We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

If you are in the early stages of an academic career and are considering joining NTU, then our Early Career Academic Development Programme could be just right for you.

If you are considering joining NTU as a Senior Lecturer you will benefit from our Senior Lecturer Career Framework, which recognises and rewards you based on your performance, contribution and achievement, and offers the opportunity of faster salary progression compared to the industry average.

NTU’s School of Social Science is many things to many people. We’re one of the UK’s preeminent teaching and learning environments; a conduit for unique opportunities in both academia and business; a nationally and internationally recognised research centre; a hub for the strategic partnerships that are shaping civic, cultural and social life; and a true beacon for the community. As an aspiring university of the future, we understand and embrace our key obligations – to create new opportunities and manage the deployment of skills and knowledge for the betterment of communities, society and professional practice. The School of Social Science is key in realising those commitments, and these posts are part of that ambition to provide genuinely life-changing opportunities.​​​​​​​

As we expand the Department of Social and Political Sciences (SPS), we seek two highly motivated Sociologists with the skills and experience to join our established research, practice, and teaching teams. SPS is a vibrant and welcoming place to work encompassing innovative programmes in Sociology, Politics, International Relations, Public Policy and Security at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We are specifically looking for colleagues to support research and teaching in the areas of core sociology curriculum, crime and society, sociology of health and illness, disability studies and/or race and ethnicity. You will have an enthusiastic approach to education and will support existing delivery and help develop further provision within the department. Course leadership experience is particularly relevant and welcomed.  

Interview Date: TBC
