Lecturer in Policing

Updated: about 1 month ago
Location: Huddersfield, ENGLAND

Fixed term appointment until 31 July 2022, full time

The University of Huddersfield seeks to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Lecturer in Policing. We welcome applications from strong candidates in any area of policing and police practice. Candidates should have recent or current work experience in the field of policing or police training, as well as the potential to develop a track record of research. You should have a level 7 (Masters level or equivalent) qualification in a relevant subject area. You should also be able to demonstrate your ability to engage and inspire students through your teaching and/or research.

The Criminology and Policing subject area consistently performs highly in the NSS and University of Huddersfield is one of the top Universities in the North of England for teaching and learning, having been awarded the Times Higher Education University of the Year in 2013 and gold in the first Teaching Excellence Framework. Currently one of the avenues through which the Division of Criminology, Politics and Sociology, within which the subject area is situated, is seeking to develop the subject area is the provision of accredited professional policing entry degrees in collaboration with relevant police regions and related organisations. This advertised post recognises the crucial importance of supporting trainee police constables holistically throughout their course, ensuring that their practice and academic learning is fully integrated. We are committed to delivering courses that facilitate students to achieve their potential and future aspirations, whilst also supporting the professionalisation agenda of the College of Policing and the wider sector. In doing this we provide high quality courses that ensure our graduates are well-rounded, critical practitioners who are committed to excellence in practice.

The successful candidate will complement the current criminology and policing subject team and contribute to the development and delivery of new programmes being designed in professional police practice in accordance with the College of Policing educational qualification frameworks. As such, they will be an experienced practitioner or academic who can develop and deliver innovative models of teaching and learning with individual, small and large groups of trainees in person and virtually, supporting them to develop their critical self-evaluation, resilience and practice. They will need to demonstrate the ability to work across and be part of different and complex agencies, acting as a champion of the University and College of Policing’s professionalisation, ethical and leadership ethos.  The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to the broader portfolio of provision in criminology and policing. In doing so, you will be supported to build your own research profile and active membership of inter-disciplinary research centres such as the Applied Criminology and Policing Centre.

Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Jason Roach, j.roach@hud.ac.uk
