We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

We are seeking to appoint a 12-month fixed-term Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Sociology of Sport. You will deliver undergraduate modules, supervise undergraduate projects and contribute to the employability potential of our students.  An ability to teach the level 4 module ‘Sport, Culture and Society’ would be an advantage, but there is flexibility.

You will be a great communicator and team player, making a significant contribution to the Department’s learning and teaching, applied research and practice and academic enterprise in Sociology of Sport. You should hold or be in the latter stages of a postgraduate degree, ideally a PhD. The post-holder will be joining sport and exercise scientists and social scientists in the Sport, Health and Performance Enhancement (SHAPE) research group.  

Nottingham Trent University has a long and established history for delivering sport related courses.  The Department of Sport Science currently comprises ~55 academic staff, ~45 PhD students and large undergraduate and MRes cohorts.  Recent investment into the Department has enhanced our physical resources, research environment and the student learning experience. We offer a friendly, supportive environment of excellence and invite you to join us. 

If you have any specific queries in relation to this position, please contact Dr Graham Sharpe, Interim Head of Department of Sports Science, via email

NTU prides itself on being an inclusive employer. We value and celebrate equality in opportunities, and we welcome applications from people who reflect the diversity of our communities.

We’re proud of how far we’ve come. With a shared vision, we are a community of more than 4,000 colleagues, all committed to our goal of becoming ‘the university of the future’. Do you have the passion to help us to go even further?
