Grade 7: Salary in the range £31,076 - -£38,183 p.a. (pro rata)

We are seeking a part-time (60%), fixed-term Departmental Lecturer to assist in teaching and supervision for the MSc and MPhil in Russian and East European Studies. The post is a part time fixed term post until 30 September 2019 made available due to the secondment of the permanent post holder.

Applications are invited from scholars with active research interests in the politics of Eastern Europe with preference given to specialists with a regional, rather than single-country, focus on the post-socialist countries (Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, and the Balkan states of the former Yugoslavia). You will demonstrate an ability and willingness to give tutorials, lectures, classes and supervision at graduate level. You will also be required to undertake examining and administrative work, and will engage in advanced study and original research in the politics of Eastern Europe.

You will hold a doctorate in a relevant field (i.e. politics, comparative politics, or political sociology of Eastern Europe) and have a strong research record. A commitment to Area Studies as an intellectual project is desirable. You will also have the ability to teach and lecture at an appropriate level in an interesting and engaging manner, and a willingness to undertake examining and administrative duties.

This is a part-time position (60% FTE).

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
