About You

You will be a committed and engaging educator in the field of criminology, sociology or social policy and will contribute to the development of our undergraduate programmes.

You will have the expertise to strengthen our teaching profile and contribute to our intellectual community. You will have experience of teaching in Higher Education and a doctorate or equivalent qualifications and experience in an aligned social science discipline is essential.

As a Teaching Fellow, you will teach at an undergraduate and postgraduate level. Whether developing your own teaching approaches, acting as supervisor to your students or contributing to the effective administration of our department, you will enjoy scope to innovate and make a significant impact.
