The Department of Social Sciences is a vibrant, large team consisting of International Relations and Politics, Sociology, and Criminology and Policing. With over 80 members of staff across the programmes, staff teach over 2000 students on more than ten programmes. Criminology and Policing is the biggest team in the Department and one of the biggest criminology teams in the country with such renown scholars as Professor Pam Davies, incoming President of the British Society of Criminology. All criminology staff contributed to the Research and Excellence Framework 2021 submission to Social Work and Social Policy (UoA 20), which included three Impact Case Studies from criminology. Staff consistently are awarded research funds from the Economic and Social Research Council (i.e., Professor Mike Rowe’s Visible Policing project) and other funding bodies. The Department is home to the Centre for Crime and Policing and is seeking to expand its research clusters to new areas of emerging excellence from new colleagues.
We are recruiting to a variety of criminology and policing posts here at Northumbria University and are seeking ambitious, collegiate, colleagues to join our existing team of excellent scholars in the Department of Social Sciences.
You will be a research-active member of our criminology and policing team and your own interests will complement and extend the broad, yet exciting and ever-growing, range of criminological and policing research we are engaged in. Your scholarship will primarily align with the work conducted within the Centre for Crime and Policing and/or The Northern Hub for Veterans and Military Families Research strand on Criminal Justice which embraces many issues including homelessness, mental health and suicide. In addition, you will be able to connect with one of our many research focussed networks (e.g., Gender, Violence and Abuse [GVARN]).
Your own area of research specialism will add to our portfolio of criminology and policing sub-fields. We are keen to recruit to an open list of research and teaching interests in order to attract those whose research is at the cutting edge of theory, research, policy, and practice. You will be authoritative about the key debates, policies and pedagogical practices affecting our subject areas. There is an expanding and richly diverse research methodology in our disciplines, and we would be keen to attract those who can demonstrate this in the use, and teaching, of quantitative methodologies in particular. Your research will be steered towards effecting social change and influencing the advancement of criminology and policing and will align with your innovative teaching (face-to-face, online live, pre-recorded and blended) at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, together with professional/degree apprenticeship offers and other professional courses.
