Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary courses have helped make us one of the fastest growing Universities in the U.K. over recent years.

Now we are building on that achievement, with a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region.

We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset and investing in enabling this expertise to thrive.

All of this takes place at the heart of beautiful York, recently named by the Sunday Times as the best U.K. city to grow up in because of the quality of education, culture and community spirit that we form part of!

We are currently recruiting for a Lecturer in Criminology and Police Studies to work within our School of Psychological & Social Sciences.

The School works with Humberside Police to provide a number of programmes in policing, including Degree Apprenticeships, a Degree Holder Entry Programme and a Pre-Join Professional Policing Degree. We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Lecturer with a background in criminology who can demonstrate a strong interest in UK policing and who can make a significant contribution across the School’s policing programmes. Experience of developing teaching and assessment strategies for modules would be an advantage.
