Leeds Trinity University is a successful University community which offers a high quality learning experience to its students.  Applications are invited for the following post:
Starting salary in the range £32,004 to £46,924 per annum, ideally for a September 2017 start.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, collaborative, high performing academic member of staff in Criminology who can also contribute to our Sociology programme.  Leeds Trinity University is a modern university with an emerging research culture.  The scale of the institution provides for an extremely supportive environment and facilitates research across discipline boundaries.  The University is well resourced and has a significant reputation for high quality teaching and student experience. 
We have expanded our portfolio of undergraduate provision to include Criminology and are also keen to develop our research and knowledge exchange activity in this area of work. We are now seeking an ambitious and enthusiastic member of staff to join us in 2017 and help us deliver our Strategic Plan by contributing high quality teaching and research and/or knowledge exchange activity.
You will contribute to our new undergraduate programmes in Criminology and Sociology, both of which started their first cohort of students this academic year.  The ability to teach core areas of study in Criminology and Sociology across all levels is essential. The ability to contribute to either Qualitative or Quantitative Research Methods at undergraduate and post-graduate level is also desirable.  The ideal candidate will also bring links and external contacts to help facilitate the development of our research and knowledge exchange portfolios, and demonstrate potential for income generation for research and/or knowledge exchange. 
We welcome applications from candidates who have a PhD in Criminology, Sociology, or a closely related area of study, or the equivalent in professional expertise and experience in the field of Criminology or Sociology. Applicants should be research active with a track record of publications commensurate with their career stage and/or be able to offer attractive knowledge exchange activities to the profession.  The ability to work as an effective team member, contributing to the provision of high quality teaching across undergraduate and post-graduate levels is essential.  
This post will provide an ideal opportunity for a Criminologist to support the further development of this new area of provision at Leeds Trinity University, contributing to teaching on our new programmes in Criminology, research activity, postgraduate studies and knowledge exchange.  We offer an excellent range of benefits including generous holiday entitlements, staff development opportunities and a pension scheme.
