As part of its research and teaching provision in the Politics of the Muslim World, the School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) at Durham University invites applications from outstanding candidates to a Lectureship in the International Relations of the Middle East. This full-time, non-fixed term position is available from 1 September 2014.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the University.

The School of Government and International Affairs was formed in August 2004 by the merging of the Department of Politics and the Institute for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies. The School currently has 30 full-time academic members of staff with several other fractional appointments. The School is international in character in terms of its work and the background of its staff and students.

The School experienced a significant increase in funding as a result of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and has grown rapidly since. All members of staff were entered into RAE 2008, when the School had fifty per cent of its research rated as world leading and internationally excellent. Its current Research Strategy has identified the Politics of the Muslim World as one of its two ‘research peaks’ – that is, an area in which the University aims to establish itself as world-leading in research, teaching, and impact on public debate.

The School is housed in two locations, along the same Elvet Hill Road, close to the University Library. The Al Qasimi Building is a multi-million pound purpose-built facility, opened in 2002. It offers superb teaching and office facilities. It is home to the Institute for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and is the base for many of the School’s activities. Several School staff are also housed in South End House, close to Van Mildert College.
