The Department of Sociology seeks to appoint a full-time Lecturer on a substantive basis in the area of Criminology. A ‘Lecturer’ post in the Scottish University system is comparable to a tenure track Assistant Professor post in the North American system. Successful applicants will develop their own impact-oriented independent and potentially collaborative research agendas, contribute to both undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, and participate in the administration of the department and the School of Social Science where necessary.
The Department of Sociology is currently ranked 10th in the UK by the Guardian University Guide and 16th by the Complete University Guide. The University of Aberdeen – one of the UK’s six ancient universities – is consistently ranked in the top 200 globally and is currently ranked in the top 160 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings (2022). Both the Department and the University provide excellent support for scholarship and research activity.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Sociology or a closely related discipline with expertise in criminological areas of inquiry and research. They will have experience of teaching in higher education and have the capacity to contribute to courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Ability to teach quantitative methods would also be desirable. It is expected that the candidate will exhibit the capacity for major contributions to scholarship, to the development of sociological research and teaching on both Sociology and Criminology courses and exhibit a strong potential to acquire future grant income.
They should be self-motivated, flexible and have an ability to engage the interest and enthusiasm of students, inspiring them to learn. There should be clear demonstration of an academic career trajectory and a willingness to make a full contribution to the School’s activities.
The post is offered on a substantive basis, commencing as soon as August 2023.
Salary will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 7 scale (£44,314 - £52,841 per annum), with placement according to qualifications and experience.
