Job Description

Lecturer in International Politics

The University of London Institute in Paris seeks to appoint a Lecturer in International Politics to contribute to the delivery of innovative and engaging teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to further enhance the Institute’s reputation for interdisciplinary research.

ULIP’s BA programmes in International Politics, and French Studies, continue to grow, with student recruitment increasing each year. The new appointment is made in light of this growth, and the successful candidate will join a vibrant interdisciplinary department.

The initial duration of the contract is one year and is subject to French law (Contrat à durée déterminée). 

Located in the French capital, ULIP is committed to the development of students’ intercultural skills and transnational perspectives. Programmes at ULIP foreground comparative and connected approaches which situate France and the francophone world in relation to wider global dynamics and local diversities.

The successful candidate will hold a relevant PhD (or be close to completion) in International Politics or International Relations and have native or near-native fluency in English and French. Previous experience of module design, delivery and assessment at a Higher Education Institution is essential. They will have prior experience of teaching in these subject areas at undergraduate and/or graduate levels, including through virtual learning environments (VLEs). Experience of supervising student projects and dissertations is an asset.

ULIP programmes in International Politics highlight the role of non-state actors in dialogue with the State, and emphasise diverse forms of political engagement including dynamic interactions between politics and cultural expression of varied forms. Candidates are asked to submit a sample syllabus for an 11-week Level 5 module (2 hours per week; 20 students), demonstrating how their own research interests intersect with this approach.

The academic team at ULIP enjoys working closely with students to promote the diversification of pedagogical approaches and support for learning beyond the confines of the classroom. The successful candidate will share a commitment to these principles and be able to demonstrate prior experience of putting these principles into practice.

Essential criteria also include experience, or a willingness, to take part in the full range of academic duties. The ideal candidate will have experience in carrying out independent research and a strong record of publications in well-ranked, peer-reviewed journals, or a clear potential to attain such a record.

Applicants from backgrounds currently underrepresented within our faculty are especially encouraged to apply.
