The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law


This is a full-time permanent position currently based at the Singleton Campus, with plans to relocate to the Bay Campus in 2020/21. To support the continued growth of our Criminology department we are looking to appoint a Lecturer to compliment the Department’s distinguished research and teaching portfolio.

Criminology at the School of Law:

The Criminology Department is going from strength-to-strength and enjoys a position as one of the best ranked in the UK:

  • Criminology is ranked 3rd in the UK (Guardian 2019)
  • Criminology is ranked 4th in the UK (Times & Sunday Times 2019)

As a result of the department’s continued success, student numbers are ever-increasing, and due to the quality of teaching on offer, the department recruits students of a consistently high standard.

Our Criminology academics are research-focussed and have expertise in various areas, which include: Cybercrime and Terrorism, Neurocriminology and Bioethics, Probation and Offender Management Services, Sentencing and Courts, Sex Work and Youth Justice.

The Criminology department is also home to several leading research groups, including: the Centre for Criminal Justice and Criminology, and the Cyber Threats Intelligence Centre (CyTIC).

There is a strong focus on employability in the department, with specific skills embedded throughout the degrees on offer. Criminology at Swansea is also progressive and contemporary, with alternative assessments being used over exams where possible, focussing on other areas, such as writing policy or vlogs and blogs for assessment.

The department continues to develop, this year launching an all-new MA in Cyber Crime and Terrorism, which looks at understanding the constantly changing nature of online crimes and criminal behaviour, opening up a range of exciting career opportunities. Despite continuing to operate at the cutting-edge of academia, the department remains a grounded and inclusive place to work, with a friendly and thriving academic environment.
