Situated in the heart of a beautiful and historic city, the University of Lincoln has built an international reputation for the quality of its teaching and research. The School of Social and Political Sciences has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in the UK. This is an exciting time to be joining our student-focused and research-active School in further developing our place as a leading centre for studying and engaging with the range of disciplines in the School (criminology, sociology, social policy, politics, international relations and gender studies). Criminology at Lincoln is ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction in the Guardian University Guide 2023 (out of 81 ranking institutions). We are particularly proud of our success in the recent REF, which judged 95% of our research outputs in social policy and social work (to which criminology was returned) as either world leading or internationally excellent. This resulted in us ranking 13th by grade point average (GPA) within social policy and social work.

We are currently seeking to recruit a lecturer / senior lecturer in criminology to support the delivery of teaching and research across the School. We are seeking candidates who:

  • Have a strong academic profile related to any area of criminology
  • Will engage in research that will complement existing strengths within the School
  • Are excellent communicators who will complement the School's existing teaching
  • Are able to support teaching in criminology specific modules and across wider interdisciplinary curricula within the School
  • Have an interest in and proven ability to teach one or more of prisons, probation, criminal justice, applied criminology, criminological theory and research methods
  • Will work collaboratively with other members of staff within the School as well as external stakeholders
  • For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Prof Abigail Powell, Acting Head of School - apowell@lincoln.ac.uk
