Lecturer/Associate Professor/Professor in Criminology

These are exciting times for Criminology at Southampton. Our new suite of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in Criminology is attracting exceptional numbers of well qualified students. Building on our success in REF2014 we are now seeking to recruit a number of inspiring and enthusiastic Criminologists to join our friendly, hard-working team in the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology. In addition to appointing a Lecturer, we are particularly keen to recruit well regarded, experienced Criminology scholars at Associate Professor and Professor level. The new appointments will further develop the curriculum that we offer our undergraduate and postgraduate students, enhance our excellent research reputation, and share in the strategic development of and continuing investment in Criminology as central to Social Sciences at Southampton. We welcome applications from all areas of Criminology but especially encourage those with an outstanding track record in Cybercrime/Cybersecurity. We are also keen to appoint in the fields of policing, criminal justice, crime and gender, criminological/forensic psychology, demographic criminology and international/comparative research.

You will have the expertise and experience to strengthen our international research profile and contribute to our intellectual community, including the activities and profile of our Institute of Criminal Justice Research, which draws together colleagues from across the University in an active and flourishing academic environment for research activity. You will hold a doctoral degree in Criminology (or a related field), have relevant experience of teaching in Higher Education, and be able to evidence emerging strengths in research and publication (Lecturer), a well-established research track-record and reputation for research (Associate Professor), or a track-record of internationally recognised research and leadership (Professor). You will be part of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences which brings together a unique range of disciplines and is committed to tackling the world’s biggest challenges through interdisciplinary research.

Be part of the dynamic development of Criminology at the University of Southampton, an institution in the top 1% of world Universities and one of the UK’s top 15 research–intensive universities.
