Academic careers


Start your job search now:


Join LSE and you’ll be working alongside the academic leaders of your generation, in a world-leading university that places a premium on career development and reward.

We’re looking for people who excel in their field, who want to engage with the wider world and inspire our students.

Specialists in the social sciences, we rate highly in our field, most recently named second in the world in one global league table. How do our peers see us? In 2014, the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings rated us the fourth highest UK University (and one of only ten UK institutions in the top 100).

Which is nice. But we’re mainly concerned with pursuing world-class research and teaching, and engaging with global issues. We’d like more like-minded individuals to join us and realise their academic ambitions.

You’ll find us a fair employer that takes diversity and professional development seriously. Your colleagues will be global leaders in social science. We work towards academic excellence and ‘the betterment of society’.

From the heart of London, you’ll find yourself joining the global debate.

Three-tier academic structure:

LSE introduced a New Academic Career structure (NAC) in order to improve the recruitment, mentoring, review and pay of career academics. See Departments and roles for details.
