The University of Reading School of Law wishes to appoint an outstanding Associate Professor in Criminal Law, Criminal Justice and/or Criminology to further enhance our academic faculty. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic community with a global outlook and a focus on academic excellence (in the latest Research Excellence Framework we doubled our percentage of 4* outputs and 99% of our research was judged to be world leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised).
We are seeking to appoint a candidate of internationally recognised research excellence who can provide research leadership and also contribute to teaching, administration and global engagement. The School welcomes applicants with an excellent record of research in Criminal Law, Criminal Justice and/or Criminology. All relevant research specialisms considered but specialist knowledge of youth justice, punishment or international criminology is particularly welcome. The University is committed to having a diverse and inclusive workforce.
Applications for job-share, part-time and flexible working arrangements are welcomed and will be considered in line with business needs.
