 The School of Psychological & Social Sciences at York St John University is a vibrant and ambitious academic unit based on a magnificent campus in the heart of York. The School’s burgeoning national and international research profile, excellent teaching and learning, and welcoming and inclusive ethos supports an exceptional student experience.

Central to our ambition is an absolute commitment to academic excellence. Over a third of our research is already world leading or internationally excellent and we are going further and faster to enhance this, with collaborative opportunities to do work that makes a real world impact and promotes social justice.

We have also created the conditions for quality teaching to thrive. We are third in the UK for the proportion of our academics with formal teaching qualifications, we are a consistent Stonewall Top 100 employer and we hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice. Our strength lies in our community: renowned for our friendly, supportive environment we will nurture your talent so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

We are seeking to appoint two enthusiastic lecturers on a 0.5 basis to contribute to our Police Studies provision and to assist in the development of a degree apprenticeship for Policing and a pre-service Policing degree, in line with the College of Policing curriculum.

Preferred candidates will have recent experience of policing within a UK force, have PIP level 1 and be familiar with the PEACE package for interviewing witnesses and suspects.  It will also be an advantage to have a post-graduate qualification in a relevant social science, teaching experience within HE, and a willingness to develop research in line with the Schools interests.  Applicants with interest and expertise in Community Policing, Youth and Crime, Interviewing or Public Safety are particularly encouraged to apply.
