We are seeking to recruit a Professorial Fellow in Social Policy and/or Sociology to join the recently established Healthy Lifespan Institute (HELSI), a pan-University Institute covering all five Faculties.
Prospective candidates should have an excellent research profile and clear potential as a future academic leader, with expertise in one or more of ageing, the life course, inequality and intersectionality, the social/commercial determinants of health, and public health, with a track-record of attracting research funding and publishing high quality outputs. The successful candidate would be awarded a professorial contract and attached to HELSI. You would have clear targets for advancing the HELSI research mission and leadership development over a five-year period. At the end of that period, following the achievement of your initial research plans, you would progress to a full Professorial position within the Department of Sociological Studies, while remaining a key member of the leadership team of the Healthy Lifespan Institute.
During your first five years, you would focus almost exclusively on developing your research programme within the context of HELSI, pursuing opportunities for high profile external grants, producing an array of high-quality publications, supporting early career researchers, and exploring opportunities for interdisciplinary partnership building and knowledge exchange within HELSI and externally, while demonstrating the impact of your research.
Both HELSI and the Department of Sociological Studies are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we particularly welcome applications from currently under-represented groups, including candidates who are from black, Asian and minoritised ethnic and refugee backgrounds; who are LGBTQ+; who are living with disabilities.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
