The School of Sociology and Social Policy is a vibrant, diverse and exciting

social policy, and social work.
As the School enters a period of growth, building on the rapid expansion of
criminology since 2014, we are looking for an enthusiastic senior scholar to
join our growing team. The successful applicant will be expected to make a
significant contribution to research, teaching and senior leadership in the
School. This will include responsibilities within the high-quality education
we provide; securing external research funding; high-quality publications and
other scholarly activities; and contributing high-quality outputs to future
assessments of research excellence. This role will involve leadership and
management across the spheres of education and student experiences, research
and knowledge exchange and academic administration. Teaching on our very
popular undergraduate programmes will be balanced with opportunities to play a
leading part in the development of postgraduate teaching and research.
We welcome applications from candidates with interests in any area of
criminology. Applications are encouraged from those scholars with an evidenced
and successful commitment to high quality research, a strong background in
delivering and managing educational programmes at postgraduate and
undergraduate level, along with significant experience of academic
administration. Roles at this level will have a significant impact on the
direction, strategy, objectives, and results of the University by influencing
and shaping the available resources as appropriate to meet the current and
future needs of the University, the Faculty of Social Sciences and the School.
We welcome applicants working in any field of criminology and are keen to
develop research and teaching in the following areas: (1) border
criminology; (2) feminist criminology; (3) prison health and governance;
(4) race and ethnicity; (5) restorative justice; (6) southern, Asian and
postcolonial criminology; (7) queer criminology; and (8) victimology.
This is a permanent post for a full-time academic who is able and willing to
take on a senior leadership role in research and teaching within the
criminology team. People from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds
are encouraged to apply as the School is determined to provide an inclusive
environment for staff and students.
