Teesside University has established 5 Research Institutes in key areas of research strength.  These institutes provide a clear focus for research development and a platform upon which to build the University’s growing reputation for research excellence.  We now wish to recruit key researchers to drive forward the development of the Institutes.   The Social Futures Institute wishes to build on existing successful research in the area of Social Policy and appoint a Professor to contribute to this.  We are looking for an individual committed to high quality academic publication and research income generation, who also has a commitment to the principle of influencing policy and practice at local, regional and national levels.   Applications are particularly welcome from individuals with a focus on, or interests in, any of the following areas: criminology/criminal justice; social exclusion; community cohesion; sustainable communities; and the policy process.   For appointment to this post candidates must meet the professorial criteria of the Teesside University which will be included in the application pack or in the additional information on the website.   You will also find it useful to read the information in our Annual Research Report which you can find on the Research pages of our website: http://www.e-pages.dk/universityofteeside/11/.   Application forms and further details are available online at www.tees.ac.uk or from the Human Resources Department, Teesside University, Middlesbrough, Tees Valley, TS1 3BA.
