OxPol Editors (Submissions, Blogs Series & Podcasts)

Department of Politics and International Relations; Manor Road Building, Manor Road, Oxford, OX1 3UQ

Grade 5: £25,941 – £30,942 per annum, pro rata

About the role:

An ideal opportunity for DPhil students in Politics and International Relations.

Applications are welcomed for three Editors to join the Department’s OxPol Blog (https://blog.politics.ox.ac.uk/) Editorial Team. The team, line-managed by the DPIR Communications Manager and overseen by an Academic Editor, will work to develop and publish content that promotes research and analysis from the DPIR community as well as other select cutting-edge researchers and practitioners around the world.

The three roles available are:

o OxPol Submissions Editor

o OxPol Blog Series Editor

o OxPol Podcast Editor

These Editors will represent the blog within the Department and the wider University, particularly helping to raise awareness among the academic and graduate community. The role is vital in supporting content generation: this may be by commissioning content, contributing posts, interviews or podcasts, reviewing and editing the contributions of others, and encouraging new bloggers.

Each 15 month fixed term contract is offered on a part time basis working 3.65 hours per week (0.1 fte), ideally starting at the end of January 2022. Editors may occasionally be requested to work in the DPIR Communications Office one half day a month and to attend monthly in-person team meetings.

About you

You will possess specialist knowledge of Politics and International Relations and have an excellent awareness of current affairs, political blogs and podcasts. It is essential that you have excellent written and oral communication skills, an eye-for-detail and the ability to innovate and work effectively with colleagues.

Application Process

Informal enquiries about this role can be addressed to the Communications Manager, Helen Morley at helen.morley@politics.ox.ac.uk

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement and details of two referees as part of your online application. Please state which position would be of interest to you in your supporting statement. Only applications received before midday (UK time) on Tuesday 4 January 2022 can be considered. Please quote reference 153105 on all correspondence.

Interviews are likely to be held before the start of Trinity Term.

Committed to equality and valuing diversity.
