Duties and Responsibilities

The Department of Political Science/School of Public Policy at UCL is seeking to fill one position as Lecturer in Political Theory (equivalent of a U.S. tenure-track Assistant Professor position). The successful candidate will have research expertise in areas related to ethics and public policy, environmental justice, racial justice, or gender justice.  

The successful candidate will contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and post-graduate teaching programmes, including core modules (e.g. Ethics and Public Policy and Foundations of Political Thought). Candidates may also be expected to deliver a new module within their area of expertise (determined in conjunction with Departmental needs).    

We especially welcome applications from candidates from under-represented backgrounds, and from candidates using a wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches.  

This is an open ended post that will commence on 1st September 2021.

Key Requirements

The successful candidate must have a PhD in Political Science or related subject (candidates nearing completion may be considered).  

Evidence of proven ability or potential for academic research of internationally-recognised calibre, experience of teaching in contemporary political theory or related modules at undergraduate or postgraduate level and an excellent knowledge of relevant academic literatures is essential.
