Job opportunity: Associate Lecturer (Teaching), Race, Ethnicity and Postcolonial Studies

28 November 2022

We are particularly interested in candidates who are familiar with the history of racism and racial orders as they bear upon social and cultural life in Britain but who have adopted transnational and/or global approaches. Closing date: 8th January 2023


The UCL Sarah Parker Remond Centre for the Study of Racism & Racialisation is multidisciplinary and international in outlook. It was established at UCL in 2019, and is co-Directed by Professors Paul Gilroy and Tariq Jazeel. The Centre’s work encompasses the cultures, literatures, histories and social relations of the Black Atlantic, Europe, Africa and the Americas but is not confined to those regions. We aim to include the social and economic life of racialised peoples and institutions wherever they are found.

We invite applications for a part-time Associate Lecturer in Race, Ethnicity and Postcolonial Studies. The post emerges as teaching cover for a core member of teaching staff who will be on a Leverhulme Research Grant from 1st April through end of December 2023. The appointee will be expected to contribute to the delivery of the MA in Race, Ethnicity and Postcolonial Studies. Specifically, the candidate will participate in dissertation supervision and marking from term 3, 2022-3 onwards. They will then make contributions to the MA programme’s two core modules in term 1, 2023-4.
