The Department of Gender Studies established to address the major intellectual challenges posed by contemporary changes in gender relations, is the largest research and teaching unit of its kind in Europe. Academic staff come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, but we are united in our commitment to mapping and intervening in the gendered nature of social processes, and in our belief that an integrated interdisciplinary and global approach is needed to do so. In our research and teaching we combine theory and practice, with an interdisciplinary and transnational perspective. 


We are looking to recruit a candidate at the level of LSE Fellow to teach on our MSc programme in Gender, Peace and Security, as well as contribute to our core course in gender theories. To this end, we require someone with excellent communication and presentation skills and the ability to work in close partnership with fellow teachers, including on a one-on-one basis and in small groups.


All applicants should have completed a PhD in social sciences, humanities or a closely related subject at the time of application. The successful candidate will have a very good knowledge of and developing research record in the inter-related fields of gender peace and security with a focus on one or more of the following: feminist peace approaches, conflict resolution, peacebuilding, peacekeeping and/or post-conflict reconstruction; human rights, international law and transitional justice; countering violent extremism, securitisation; political economy approaches to violence; sexuality, embodiment and war; critical military studies; the humanitarian and aid industry or other related fields.  In addition to demonstrable teaching experience in gender studies and areas related to gender, peace and security at graduate level, some experience working with policies, practitioners and professionals in a consultative and/or pedagogic manner, experience of managing and contributing to course virtual learning environments (e.g. Moodle).


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