War Studies is one of the largest working groups within the professional association, with over 200 members dedicated to the study of war, peace, and security from all approaches.

As part of this effort, the War Studies Working Group is looking to recruit two Postgraduate Representatives to lead on public outreach, impact, and event organisation. Working alongside the War Studies conveners, the successful applicant will be provided with the support and guidance needed to grow their transferable skills in organisational management and academic leadership. The positions will be held for a two-year term.

  • You should be looking to grow your network in the IR and War Studies community
  • You are seeking leadership experience and looking to obtain transferable skills and organisational experience
  • You should be a self-starter who is passionate about outreach, impact, and public engagement.
