A Lecturer in Strategic Communications is sought to join the team in the Department of War Studies. Candidates should hold a doctorate and demonstrate a developing research path in Strategic Communications, primarily understood as political and geopolitical communications carrying implications for national security. The candidate should have already produced excellent publishing outputs that have contributed to theoretical and conceptual understanding of their field.
The successful candidate will contribute to development and delivery of Level 7 teaching on strategic communications theory and practice to a broad age range of international students, many of whom will be career practitioners drawn from governments, national security, and international organisations. They will also be expected to be able to contribute to wider teaching within the Department of War Studies in international relations, national security or conflict. Candidates will contribute to the development of new courses and assist in organising and supervising seminars and student activities. They will be expected to take on a leadership role in the world-leading Centre for Strategic Communications and work with colleagues to expand the School’s strategic communications education and research. This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to help shape the strategic communications research agenda of a world-class department at the heart of international academic and policy networks.
This post will be offered on a full-time, indefinite contract.
