The Department is seeking to appoint an LSE Fellow who is able to make an important contribution to its teaching, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to its research.

Job Description

 

This is a fixed-term appointment for one year in the first instance, starting from 2 September 2019, with the possibility of an extension for a further year

 

The Department of Social Policy at LSE is the longest established in the UK and has received the highest possible rating in all Research Assessment Exercises carried out in the UK. The 2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject place the Department of Social Policy 3rd in the world.

 

The Department is seeking to appoint an LSE Fellow who is able to make an important contribution to its teaching, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to its research. The post presents an excellent starting point for an academic to gain teaching experience while developing their research career. The post arises because of the sabbatical leaves of departmental faculty members.

 

You will provide teaching on several courses, notably SA104 Social Economics and Policy (BSc level) and PP4X6 Welfare Analysis and Measurement (MSc/MPA level). You must have relevant teaching experience and excellent communication skills. Teaching-related administrative experience would be an advantage. By the post’s start date, you will have completed or be close to obtaining a PhD in social policy, economics, or another area related to the topics covered by SA104 and PP4X6; and you will have a developing research record in social and public policy.

 

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

Applications must be received by 3 March 2019 (23:59 UK time). Regrettably, we are unable to accept any late applications.

 

Interviews are scheduled for the 25 and 26 April 2019.
