Help us to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and families.

Social Sciences at Nottingham Trent University is more than an academic pursuit.

Our team is committed to shaping knowledge, policy and practice through highly rated courses and an outstanding reputation for theoretically informed, applied research.

You’ll work with academics from a range of different disciplines and will develop relationships with a number of external stakeholders (including children and young people).

With a PhD (or equivalent) in a social sciences discipline and an emerging profile in research with children, young people and/or families, you’ll benefit from joining a thriving academic community with unrivalled opportunities for your career development.
