The Sociology Division at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is at the forefront of shaping knowledge, policy and practice. We are a large and growing team of academics with expertise in criminology, sociology, youth studies and youth justice and are committed to putting research at the heart of all that we do. Both RAE 2008 and REF 2014 recognised aspects of our criminology research to be ‘world leading’ and we invest time and resources in working with an array of local, national and international partners to secure significant and lasting impact.
The Division is characterised by a culture of theoretically driven and applied research and a long established reputation for excellence in teaching and learning. We were among the first to provide undergraduate criminology courses over two decades ago and continue to develop new and innovative approaches to teaching and learning both on and beyond campus.
We are looking for a research leader to help us take forward and strengthen our ambitious and exciting research strategy.
You will have a successful track record of grant capture, an internationally recognised publications portfolio and demonstrable experience of developing the talents of research colleagues and students. You will build on our reputation for impactful research through your experience of working in partnership with local, national and international policy makers and practitioners.
To complement our existing research expertise, we are particularly keen to appoint someone with advanced skills in quantitative research.
