Are you an outstanding individual with expertise in commercial law with the ambition to contribute to the further development of the School’s Centre for Business Law and Practice?
Do you want to be part of a thriving law school in a Russell Group University? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience?
The School of Law at Leeds is a successful, collegial law school strongly committed to achieving excellence in both student education and research.
We are looking to appoint to commercial lectureships, people who share our commitment to collegiality and excellence in research and education.
Research excellence is an important part of what the School is about. We were ranked 8th overall in the UK for the quality of our research in REF 2014 and 4th for the impact of our research on society.
We have continued to invest to strengthen further our research centres. We are equally proud of our results in the National Student Survey over the last few years and student education lies at the heart of all we do.
We are seeking to appoint as colleagues, people with a strong research and teaching profile to complement our existing research strengths in corporate, commercial and banking law.
The successful candidates will contribute to the national and international profile and standing of the Centre for Business Law and Practice which is one of the School’s highly successful research centres
The posts are open to those with expertise in commercial law broadly conceived. Applications are particularly welcome from those who research and / or teach corporate law, banking or financial law, private law of international trade, or commercial contracts.
As a research active academic, you will be expected to maintain a strong research and publication record, and to enhance the School’s research activities and research culture.
You will deliver undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules in appropriate subject areas, as well as supervising dissertations and PhD candidates.
You will also be expected to undertake a normal load of administrative duties within the School and work within the context of University values and policies, which are designed to promote dignity, diversity and inclusiveness.
The appointment offers considerable potential for personal initiative and fulfilment through work within a centre of research excellence and a growing law school.
We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the School at this level.
We will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible.
