Do you have experience in teaching and research in criminology, law or a relevant social science discipline?

Do you have a passion for teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students?

We are seeking a high calibre individual who is able to carry forward the vision of the School of Law with a strong teaching and research profile.

You will deliver teaching in undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules in appropriate subject areas, as well as supervising dissertations and supervising or co-supervising PhD candidates. We are particularly interested in candidates who are able to teach in one or more of the following areas but will also consider applications from individuals with backgrounds in other relevant areas: criminal law, law of evidence, penology. You will also be expected to undertake a normal load of administrative duties within the School and work within the context of University values and policies, which are designed to promote dignity, diversity and inclusiveness.

With a background in either law, criminology/criminal justice or a relevant social science discipline you will be able to contribute to the international profile and standing of the School’s Centre for Criminal Justice Studies by demonstrating evidence of excellence in teaching and a capacity to produce research of internationally excellent quality and contributing to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in criminal justice; maintaining a strong research and publication record, and enhancing the School’s research activities and research culture.

We particularly welcome female applicants and black and minority ethnic applicants, as they are under-represented within the Law School at this level.

As part of your application, please could you submit copies of your three strongest publications?

These should represent your best work in terms of originality, significance and rigour and both should be published since January 2014. One could be a draft that has been submitted or is close to submission.
