Dahrendorf Post-Doctoral Fellow: European Political Culture

 

Salary from £34,156 to £41,317 pa inclusive

 

This is a fixed term appointment for 24 months from 4 September 2017 and is full time for 35 hours per week

 

LSE IDEAS, the LSE’s foreign policy think tank, seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow for the Dahrendorf Forum (www.dahrendorf-forum.eu/). The Dahrendorf Forum is a platform for debating Europe, through original research and policy engagement. It is a joint initiative between the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), funded by Stiftung Mercator. 

 

This will be the Dahrendorf Forum’s fourth research ‘cycle’ and the Postdoctoral Fellow will contribute to its research agenda, looking at societal change and politics in Europe (with special emphasis on the implications of the migration crisis, populism, Brexit and other recent crises). As well as playing an active role in the Dahrendorf team at LSE IDEAS, you will collaborate closely with the Berlin-based Working Group chaired by Professor Helmut Anheier and Professor Andrea Römmele (both based at the Hertie School). With them you will explore a range of areas including the rise of populism and electoral trends In Europe; migration and refugees; democratic control and national sovereignty, the impact of globalisation; and anti-EU sentiment.

 

Candidates should already hold a PhD (awarded or successfully defended by the deadline for applications) in relevant areas of political science, public policy or international relations, as well as a record of publication - or the potential to publish - in high quality academic and non-academic formats. Significant demonstrable experience of policy outreach and knowledge exchange is also highly desirable. Candidates should have an enthusiastic, hands-on approach and willingness to play an active role in a small but dynamic team.

 

As the position is affiliated to the Hertie School-based Working Group, s/he will be expected to maintain regular contact with Dahrendorf Team colleagues in Berlin and travel there frequently to participate in activities.

 

LSE offers a generous annual leave package and excellent training and development opportunities.
