specialist expertise ; or, if appropriate, take responsibility for an
existing specialist course in Cultural Constructions of the Body.

September 2012 and have an emerging record of research publications. The
successful candidate will be joining the largest research and teaching
unit of its kind in Europe, and an interdisciplinary team of gender
specialists. The LSE Fellow will play a full role in our teaching and
research activities, and take an appropriate share of the administrative
and pastoral work.
