The University of York wishes to appoint at least three new Lecturers in the Department of Politics. We are looking to appoint outstanding candidates with a proven track record of research and teaching in one or more of the following sub-fields: conflict, human rights, comparative politics and public policy. We are hoping to appoint at least one candidate with expertise in quantitative methods. The new appointments will undertake research of the highest international standards in their specialist field and make a major positive contribution to the research standing and culture of the Department. They will also play a full part in course design, teaching, research supervision, and administration in the Department. The posts are available from 1 September 2021 and are on an open contract.
Interview date: 7 and 8 June 2021
