Offer Description

The Department

SGIA is amongst the World's top 100 Politics departments (QS, 2023) and the UK's top 10 units in the field (Complete University Guide).

SGIA attracts some of the most highly qualified undergraduates in the UK to its exciting undergraduate degree programmes, which are scheduled to expand significantly over the coming eight years. The postgraduate student community is large, at over 200 taught and research students, and highly international. We deliver 5 subject-specific taught Masters degree programmes, including in International Relations; Defence, Development and Diplomacy; Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding, and Global Politics.

Our vibrancy is linked to the journals we host (Global Policy, Peacebuilding, and East Asia: an International Quarterly), to housing the administrative hub of the British Society for Middle Eastern Studies, and to our research Centres and Institutes in Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, Global Policy, Global Security, Political Thought and Contemporary Chinese Studies.

Our academic community ethos stresses equality and that we will provide an environment that supports all its members effectively. The successful candidate will join a vibrant School providing a stimulating and supportive environment for educational innovation. All staff have access to excellent individual support and Durham University's wealth of resources, as appropriate for a University that aims to be firmly within the world's top tier of Universities.

Shortlisting will take place between 15th June and 29th June with interviews being held on the 18th July
