INLOGOV is entering an exciting phase of development.
Building on our rich history of research addressing the institutional and political life of local government and public management, our research now reaches beyond these traditional structures and actors to address governance, democracy, leadership, participation, policy-making and service delivery at and across multiple scales and issues. This month’s REF results showed over 80% of our research is world-leading or internationally excellent.
We have simplified and enhanced our teaching programmes, delivering an exciting range of postgraduate degree programmes, with a thriving doctoral research community. Our postgraduate programmes include a full-time on-campus Public Management MSc, an on-line Master of Public Administration, a blended Executive Apprenticeship in Public Leadership and Management, MOOCs and micro-credentials, and postgraduate research degrees.
With over 50 years of experience working with local and (inter)national governments and the public sector, INLOGOV creates new thinking with public practitioners and is the leading UK centre for the study of public management, policy and governance.
INLOGOV is part of the School of Government, one of the largest in the United Kingdom – home to more than 80 full-time academic staff, more than 1,200 undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, and more than 70 doctoral researchers. The School is intellectually vibrant with an excellent record in both research and teaching.
We are therefore looking for new colleagues who can undertake pioneering research, develop exciting and intellectually stimulating teaching, and develop significant impact in local government. In return, INLOGOV provides a supportive and collegial environment, enabling colleagues to engage internationally, strengthen networks and deliver excellent teaching, research and impact. We also have a lovely campus in one of the youngest, most diverse and exciting cities in the country.
