UCL is establishing a new, permanent senior appointment within the fields of critical race studies, race theory, histories/representations of racialised thinking and racism, and/ or their social practices, impacts and effects.

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional individual to shape and become the founding Director of a new research centre, based in UCL’s Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS). The IAS is a research-based community of scholars, committed to critical thinking and engaged enquiry both within and across conventional disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

The Director will be responsible for setting up the Centre, helping to conceive its direction, appointing two lecturers and an administrator. They will design and deliver a taught Masters programme in conjunction with their new appointees and existing staff at UCL.

Candidates will hold a PhD in a relevant field, and will have a proven track record in the critical study of race, manifest through ambitious, world-leading scholarship, influential publications, success in establishing and leading significant research projects and teams as well as experience in applying for and gaining funding in related areas of study.

UCL pays a relocation supplement of £9,000 to newly appointed academic staff (lecturer through to Professor) who have to relocate their home to take up an appointment. For further details check Relocation Scheme .
