Du​e to Covid-19 and the worldwide pandemic, we are currently only accepting applications from New Zealand Citizens, New Zealand Residents who are either residing in New Zealand or overseas OR applicants who hold a valid work visa and are currently living in New Zealand.

The School of People, Environment and Planning in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Massey University, invites applications for a two-year fixed-term position in Development Studies at the rank of Lecturer.

We are seeking an experienced, dynamic academic to join our team of international development scholars. You must be passionate about teaching, especially at postgraduate level, have an established track record in research, and have knowledge of the theory and practice of development. Preferably you will also have experience with supervision of postgraduate students.

You will be allocated a share of the Development Studies programme’s administrative responsibilities and be expected to make broader service contributions at College and University level as well as to the community.

Additionally, you should be willing to contribute to the vibrancy of the Development Studies programme, for example, by regularly attending seminars/webinars, hosting visitors, liaising with policy makers and practitioners, and assisting with conference organisation and postgraduate workshops.
