Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Criminology

Goldsmiths, University of London

(1FTE, permanent post)

Grade 7 (Lecturer A) £37,393 - £41,705 per annum - Grade 8 (Lecturer B) £44,084 - £50,594

Following the development of a new BA Criminology within the department, Sociology at Goldsmiths is seeking to recruit a lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Sociology with specialism in criminology and research interests in a complementary field to those in the Department. The post is full time (teaching and research contract).

The role will be principally to teach on the BA Criminology (http://www.gold.ac.uk/ug/ba-criminology/) and BA Sociology with Criminology, including the supervision of dissertations, but will also require the ability to teach on core modules for all undergraduate students studying in the department. This will involve potentially helping on teaching research methods and/or contemporary issues in social thought.

We encourage applications from those who will be able to teach on core modules covering the Sociology of Crime & Deviance, the Criminal Justice System and/or Victims. You will adopt a critical cultural approach and be able to present an outline of a term-long optional module in the area of your research specialism at interview.

You will join one of the of the largest and most innovative Sociology Departments in the UK offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an institution specialising in the social sciences, arts and humanities. You will be expected to participate fully in departmental life, both our teaching and research.

You will have a PhD, teaching experience, and appropriate demonstrable research expertise.

All applicants are invited to submit a covering letter, foregrounding their research and teaching expertise and their suitability for the job, plus a curriculum vitae.

We are hoping to appoint to this post for a start in May 2018.

No agencies please.
