The Department of Social and Policy Sciences is currently recruiting world class research leaders who can drive forward innovative and forward-looking policy research. As part of its recruitment strategy, it seeks to appoint a Professor in Criminology in order to expand our research capability and teaching excellence. The Department is internationally known for the exceptional quality of its research and its highly ranked teaching programmes. As Professor, the successful candidate will play a key role shaping the future of criminology research in the Department and across the University, and provide teaching leadership. The candidate will benefit from working in an environment which prioritises interdisciplinary, world-changing and world-leading research.

We are undertaking a UK and international search to recruit an academic leader with an established track record of independent and world-class scholarship in the field of criminology. Candidates must have an outstanding record of publications in top rated international journals, a sustained record of attracting major research grants, significant experience of leading national and international research groups or networks, and auditable evidence of research impact or successful collaborations with non-academic partners. In applications, candidates are asked to provide a brief statement describing how they represent world-class rigour and significance, how their scholarship will enhance the activities of the Department, and in what ways they will provide academic leadership.  

This is an exciting time to join a dynamic and successful Department carrying out cutting edge scholarship that engages with rapidly changing policy challenges. The Department will also launch a new teaching programme in criminology and is looking to recruit in order to strengthen its critical mass in criminology. We welcome applications in any field of criminology that will complement the Department’s policy research strengths. We are therefore looking for expertise in criminology that engages with issues such as poverty and inequality; social justice; criminal justice policy, law and penal practice; racialization; human rights and restorative justice; prevention, prisons and policing; terrorism and security; media; gender, race and ethnicity; and international crime. We are keen to hear from candidates committed to innovative and rigorous methodologies, as well as to interdisciplinary analysis.

Applicants are encouraged to visit our website find out more about the Department’s research and teaching, and its three research centres: the Centre for Analysis of Social Policy, the Centre for Death and Society; the Centre for Development Studies.
