Lecturer/ Senior Lecturer in Policing

University of Gloucestershire - School of Natural and Social Sciences

The School of Natural and Social Sciences is seeking to make appointments to three new Lecturer / Senior Lecturer posts that will sit within our Social Sciences subject community.  These posts are an investment to support growth in teaching and research within Criminology, Sociology and Policing.  For details of the posts in Criminology and Sociology, see the list of current vacancies on the University website.

Our BSc (Hons) Policing will take its second intake in September 2018 and is attracting good student numbers.  We are preparing to validate a BSc (Hons) Professional Policing that will be designed to meet the curriculum requirements specified by the College of Policing.  We would expect the post-holder to contribute to the teaching and development of these courses plus any other programmes that we may develop to meet the needs of the Police Education and Qualifications Framework.

The post-holder will also have the opportunity, dependent on their subject expertise, to contribute to other programmes within the School such as BSc (Hons) Criminology, BA (Hons) Sociology, BSc (Hons) Psychology, MSc Criminology, PgCert Public Protection, and MSc Forensic Psychology. 

We are seeking a colleague who has a background working within a relevant professional context, and are particularly interested in candidates with operational policing experience and / or experience of delivering the Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP). 

Applicants should also have postgraduate-level experience of applied research and be able, in their application, to outline a personal development plan for research relevant to evidence-based policing.

Based at our attractive campus in Cheltenham, we offer a welcoming and positive working environment. Information on the School of Natural and Social Sciences is available in a separate document. 

This position is available for a start in August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.
