The Department of Social Anthropology, which is part of the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies, is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Energy Ethics.  


We are looking for a scholar with an international research reputation in the anthropology of energy and a commitment to deliver high quality teaching within the discipline of Social Anthropology, and the broader fields of interdisciplinary energy research, finance, and policy. Working with colleagues across all Faculties of the University, the successful candidate will lead and deliver the new MSc in Energy Ethics and take on the Deputy Director role of the Centre for Energy Ethics, as well as contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and strengthen research interests in the Department.  


Candidates should hold a PhD in a cognate discipline. Excellent team building skills, a passion for teaching, and an interest in promoting inclusive and creative knowledge exchange are essential. You should also have some familiarity with attracting external research funding from research councils or other sources.

Applications are particularly welcome from people of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, and/or with protected characteristics who are under-represented in academic posts at the University.  


Equality, diversity, and inclusion are at the heart of the St Andrews experience. We strive to create a fair and inclusive culture demonstrated through our commitment to diversity awards (Athena SWAN, Carer Positive, LGBT Charter, Race Charters, and Stonewall). We celebrate diversity by promoting profiles of BAME, LGBTIQ+ staff and supporting networks including the Staff BAME Network, Staff with Disabilities Network, Staff LGBTIQ+ Network, and the Staff Parents & Carers Network.
