Lecturer in Quantitative Criminology – Talent – Hull

  • Hull


These two, full time, permanent posts are available in the School of Criminology, Sociology and Policing at the University of Hull. There is some flexibility in relation to the start date (i.e. between October and April ), depending on candidate availability.

The role

These posts in Quantitative Criminology will contribute to extending the research profile of the School – which saw us rise to th in our REF UOA, and top for impact in the most recent exercise – and to help to support the growing taught postgraduate programme that utilises quantitative techniques and tools. The successful candidates will have ambitious, but deliverable research agenda in the broad area of crime and data science and a willingness to make real-world impacts with their research. Candidates outside of the disciplinary confines of criminology with research interests in computational social science and social data studies are also strongly encouraged to apply. All applicants will be judged on merit alone, but we particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in the university’s workforce.

About you

For these Lecturer posts you will have:

A PhD or equivalent in Criminology, Sociology, data science, or a related field.

A track record of an active, strong and independent research programme in a relevant field of research

Experience in Quantitative/computational methods

A willingness to engage in and a track record in participating in interdisciplinary research

Strong connections with relevant practitioner communities, or clear line of sight to the same. 

A emergent record in attracting funding for research, or demonstrable potential to attract such funding.

An enthusiasm for delivering high quality student-centred degree programmes

An enthusiasm for teaching quantitative methods to undergraduate and postgraduate students

Involvement in impactful research projects.

An enthusiasm for joining our academic community and playing a full role within it.

School of Criminology, Sociology and Policing 

Criminology, Sociology and Policing is a long-established and growing academic School that recruits strongly across its undergraduate, taught postgraduate and postgraduate research programmes.

The School is currently comprised of members of academic staff, who approach criminology from a multitude of disciplinary perspectives, with strategic approval to increase these numbers beyond thirty in the short term. The School delivers a core undergraduate degree in criminology, as well as a suite of ‘with’ programmes, and the Professional Policing Degree now in its second year. 

In the most recent REF exercise, the School was placed in th in the country and in the top ten for impact in its UOA. As part of our growth and strategic positioning we are seeking two Lecturers in Quantitative Criminology to widen our teaching provision into this important and emergent area, and to take advantage of the research opportunities that have been presented with public authorities and others that require a data-driven approach.
