The Department of Sociology at Durham was formed in 1964 - initially as a Department of Social Theory and Institutions. We currently deliver two successful undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Criminology; our criminology programme is 1st in the UK in the Times and Sunday Times Good University guide 2024. We also run a professional masters programme in Social Work (Durham was Social Work University of the Year in 2022), a new MSc Sociology and an MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice. We also support the core delivery of the Faculty’s ESRC Research Methods Training.

Sociology at Durham is continuing an ambitious programme of investment to consolidate and expand its research capacity in its overarching research themes. Information about all research themes can be found here.

The postholder will join our established research theme in Violence and Abuse. This research theme is a core pillar of the work of the multi-disciplinary Durham Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA) and consists of a large group of scholars at different levels and a vibrant group of postgraduate researchers researching gender, violence and abuse. We also offer undergraduate and postgraduate modules on violence and abuse which are popular with students registered on a range of different degrees. Our current areas of specialism include responses to people who use violence and abuse, policing violence and abuse, violence and abuse in higher education, men’s involvement in ending violence and abuse, Black and Minoritised victims' experiences of violence and abuse, and LGBT+ experiences of violence and abuse. We are equally interested in extending these areas or adding new areas of expertise to our team but we’re especially interested in application! s from me n and/or those with international expertise/ perspectives.

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. We have been involved with a decolonising project focussing on our curricula and more recently we are considering the internationalisation of our programmes. Candidates with expertise in theories of race and racism and intersectionality would be particularly welcomed.
