Lecturer in Crime/Criminal Justice (Grade 7)

Lancaster University Law School is a vibrant school that combines the disciplines of Law and Criminology. Having doubled in size in four years, the School is looking to expand its activities even further. We seek a Lecturer in Law to contribute across the School's core law modules. While we welcome applications from candidates with expertise in law generally framed, an ability to deliver teaching in the areas of crime, criminal justice, and evidence would be desirable. The post will be offered on either a Teaching & Research or Teaching & Scholarship basis.

The Law School is consistently ranked in the top 20 in the UK league tables and is currently placed 55th in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. The Law School has a vibrant teaching and research culture, with interdisciplinary collaborations and a tailored programme of staff mentoring and support.

You will contribute to the Department's undergraduate and postgraduate level modules as required and you will be expected to supervise undergraduate and postgraduate students. You will also take on administrative duties as requested by the Head of Department.

For the Research & Teaching role you will pursue impactful research and deliver publications of a high quality and at a level appropriate for a strong submission to the next Research Excellence Framework. For the Scholarship & Teaching role you will be required to develop a programme of personal scholarship in your chosen field of study, applying this to your teaching and leadership activities.

The Law School has over 50 academic members of staff and is committed to having a positive impact on people's lives as well as academic excellence – over 80% of the department's research was rated as being internationally excellent or world leading in the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise. The Law School is also committed to innovation and excellence in teaching, learning and assessment and has recently developed a number of employability modules that has seen us being ranked #1 in the Times Good University Guide for employability.

Staff in the School continue to benefit from Lancaster's strong commitment at institutional and School level to the provision of an environment that encourages and supports research and scholarship. The Law School is proud of its friendly, co-operative ethos that promotes collaborative working and the sharing of research and teaching experiences. Both research and scholarship are supported through a structured staff development programme, the allocation of a mentor and ongoing sabbatical leave (for both research and scholarship staff).
