Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

The Department of Sociological Studies has a major international reputation for excellence in research and teaching across Sociology, Social Policy, Social Work and more recently Digital Media, achieving high levels of cross-fertilisation between these disciplines. It is committed to understanding society and social change, and to research and teaching that improves people's lives, especially those of the most vulnerable. We are proud to be one of the top social science research departments in the UK, with a long history of high profile contributions to theory, policy and practice.

This full-time fixed-term post is available from 6 May 2019 until 30 September 2019.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
