Appointment of Chair in Chinese International Relations

The Lau China Institute at King’s College London conducts research, educates and engages in public and policy debates on contemporary China and its history. The Institute aims to work with Chinese scholars and others, seeking research collaborations and deeper mutual understanding with the People's Republic of China. The Institute’s mission sits at the heart of King's commitment to world-class research and service to society. Established in 2011, the Lau China Institute now has a community of core academics and postgraduate students, including roughly 30 PhD students, linked to a broader community of scholars across King’s. The Institute is based within the School of Global Affairs, and works across the University and beyond, to engage in multi-disciplinary and innovative research.

The Institute is seeking a new chair for Chinese International Relations, strengthening the existing academic community.  The new Chair will be involved in teaching, undertaking research on Chinese international relations, attracting external funding for research and engagement, publication in high impact journals, and contributing to the domestic and international debate on China’s role in the world.

The successful candidate will be an exceptional researcher with a PhD in a relevant field, and a strong publication record. The individual will have experience of giving advice to policy makers, and engaging in public discussions, broadcast or in-writing, on issues relating to China’s international role.

The successful candidate will work with the Institute Director, Professor Kerry Brown, to strengthen the Institute’s research and public profile. They will have an awareness of the need for impact from their research and be able to engage in the King’s community on matters relating to China. They will also be expected to recruit and mentor doctoral students, and to identify new themes for the institute, and the College’s work, on Chinese International relations. 

The closing date for applications is Friday 15th January 2021.
