LSE Fellow in Political Science and Public Policy

Salary from £40,229 to £48,456 pa inclusive with potential to progress to £52,095 pa inclusive of London allowance.

This is a fixed term appointment for two years in the first instance.

The LSE School of Public Policy equips students with the skills and ideas to transform people and societies. We are an international community where ideas and practice meet, creating professionals with the ability to analyse, understand and resolve the challenges of contemporary governance.

We are now recruiting an LSE Fellow to contribute to the postgraduate teaching of the School of Public Policy. An LSE Fellow is a career development post which allows aspiring academics who are post PhD, or close to PhD completion, the opportunity to gain experience in teaching and research.

The post-holder will contribute to the teaching of seminars in the field of empirical political science and its application to policymaking. Specifically, the post-holder will teach seminars (groups of c. 15 students) for course codes PP401 and PP478.

The post-holder will also play a key role in supporting the provision of a rich and engaging learning environment for our high-calibre and high fee-paying students. The post-holder will join LSE’s world-leading and vibrant research community in the social sciences. Faculty of the School of Public Policy will ensure the integration of the post-holder into that research community, in which s/he will be expected to play a full part.

Candidates should hold, or be demonstrably close to the completion of, a PhD in the field of empirical political science related to public policy. S/he will require excellent written and oral communication skills preferably with some relevant teaching experience. Candidates must also be able to demonstrate an ability to foster an engaging and supportive learning environment.

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

For further information about the post, please see the how to apply document, job description and the person specification.

The role is available from 1 September 2023 and it is expected that the successful candidate will take up the post on that date or very shortly thereafter.

An LSE Fellowship is intended to be an entry route to an academic career and is deemed by the School to be a career development position. As such, applicants who have already been employed as an LSE Fellow for three years in total are not eligible to apply. If you have any queries about this, please contact the HR Division.
