The Role

This is a career-defining opportunity within the Department of Criminology and Sociology.  The Department has an outstanding record for postgraduate and undergraduate teaching, and engaging in research of international excellence.  You’ll join a close-knit group of academics who are behind a varied programme of research-led teaching, workshops, seminars and forward-thinking studies that place inclusivity at the heart of the learning and teaching experience.

You will plan, deliver and assess a range of modules on the criminology and forensic psychology programmes, using a variety of technologies and approaches to deliver a vibrant education to your students that can be translated into real-world skills. You will also provide pastoral support to students and follow their progress as they move through the degree programme.

Research is, naturally, a key part of our make-up and you’ll supervise research students and undertake your own research challenges, seeing projects through their entire lifecycle – from developing proposals to producing outputs ripe for publication. Our recent research projects have been in the areas of prisoner education and resettlement; sexual violence, human trafficking and transphobic hate crime, to name a few. You will also be involved in the work of the Centre for Research on Communities, Identity and Difference (CResCID), and contribute to the overall research environment of the School.

The Person

You’ll be near completing or hold a doctorate in criminology, investigative psychology or a related discipline. (Exceptionally, we will consider candidates with a relevant postgraduate professional qualification and extensive practitioner experience.)  You will bring with you a recognised teaching or learning qualification or complete UKPSF recognition before the end of your probation period.

You will be passionate about criminology and investigative psychology, keen to work across disciplines and to develop our programmes.   Ideally, you will be able to engage students in quantitative methods.

The Faculty

The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences offers a range of courses in politics, economics, human rights, international relations, law, psychology and criminology. Globally admired for their human rights, religion and immigration expertise, staff are genuinely enterprising and international in their approach and flexible in meeting the evolving demands of the wider world.
