City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.

City attracts around 20,000 students (35% 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 works across the School of Arts & Social Sciences (Departments of Sociology and International Politics), the School of Health Sciences and the City Law School. 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).

Person Specification
