Head of Anglia Law School

Anglia Ruskin University - Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences

About Anglia Ruskin University
Our vibrant, modern university is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally and we have ambitious plans for our future. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investments. With an annual turnover of over £200m, we are a major force for higher education in the East of England.

About the Role
The Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences provides first-class teaching, research and consultancy relevant to professional activity in arts, law and social sciences. We’re committed to the mutual reinforcement of theory and practice in teaching and research and have shaped our curriculum to ensure that traditional disciplines retain a clear academic identity but translate effectively into courses with professional relevance.

We’re looking for an exceptional individual capable of providing strategic leadership for Anglia Law School which will build on its current strengths. The high quality of the School’s teaching has been reflected in the Complete University Guide 2016 and the Sunday Times University Guide 2015, both of which ranked Anglia Law School students as the most satisfied law students in the country. Anglia Law School has a rapidly-growing research culture which was recognised as including 4* research in the Research Excellence Framework and which is attracting increasing numbers of PhD students. You’ll have experience of developing and managing partnerships, both in the UK and internationally, and the vision and passion to develop the School’s reputation as a leading provider of legal education and research. This includes innovation with the Cultures of the Digital Economy (CoDE) and Policing Institute Eastern England (PIER).

With a PhD, and a first degree in Law or a related subject you’ll have a strong academic track record with a demonstrable commitment to research. You’ll also have experience of leading and managing course and curriculum design. A professional qualification would be welcome but is not essential.

There is potential for this role to be appointed at Professorial level, subject to meeting Anglia Ruskin’s Professorial Appointment Criteria.
