Political Theory at Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh has a proud tradition in political theory: from David Hume to the late Neil MacCormick, individuals connected to the University have made significant contributions to the field. Political Theory at Edinburgh today is primarily based in Politics and International Relations (PIR). In the 50 years of its existence, PIR has made just 8 appointments in Political Theory, but these include an enviable concentration of world-leading scholars:

Jeremy Waldron (now Chichelle professor at Oxford; also at NYU)
Richard Bellamy (now professor at UCL)
Russell Keat (Chair of Political Theory 1993-2006; now emeritus professor at Edinburgh)
Cecile Fabre (Chair of Political Theory 2006-2010; now professor at Oxford)
Kimberly Hutchings (now professor at LSE)

Two appointed political theorists currently at Edinburgh are Tim Hayward and Elizabeth Cripps; Lynn Dobson and Mathias Thaler also primarily identify with the Political Theory subdiscipline within PIR.

Political Theory is today a central and critical part of both teaching and research in Politics and International Relations. The undergraduate curriculum is currently being revised to include enhanced Political Theory provision; and at masters level, we have a strategic aim of expanding provision, including in the broad areas of global justice and human rights. Political Theory has a long-established research group that holds a weekly seminar involving colleagues and postgraduate students not only from PIR but also from Philosophy and Law, as well as members of other Schools and other universities including Lancaster, York, St Andrews, Newcastle, Stirling and Glasgow. The Political Theory Research Group is a core part of the Just World Institute (JWI), supporting scholarly discussion of contemporary ethical concerns associated with public and international affairs, especially global issues of wealth/poverty, conflict/peace, and the environment.

Application Procedure

It is expected that interviews for the post will be held on 23rd April 2013. The selection procedure will involve an interview, which will be preceded by a presentation attended by members of PIR, and by other constituents of the School. Details of requirements for the presentation will be included in invitations to interview.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Tim Hayward, Head of Politics and International Relations.

Unless applicants signal that they withhold their permission, members of the subject area will be given an opportunity to inspect, in confidence, the letters of application and CVs of those who apply for this post, and the letters of application and CVs of short-listed applicants will be made available for inspection by all those attending any presentations prior to interview. Applicants should supply contact details of three referees, one of whom should be from their current institution. References will be confidential to the selection panel.
