Closing Date:   Tuesday 15 August 2017
Interview Date:   Friday 25 August 2017
Reference:  A1904

Lancaster University Law School is a vibrant school that combines the disciplines of Law and Criminology. Having doubled in size in four years, the School is continuing to increase its staffing and is currently seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Criminology.  We are looking to appoint a scholar who is developing a strong national reputation in a relevant research area, ideally prisons. Holding a PhD, you will ideally have some relevant teaching experience in Criminology.

You will be expected to teach on appropriate undergraduate and postgraduate courses and to supervise doctoral students in an appropriate area. You will be given research support, including mentoring and development opportunities.  You will join the Centre for Crime, Law and Justice, a specialist research centre based in the School and help contribute to its mission.

The Law School has a reputation for producing excellent research; REF2014 saw us significantly increasing our GPA and we were ranked 11th in the country in the power rankings. We intend to further improve our results in the next REF and this post will assist us with that aim.

This is a fixed term, full-time post for 3 years.

Informal enquiries are welcomed and should be made to Professor Alisdair A. Gillespie, Head of Lancaster University Law School. Tel: 01524 593706. Email:
