The Department of International Development promotes interdisciplinary postgraduate teaching and research on processes of political, economic, and social development and change. We are dedicated to understanding problems of poverty and late development within local communities, as well as national and international political and economic systems.


The appointed candidate will contribute to the intellectual life of the School through conducting and publishing outstanding quality research, engaging in high quality teaching as instructed by the Head of Department, and participating in the School and wider Department activities.

Based in the Department, the Fellow’s teaching will be concentrated in the MSc in Economic Policy for International Development. A key part of the work will involve supervising, teaching and examining masters’ level students through lectures, seminars, course work and tutorials. This is a Fellowship intended for an early-career scholar; it is expected that the fellow will dedicate a significant amount of time to their own research, writing and professional development.


Candidates should have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD from a social science discipline with strong quantitative training such as Economics, Public Policy, Political Economy or related subjects.. Excellent communication and presentation skills and the ability to work in close partnership with other teachers, including on a one-on-one basis and in small groups, and to provide effective support, as necessary is also essential. Having research experience in a developing country is also desirable.


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