This is a fixed term appointment for 12 months from 2 September 2019
The Department of Gender Studies was established in 1993 as the Gender Institute to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations. This remains a central aim of the Institute today, which is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe. The Gender Institute is interested in mapping and intervening in the gendered nature of social processes, and believes that an integrated interdisciplinary and global approach is needed to do so. In our research and teaching we aim to combine theory and practice with an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective.
We are looking to recruit a candidate at the level of LSE Fellow in Gender, Film and Media to teach on our MSc programme in Gender Media and Culture as well as contribute to our core course in gender theory. The ability to take responsibility for delivering a course on contemporary film and cultural theory is essential.
Candidates should have been awarded a PhD in social sciences, humanities or a closely related subject, by the close of application; a very good knowledge of and developing research record in Gender, film and cultural theory, transnational cinema, and/or gender and media. Candidates should also have excellent communication and presentation skills; the ability to work in close partnership with fellow teachers, including on a one-on-one basis and in small groups, and to provide effective support, as necessary. Demonstrable teaching experience in gender studies and areas within the Gender, Media and Culture fields is essential and relevant teaching experience at graduate level would be desirable.
We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 12 April 2019 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications. Interviews are expected to be held in the week beginning 13 May 2019.
