*Job Reference Number:*UOS022019

*Department:* Department of Sociological Studies *

*Faculty:*Social Sciences

The Department of Sociological Studies has a major international reputation for excellence in research and teaching across Digital Media, Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work, achieving high levels of cross-fertilisation between these disciplines. It is committed to understanding society and social change, and to research and teaching that improves people's lives, especially those of the most vulnerable. We are proud to be one of the top social science research departments in the UK, with a long history of high profile contributions to theory, policy and practice.

Applications are very welcome from all fields of sociology, and are particularly encouraged from areas that ensure that the Department continues to be at the cutting edge of scholarship relating to contemporary sociological concerns. In this context, specialism in any of the following would be of especial but not exclusive interest: sociologies of crime, environment, gender, culture, consumption and materialities.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding international track record as a scholar, including publications in high ranked international journals. You will hold a PhD in a relevant discipline and be able to provide research leadership, attract external funding and research students to the Department.   You will be expected to represent the Department in the wider University and promote and represent the University and the discipline nationally and internationally. The successful candidate will be expected to fully contribute to research, teaching and administration within the Department.
