Senior Lecturer (Job Ref: P53905)
University of Exeter - College of Social Sciences and International Studies
To further strengthen our expertise in advanced quantitative methods
in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies and the
Exeter Q-Step Centre, we are seeking to appoint a full time permanent
Senior Lecturer from a relevant discipline (e.g. Social Policy,
Sociology, Politics and International Relations and Criminology).
This full-time post is available from 01/01/2017 on a permanent basis.
Cutting-edge research in the social sciences often employs advanced
quantitative methods and new techniques suitable to analyse
large-scale structured and unstructured data. We are seeking to
appoint an academic who can add to our growing expertise in
quantitative methods and can contribute to the College's and
University's data driven research strategy. The post-holder will play
a key role in collaboration with colleagues in the College in
developing and delivering high quality research and teaching that is
theoretically motivated, methodologically sophisticated and employs
quantitative data. We also expect the post holder to play a leading
role in the development and implementation of an MSc in Policy
The primary research area of the post-holder will be within the social
sciences (e.g. Political Science, International Relations, Sociology,
Criminology or other related social science field) and whose approach
and publications demonstrate advanced proficiency in quantitative
methods. In addition to demonstrated potential for publishing in
leading journals and securing research grants, it is essential that
the candidate have expertise in and be able to teach and develop
courses employing quantitative methods. Within this broad area, we are
open to specialisms but are interested in the techniques associated
with policy evaluation, social policy analysis, social networks,
demography and/or other related areas.
This post holder will join a social science discipline and the Exeter
Q-Step Centre. Q-Step -- a £19.5 million programme designed to promote
a step-change in quantitative social science training. Exeter is one

undergraduate programmes, including new courses, work placements and
pathways to postgraduate study that develop quantitative data analysis
skills. Q-Step was developed as a strategic response to the shortage
of quantitatively-skilled social science graduates. It is funded by
the Nuffield Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council
(ESRC) and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
