A specialist university with a global reach, our research and teaching span the full breadth of the social sciences. In the last Research Assessment Exercise we had the highest percentage of world-leading research out of any UK university and we have been home to sixteen Nobel prize winners.

For over a hundred years, we have placed engagement with the wider world at the heart of our mission. This continues today with a major recruitment campaign, a chance for 20 of the finest academics to join our global debate and further our academic excellence under our new Director, Professor Craig Calhoun. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about these exceptional opportunities.

Please view the video to learn what our new Director, Professor Craig Calhoun has to say about joining the School.

"LSE was founded in 1895 for the ‘betterment of society’. We hold true to that ideal today. Our research and teaching is both relevant and global."
