The Department of Sociology invites applications for three full-time, permanent Lecturers in Sociology. You will have expertise in one (or more) of the following three substantive/methodological areas: 1) criminology and/or the sociology of crime and deviance; 2) race and ethnicity; 3) language and social interaction, especially conversation analysis.   

You will be an outstanding scholar with a PhD who will join our vibrant, research-led department. Sociology at York was ranked 1st in the UK for research quality (REF2014) (sustaining our premier position established in the previous RAE 2008).
