The Sociology subject group is based within the Department of Psychology, Sociology and Politics and a key feature of our courses is based on the application of theoretical and methodological approaches to the real world. We teach theory and methods in an applied context rather than as sets of abstract models and concepts. Our approach is designed to encourage students to learn Sociology by doing it, to understand how Sociology helps us to understand the features, issues and possible futures of our increasingly globalised social world.

As a Lecturer in Sociology you will contribute to excellent research and teaching within the Department, in particular to our vibrant portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate awards, which are designed to address contemporary issues in social science within areas such as health, education and the workplace. These include the BA Sociology award, combined degrees within the department and wider faculty (BA Applied Social Science and BA Criminology and Sociology), MSc Public Health and MRes Social Science.

As such, you must have well developed and current knowledge and understanding of public health, sociology of health, health research, and health policy, with a particular emphasis on explanations of health as socially determined. You will also have evidence of a contribution to knowledge in the field of the sociology of health and public health (i.e. publications in peer reviewed journals). A PhD (or close to completion of a PhD) in the sociology of health is also essential.
