Durham University is a globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting – Durham is a university like no other. The Department of Sociology is a supportive and exciting place to work or study Sociology, Criminology or Social Work. We are committed to producing the highest quality theoretically informed research that makes a difference. Currently ranked 1st in the Guardian for Criminology and 8th for Sociology, our ambitions are: to be a world leading Department of Sociology; to deliver distinctive, challenging programmes; and to be fair, inclusive and socially responsible.

The postholder will join our established research theme in Higher Education and Social Inequality (HESI). The HESI research theme brings together a vibrant group of academics and postgraduate researchers from Sociology and allied disciplines across the University. HESI researchers at Durham are leading contributors to the study of socioeconomic, racial and gender disparities in access to and experiences within higher education and their consequences for the reproduction of social inequality. Current areas of specialism include theoretically informed and empirically grounded critiques of the prestige hierarchy of universities; the role of universities in knowledge production and their relationship to socio-political change; inequalities of access to higher education related to socioeconomic background, ethnic origin, school type and geographical location; the impact of exclusionary structures and cultures on working-class, ethnic minority and other ‘non-traditional&! #x2019; s tudents and staff; and inequities in graduate destinations including entry into elite occupations. The HESI group runs research seminars throughout the year and offers undergraduate and postgraduate modules in the sociology of education. We welcome applications from scholars whose work extends or adds to our existing areas of expertise.

We are also expecting that the successful candidate will be able to contribute to core sociological and/or criminological theory, or social research methods teaching. Candidates with expertise in theories of race and racism and intersectionality would be particularly welcomed.
