Are you an experienced researcher with proven abilities to carry out research and teaching in quantitative criminology and research methods?

With a vision and drive to develop a prestigious internationally competitive research portfolio as well as a passion for undertaking research-led teaching you will make a significant impact on the performance, stature and profile of research and student education at The University of Leeds. This University Academic Fellowship (UAF) is a tenure track equivalent post for future academic leaders which provides an excellent opportunity to establish an academic career at a research intensive University and play a key role in our ambitious plans for the future. You will embark on a structured five year development programme, successful completion of which will lead to your appointment as a grade 9 Associate Professor.
You will develop your own programme of research that complements and builds upon the work of the N8 Policing Research Partnership (N8 PRP) led by Professor Adam Crawford. Your research programme will explore ways of exploiting and analysing various forms of crime and policing data that add value to the work of the Data Analytic activity strand of the N8 PRP.

The N8 PRP is a major collaboration between the eight research intensive universities in the north of England and policing partners, including 11 police forces and Police and Crime Commissioners.

You will also have opportunities to connect and collaborate with and benefit from the significant investment in data analytics capacity around the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA).
You will be skilled in statistical methods and quantitative criminological analysis, with experience and understanding of the analysis of crime/police data and social science informatics (e.g. GIS, network analysis). You will also have experience of working collaboratively on complex research projects and a promising publication profile.
