Professor of Sociology


The School of Humanities and Social Sciences at The University of Newcastle seeks to appoint a Professor of Sociology to join a dynamic and high performing School that has undergone transformation in the last three years.


The University’s vision is to stand as a global leader, creating a better future for its regions through innovation, impact, and a commitment to excellence and equity; this vision applies equally to the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Over the last year, the University has made a major investment in further strengthening the School; having made more than 15 new appointments.


The School has a reputation for excellence in research and teaching. A vibrant interdisciplinary vein runs through the School, focussed around four clusters, with Sociology sitting in the Societies, Cultures and Human Services cluster.


Bringing a strong personal academic record, the new Professor will also be committed to contemporary teaching practice, energetic in developing fresh research opportunities, a generous mentor and successful in engaging beyond the University, with a collaborative approach to working with colleagues.


Aligned with the professional opportunity, Newcastle and its region offers a superb quality of life, be it the beaches, the vineyards or the flourishing creative community in the city.
