We seek outstanding teachers and researchers to join our dynamic and multidisciplinary team. Applicants should possess the broad range of skills needed to teach effectively and as well as core teaching within our existing programmes should be able to contribute to and develop the Department’s teaching portfolio at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, including the supervision of doctoral students and the development of specialist options within the Department to reflect specific areas of expertise. We also expect colleagues to contribute to the effective administration of the Department taking on key leadership roles, where appropriate. 

We have three posts on offer and each of the positions include teaching undergraduate core subjects. Both the sociology and criminology and psychology posts will require colleagues who have particular expertise in teaching quantitative research methods. Candidates with additional experience of delivering and administering distance learning programmes will be particularly welcome.
