Exciting new job opportunities in Digital and Urban Sociology

The School has two vacancies for University Academic Fellows in cutting-edge areas of Digital and Urban Sociology.

We are developing a programme of research and teaching in these vibrant areas of sociology and want to appoint scholars who can work with colleagues with interests in inequalities, social justice and technology across our research centres, engaging with innovative methodologies and theories and forging links across the social sciences more broadly.

The posts form part of the University's £100m "250 great minds" initiative.  It aims to recruit 250 early career academic fellows over the next three years.

With the unique fellowship scheme, successful applicants will embark on a five year strutured development programme, leading to an established position as an associate professor. The recruitment campaign has been driven by the University’s ambition to develop and explore new research and educational opportunities on an interdisciplinary basis.
