Politics and International Relations is a unit of the School of Social Sciences, which is situated in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We are based in Westminster’s Fitzrovia campus at the heart of the West End in Central London.

 

We pride ourselves on advanced theoretical and empirical teaching and research in the broad field of Politics and International Relations. We offer research-informed teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, with a particular emphasis on teaching that is respectful of our students’ range of interests and requirements. We have a serious commitment to enhancing student experience and achieve consistently high NSS results. We also host the student-run Democratic Education Network (DEN) to support student experience beyond the formal curriculum. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, Politics and International Relations was recognised as one of the five most improved Departments in the UK, with 96% of its publications ‘world leading’, ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘internationally recognised’ in terms of ‘originality, significance and rigour’. We have an active research culture embodied within the highly regarded Centre for the Study of Democracy. We are known for our commitment to embedding our research events in our teaching, and to having a diverse staff body.

 

Candidates will have a proven record of successful teaching and student support, along with evidence of research capacity. We are looking for an outstanding candidate to provide excellent teaching within the discipline of Politics and International Relations, working with the existing team to support students from a diverse range of backgrounds, including through DEN. They will possess sufficient breadth or depth of specialist knowledge to be able to deliver high-quality teaching and support to established teaching programmes. We would particularly welcome those with a capacity to teach Global Security, Development, Ethics, Postcolonial Politics, and/or Global Political Economy. We expect the successful candidates to have strong potential for research in Politics and International Relations, as they will be expected to contribute a submission in the next round of our Research Excellence Framework exercise. They will also support the School and University purpose of being progressive, compassionate, responsible, diverse and inclusive.
