Balliol College and the Department of Politics and International Relations


Balliol College, in association with the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, proposes to appoint a fixed-term Fellow in Politics for two academic years (2001-02 and 2002-03). The starting date for the Fellowship will be 1 October 2001. The salary for the post will be spine point 6 on the national scale, currently £18,731 a year (subject to review).

The Fellowship arises through the award of a two-year British Academy Readership to Dr Sudhir Hazareesingh. The Fellow will be required to teach parts of the Politics components in the Preliminary Examination and Final Honour Schools of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) and Modern History and Politics. Applications will be welcome from candidates able to teach any of the historical and institutional aspects of the Prelim course, and any of the following three Honours' core papers: International Relations, Political Sociology, and Comparative Government. An ability to teach one or more of the Politics optional papers would also be welcome. Candidates should indicate clearly in their application which papers they are able and willing to teach.

The duties of the Fellow will be to teach Balliol Politics students; to help manage the interface between Politics and other subjects within the College; to participate in the admissions process for undergraduates and graduates; and to play a pastoral role. There will also be some Departmental duties, such as participating in the activities of subject panels and contributing to the lecturing of the Department (not exceeding two courses of lectures). The Fellow will teach no more than twelve hours a week. The Fellow will be a full member of the Balliol Governing Body and will be entitled to a teaching room in College and to free meals at the Common Table. The College will also provide an annual Academic Support Allowance of £785 (for research-related expenses) and an annual housing allowance of £3,401.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of two referees, should be sent to the College Secretary, Balliol College, Oxford, OX1 3BJ, no later than 23 April 2001. Candidates should ask their referees to send in their submissions by that date. Enquiries about the academic aspects of the Fellowship should be e-mailed to sudhir.hazareesingh@balliol.ox.ac.uk.

The University of Oxford is an equal opportunities employer.
