We are dedicated to understanding problems of poverty and late development within local communities, as well as national and international political and economic systems. The appointed candidate will contribute to the intellectual life of the School through conducting and publishing outstanding quality research, engaging in high quality teaching as instructed by the Head of Department, and participating in the School and wider Department activities.

Based in the Department, the Fellow’s teaching will be concentrated in the MSc in Health and International Development with some teaching on Development: History, Theory and Policy. This is a Fellowship for an early-career scholar; it is intended that you will dedicate a significant amount of time to your own research, writing and professional development.


Successful applicants will also contribute to the scholarship and intellectual life of the School by conducting teaching and research which will enhance the School’s reputation as a research-led teaching institution, with appropriate mentoring from department. A key part of the work will involve supervising, teaching and examining Master’s level students through lectures, seminars, course work and tutorials.

Candidates should have completed or be close to completing a PhD from a social science discipline such as Politics, Development Studies, International Relations, Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, Social Policy, Health Policy or related subjects. A strong knowledge of health and international development, combined with a developing research record in health as related to broader issues in the field of international development, is required. 


We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities


The closing date for receipt of applications is 29 March 2019 (23.59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.


An LSE Fellowship is intended to be an entry route to an academic career and is deemed by the School to be a career development position.  As such, applicants who have already been employed as a LSE Fellow for three years in total are not eligible to apply.
