Vacancy: Research and Teaching Fellow in Middle East Politics

University of Warwick

University of Warwick – Department of Politics and International Studies

This post is 36.5 hours per week, on a fixed term contract until 31 June 2017. 

Applications are invited for a Research and Teaching Fellow in Middle East Politics in the Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS) at the University of Warwick.

You will be joining one of the UK’s leading Politics Departments – PAIS was ranked 4th on ‘intensity’ in the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework and recorded 92% student satisfaction in the 2015 National Student Survey. We seek to appoint the best candidate in the field of Middle East politics, broadly defined to include cultural politics, political economy, political sociology, political anthropology, media studies, gender/feminist studies, international relations and/or contemporary history of the Middle East region.

You will be an early career researcher and teacher, committed to developing your research skills, writing for world-leading research publications and delivering excellent research-led teaching. You will balance your time between research assistance on the AHRC-funded project, ‘Politics and Popular Culture in Egypt: Contested Narratives of the 25 January Revolution and its Aftermath’ and teaching a module on Middle East politics (to be shaped by your research interests).

For an informal and confidential discussion about this opportunity, please contact Dr Nicola Pratt,, Reader in the International Politics of the Middle East.

Applications from women candidates and those from a minority ethnic background are particularly welcome as these groups are currently underrepresented within the department.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD thesis, any offer of employment made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Assistant at Level 5 in the University’s grade structure and with a salary of £28,143. Once your PhD has been awarded and we have evidence of this from you, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at Level 6 and with a salary within the range stated above.
