The Department

The Department of Sociology at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the fixed term role of Lecturer in Criminology. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Criminology and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants who are experienced teachers of theory and methods with an active research profile clearly aligned with one of our research themes.

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, a professional masters programme in Social Work (to which the post holder will actively contribute), 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:

Communities and Social Justice

Criminal Justice, Social Harm and Inequalities

Health and Social Theory

Higher Education and Social Inequalities

Violence and Abuse

Information about all research themes can be found . We would particularly welcome applications from candidates whose work intersects with Criminal Justice, Social Harm and Inequalities or Violence and Abuse.
