Lecturers in Law

Cardiff University - School of Law and Politics

The School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University is seeking to appoint two lecturers (Grade 7) in Law. The specific area of expertise within Law is open, but there is a strong desire to appoint candidates who conduct empirical research on law. A research agenda on Law and Society, Law and Politics, Law and Ethics and/or Law and Courts would be an advantage. It is highly desirable that the candidates be well versed in the application of quantitative methods.

The post holders are expected to conduct research and teaching in the broad area of Law at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. They will be expected to deliver a foundational module in Law, ideally in Property law. They will also (co-) supervise undergraduate, Masters and PhD dissertations, and contribute to the successful administration and management of the School and its constituent departments.

The successful candidates will have obtained a PhD or equivalent in Law, Politics/Political Science or an allied field by the time the appointment begins. They should also have demonstrable potential of excellence in both research and teaching. The successful applicants will be expected to apply and attain competitive external research funding.

This post is full-time and open-ended.

Please be aware that Cardiff University reserves the right to close this vacancy early should sufficient applications be received
