Kingdom

The School of Law and Politics is seeking to appoint outstanding candidate to join our internationally-renowned Department of Politics and International Relations.


The Department of Politics and International Relations is a dynamic and growing part of the inter-disciplinary School of Law and Politics. We are an intellectually pluralist and diverse community, with internationally-recognised and established strengths in political theory; Welsh politics and devolution; British political history; and European politics. In recent years the department has invested heavily in enhancing its strength in international relations and global politics, and now has a strong research profile in areas including cold war history; cyber-security; critical international theory; gender studies; international law; and intelligence studies. Research and teaching across the department embraces a variety of intellectual and methodological approaches. Moreover, being situated in a School of Law and Politics presents opportunities to innovate across disciplinary boundaries in both teaching and research.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate (Lecturer Grade 6 ) to enhance our teaching strength in international relations. We are open as to expertise in particular geographical areas and / or methodological and theoretical approaches, and we will accept applications from all scholars who would complement and extend the teaching and research activities of the Department of Politics and International Relations. However, we would be particularly keen to receive applications from candidates with expertise in global environmental politics, international security and/or critical international relations theory.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrated ability to teach to a high standard, and will be expected to contribute to the teaching programme of the department at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The successful candidate will further possess a proven ability in effective and persuasive communication to a variety of academic and non-academic audiences.

We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority background, as they are under-represented within Cardiff University.


This post is full time, fixed term for 9 months.
For further information about the Department and its work, please contact Professor Roger Awan-Scully, Head of the Department of Politics and International Relations, at HeadofPolitics@cardiff.ac.uk
