Dear Colleagues,

I wanted to bring your attention to the position below at the University
of Warwick in International Politics and Japanese Studies.

Link here and full job specification pasted below:


The role is a combined Teaching and Research Fellow. There are some
teaching and research assistance requirements that come with the role,
but in practice there is also a lot of freedom for the role holder to
develop their own teaching and research and publications profile. PAIS
at Warwick is very supportive of early career academics and previous
role holders have gone on to gain permanent assistant professor
positions at the University of St. Andrews and University of Sheffield.

Please do spread the news to your networks.

The Department values diversity, aims to challenge discrimination, and
promotes equality. We are committed to strengthening our equality and
diversity agenda both in relation to our community (students and staff),
our research, and our curricula. Applications are welcome from under-
represented groups, including people who identify as Black, Asian and
other under-represented ethnicities, women, people with disabilities,
LGBTQUA+ people, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
We endeavour to support all our staff in their work in PAIS.

You will be joining one of the UK’s leading Politics and International
Studies departments: in the 2021 The Times/The Sunday Times Good
University Guide PAIS ranked 4th of 84 UK Politics Departments; in

research intensity; and in the 2020 National Student Survey PAIS
recorded the highest overall satisfaction among our Russell Group peers.

International Relations of the Asia-Pacific and PO9B5 East Asian
Development Policies. You will also support the supervision of
dissertations in International Relations and East Asia at undergraduate
and postgraduate levels. You will have a commitment to use and develop
further e-learning tools and innovative teaching techniques within the
classroom. We are looking for an exceptional and inspirational teacher
who takes pride in their work.

You will balance your teaching duties with supporting the research
profile (50%) of Professor Christopher Hughes during his tenure as
Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education. This will involve assisting in
