The Department of Social and Policy Sciences wishes to recruit a Lecturer in Criminology. The Department is a world class centre for research and teaching excellence, committed to interdisciplinary and impactful research.
We are looking to recruit an individual who will make a significant contribution to research and teaching capacity in criminology at Bath. The successful candidate will have a track record, commensurate with career stage, of outstanding research, and will be encouraged to publish in top rated international journals, promote knowledge exchange, sustain a leading research programme, and be active in submitting applications for external funding. The candidate will also be committed to excellence in learning, teaching and the student experience; and make contributions to future pedagogical developments on campus or by distance/blended learning.
We encourage applications from scholars with research interests in any subfield of criminology that improves our existing portfolio, including but not limited to crime, policing, race and racism, theoretical criminology, and global criminology. Academics in the department cross a number of subject areas but are all committed to high-quality and independent research that contributes to public and policy understanding and debate. Applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to visit the Department’s website.
The post is offered on a full-time basis (36.5 hours/week).
Applications must include an academic CV as well as a cover letter demonstrating how experience and expertise meets the criteria set out in the person specification.
