To this end, they will conduct empirical research that feeds into professional practice and/or policy-making in a crime and justice context. The appointee will teach on one or more of our undergraduate or postgraduate programmes. There are some existing modules we need to cover but there is also scope for the appointee to develop new modules based around their area(s) of expertise and research interests. Closing date: 7 July 2019.
- Associate Professor in Security and Crime Science - Financial Crime: With this current position the Department is seeking to build capacity in the area of financial crime, broadly defined. The appointee will play a leading role in developing financial crime as a research and teaching strength within the Department. They will be expected to undertake high quality research within their own specialist areas of financial crime that contributes to the broad crime science agenda of using scientific knowledge and methods to develop practical and ethical ways to reduce or detect crime (including terrorism). To this end, they will conduct empirical research that feeds into professional practice and/or policy-making in criminal justice and financial regulatory contexts. The appointee will teach on one or more of our undergraduate or postgraduate programmes. While they may contribute to existing modules there is the expectation that the appointee will develop new modules in financial crime. Closing date: 7 July 2019.
