Assistant Professor in Gender and Politics (Quantitive Methods)
We are recruiting an outstanding candidate for an Assistant Professorship in Gender and Politics with Quantitative Methods to join Durham University’s School of Government and International Affairs during a period of major expansion.
Ideal candidates will have an established or rapidly developing record of publications in leading political science journals and/or with highly regarded presses, and clear plans to develop their research over the next five years that will place them at the forefront of substantive and methodological debates in gender and politics. We are open-minded in relation to substantive focus, emphasising the excellence of research above all, and the use of innovative and ambitious quantitative empirical research to address important political questions.
The successful candidate will join colleagues in the Centre for Institutions and Political Behaviour, which provides a stimulating and supportive environment for developing and refining research projects and outputs, networking with colleagues within and beyond Durham, and pump-priming financial support. All staff have access to excellent individual research support and Durham University’s wealth of research resources, as appropriate for a University that aims to be firmly within the world’s elite.
