City attracts around 20,000 students (35% at postgraduate level), from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries. In the last REF, City doubled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. Led by President, Professor Sir Paul Curran, City has made signiﬁcant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university: it has recently agreed a new Vision & Strategy 2026. Founded in 1894, City is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
The Violence and Society Centre was established at City in March 2019 with Professor Sylvia Walby OBE as its Director. The Centre is interdisciplinary and international and produces research relevant to the agenda of ‘zero violence’. It holds research grants, supervises PhDs and run seminars and conferences. A graduate programme is being developed.
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).
The successful candidates will have established records of producing world-leading or internationally excellent research in the field of ‘violence and society’; experience of externally funded research and engagement and impact on the non-academic world; and the expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to deliver education at graduate level.
During the first three years the appointed academics will contribute to the emerging research agenda of the Violence and Society Centre and be without departmental teaching commitments. Thereafter, they will assume positions in their affiliated Schools and Departments.
