As a TEF-Gold rated institution, the University of Lincoln is ranked 22nd in the UK in the Guardian University Guide and 42nd in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. As part of a Global Chairs campaign, and to invest further in research leadership where we know we can make a significant difference, the University now seeks to appoint a Global Chair in Digital Policing as part of its Global Chairs Campaign. The Chair may potentially serve as Director of a new national Centre for Digital Policing
Suitable candidates will possess significant academic standing and accomplishment in the field, as well as the vision, leadership, experience and enthusiasm to make a real impact in building and advancing research activity at the University in this area. Growing out of work with the police service on an under researched area, digital policing, this post will lead a Centre with important policy implications. This role in Digital Policing will focus on ‘big data’ and/ or the considerable ethical and legal issues for policing of the digital world. This role will take the lead in building a new Centre in this area, with strong links out to stakeholders, nationally and internationally.
We understand that research is at the heart of what it means to be a university. We are proud to be home to world-class researchers who are making significant contributions to their subject areas. This was reflected in the latest Research Excellence Framework, where more than half of the University’s research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent.
We are a fast-growing university, where staff and students work collaboratively on pioneering research that makes a tangible difference to people’s lives. Our researchers are tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems, from the fight against drug-resistant bacteria to mitigating the impact of climate change.
As the area of digital policing is multidisciplinary by its nature, the appointed individual will take an academic post in the department or academic unit most aligned to his or her core research interests.
