Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in global health?
Are you able to use your expertise to support or complement our existing strengths in the School of Politics and International Studies?
Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?
The School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) covers research and teaching across politics, international relations and global development, and while you may have a primary academic identity you will work across the School as a whole. This post is open to scholars with research strengths across public health, global health policy, health system strengthening and health security. However, we are particularly keen to hear from researchers working in areas such as health system strengthening, health security, and global public health, with expertise and experience from the Global South. As a research active academic, you will maintain a strong research and publication record, and contribute to the School’s research activities and research culture. You will be expected to help design and deliver undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules on global health, as well as supervising BA and MA dissertations; and to recruit and supervise PhD candidates. You will be encouraged to contribute to ongoing research and policy collaborations with the World Health Organization as well as other non-academic partners working in global health.
You will carry out research, teaching and management within the school, faculty and university and contribute to academic leadership in your field, working within University values and policies which are designed to promote dignity, diversity and inclusiveness. The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and would particularly welcome applicants from the Global South and/or from groups currently under-represented in the School. All appointments will be made on merit.
