Professor of Politics or International Relations

Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy

Full-Time, Permanent

The Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy at Royal Holloway seeks to appoint a Professor in Politics or International Relations . The successful applicant would be expected to start in July 2020.

About the Department. The Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy is part of the School of Law and Social Sciences. It is a research-intensive unit that offers teaching which both challenges and enriches students. We provide a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes. We carry out research across the different disciplines, but we place special emphasis on our research centres: the Centre for International Security, the Democracy and Elections Centre, the Global Politics and Development Centre, and the New Political Communication Unit.

About the role. We’re looking for someone who makes distinctive research contributions in the field of politics or international relations broadly defined and can contribute to the growth and development of one of our research centres. We are interested in hearing from applicants working in a range of different subfields, including but not limited to comparative and non-western politics, international relations, political communication, political economy, political participation, public policy, and security studies. Applicants should have a track record of publications and grant income that is commensurate with a professorial position.

We’re also looking for someone who can shape our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. As a department that practices research-led teaching, we’ll expect you to offer a third-year module defined by your research interests – and contribute to one of our MSc. programmes.

About the characteristics we value. Alongside research and teaching, we’re looking for individuals who can build intellectual communities, and who have, over the course of their career, demonstrated the value of collaborative working. That experience may have been gained in administrative roles within universities, within professional associations, or through editing academic journals or other shared resources.

This is a full time and permanent post.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
