The School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lincoln is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Criminology to add to our existing strengths in teaching, research, and external engagement.

The School of Social and Political Sciences is an expanding department within a university that has established a reputation as one of the most dynamic and fastest growing in the UK. This is an exciting time to be joining our student-focused and research-active School in further developing our place as a leading centre for studying and engaging with the range of areas that make up Criminology as a discipline.

The successful candidate will be able to teach in their area of specialism within the field of criminology as well as being able to teach core elements of the criminology curriculum. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in race and justice, state crime, human rights, critical criminology, zemiological approaches to harm and victimisation, and cognate areas.

Alongside teaching, staff are expected to conduct high quality research and/or engage externally, for example in professional practice and scholarly activity. In addition, the role —particularly at Senior Lecturer level— includes offering leadership in aspects of the School's work, for example, around portfolio development and programme leadership.

The successful candidate will seek to develop their own and the School's profile, and to enrich the academic environment and profile of the School of Social and Political Sciences, and of the College of Social Science of which it forms a part.
