The Centre seeks to appoint five outstanding academics to make key contributions to the research field of ‘violence and society’ and to the Centre’s development. The posts have primary affiliation to the Violence and Society Centre and secondary affiliation to the School of Arts & Social Sciences (Lectureships in Sociology and Criminology) and (Lectureship in Global Political Violence), the City Law School (Lectureship in Law) and the School of Health Sciences (Senior Lectureship in Health).
Research, rather than education, will be the primary workload of the five positions during at least the first three years. During these three years postholders will contribute to the emerging research agenda of the Violence and Society Centre under the leadership of the Centre Director, Professor Sylvia Walby. Their research activities will be agreed with the Centre Director. Thereafter, the postholders will assume a positon in their relevant Department or School, while maintaining the central focus on work in the field of Violence and Society, developing either a more conventional balance between research and education or developing a research profile supported by external funds.
