Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Forensic Criminology/Forensic Psychology

Middlesex University - Department of Criminology and Sociology

The Department of Criminology and Sociology at Middlesex University is experiencing significant growth and development, with expanding undergraduate and graduate programmes, and an ambitious research and engagement agenda. This involves strengthening priority areas; curriculum redesign to support student learning, engagement and employability; deepening our research culture and capabilities; and an ambitious strategy of national and international partnership and engagement.

As a critical part of this process, the Department is looking to make an appointment to strengthen its teaching and research capability in the area of Forensic Criminology/Forensic Psychology.

The post will be filled by a person able to undertake teaching, research and knowledge exchange in the area of psychological criminology, and able to engage with substantive areas such as forensic psychology, psychology and offender management, psycho-legal decision making, and how psychology informs our understanding of gangs, crime control, victimisation, policing, and prisoner welfare.

The successful candidate will be involved in teaching across the criminology programme, but will play a key role in strengthening the ‘Criminology with Psychology’ undergraduate programme and the MSc in Criminology with Forensic Psychology.

The successful candidate will be focused on the intersections between criminology and psychology, particularly, but not exclusively, forensic psychology. S/he will either be a psychologist with a focus on crime and offending, or a criminologist specialising in psychological issues. Expertise in experimental psychology and quantitative methods relating to criminal offenders, ‘at risk’ youth, or other areas would be an advantage.
