Job Description

We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

Alongside our teaching and research, we are growing our expertise in experiential learning and practice across all subject areas.

This is an exciting time to join the Department of Social and Political Sciences. We are looking for a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in International Relations, with a specialism in International Security.  We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate who is a strong team player and can contribute to teaching, research and scholarship in political violence and terror as well as contribute to the teaching and delivery of our international security modules and core curriculum in Politics and International Relations.
