The Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR) at Oxford is an internationally renowned centre of excellence for teaching and research. The study of these disciplines at Oxford has a long and distinguished history and the department is one of the largest in the field in the UK.
The Oxford School of Global and Area Studies (OSGA) is one of the fifteen constituent Departments of the Social Sciences Division at Oxford. It represents a commitment by the University to enhancing teaching and research in Area Studies and is the largest community of Area Studies scholars anywhere in the world.
The Departments, in association with St Antony’s College, now seek jointly to appoint an inspirational teacher and accomplished research scholar to an Associate Professorship in European Union and Comparative East European Politics.
Applications are welcomed from outstanding candidates with teaching experience and a strong research background in European Union politics and expertise in comparative East European politics.
Essential criteria include a completed doctorate in political science or a closely related field, an outstanding, world-class portfolio of research and publications, as well as an exciting research programme. Preference will be given to scholars with a research programme in the politics of European Union integration, the politics of European Union institutions, and/or European Union public policy, and to scholars with a regional, rather than single-country focus, on the post-socialist countries of the region, as well as on the nexus between these post-socialist countries and the European Union. The ability to work with source materials in one or more of the official languages of the post-socialist countries of Eastern Europe is highly desirable for this post.
The successful candidate will be expected to engage actively in research and to contribute through world-class publications to the departments’ and University's international reputation for research excellence. The post-holder will also offer teaching in both the DPIR and OSGA, supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, contribute to administration and examining, and act as a College Adviser for graduate students.
The post will be held in conjunction with a Governing Body Fellowship at St Antony’s College. The post-holder will have a room for teaching and research in the Department of Politics and International Relations and St Antony’s College.
Associate Professor is the main academic career grade at Oxford with a focus on research and teaching, spanning the full range of professor grades in the USA. In exceptional cases, the title of full Professor may be awarded on appointment. Appointments to Associate Professorships are confirmed as permanent on successful completion of a review during the first 5 years. Any offer made will be subject to pre-employment checks. The post is offered on a full-time basis, available from 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
