The Department of Sociology at the University of York is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Sociology from 1st January 2022 or a convenient time thereafter.
We are looking to appoint an outstanding individual with a research agenda and teaching experience that can contribute to and enhance our strong research and learning and teaching environment.
You will play a leading role in the Department in terms of sustaining and enriching our existing research culture. You will contribute to one or more of our four research clusters – Cultures, Value and Practices; Gender, Sexuality and Inequalities; Language and Social Interaction; Science, Health and Technology – which provide a fertile intellectual environment, stimulating debate and inspiring the design and delivery of world-leading research. In this respect you will be expected to publish original research of the highest quality and secure research funding by developing research income-generating activities.
You will also be expected to teach on our undergraduate and masters programmes – which include sociology, criminology, and digital and social media – and to recruit and supervise research students. You will take an active role in the administration of the Department.
You will join a team of colleagues whose commitment to research resulted in the Department being ranked first in REF2014 (sustaining its premier position established in RAE 2008) and whose commitment to learning and teaching produces consistently excellent performance in a range of measures.
The Department is keen to strengthen the diversity of its staff group and therefore particularly welcomes applications from currently under-represented groups (which includes BAME, disabled, LGBT+ and gender-diverse candidates).
Interview Date: 8 October 2021

The University strives to be diverse and inclusive – a place where we can ALL be ourselves.
We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.
We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
