Lecturer in Law

Robert Gordon University

Job Summary

Robert Gordon University is a leading modern university, renowned for the employability of its graduates and holder of a Gold Award in TEF. Its professionally-focused Law School has a strong reputation for innovative and flexible online and on-campus courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, which have a global reach. Building on its success, the Law School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, permanent Lecturer in Law. The successful candidate will contribute to a thriving Law School primarily through lecturing at undergraduate and graduate levels. Applications are welcome from those with experience of teaching any area of Law but in particular from those with experience of teaching in Commercial Law or Scots Private Law. 

In addition to teaching, the successful candidate will be expected to undertake research in Law and carry out appropriate administrative roles within the Law School. 

Individual staff in the Law School undertake high quality research over a number of specialisms, such as legal theory, construction law, corporate responsibility, medical law, and delict/tort. There are particular strengths in the following areas in which several Law School staff members are active: 
• Commercial law; 
• Criminal law; 
• Dispute resolution; 
• Employment and equality law 
• Human rights; 
• Intellectual property; 
• Oil and gas/ energy law; 
• Public law (including EU law); 
• Scots private law; and 
• Tax law 

The School has close links with the University’s Oil and Gas Institute but interdisciplinary work is carried out with other areas of the University as well as through collaborations with academic institutions. You will be expected to contribute to research output in the form of original research publications in quality journals, and supervision of doctoral students in your area of expertise. There is an expectation that, in collaboration with others, staff will seek out and obtain external research funding. 

Salary on appointment will be dependent upon experience. Candidates with limited/no lecturing experience will be placed on the first point of the scale, although consideration will be given to a market supplement (reviewed bi-annually) for those with specific industry experience. 

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Ken Mackinnon, Head of 
Department, on 01224 263914. 

Closing date: 28 August 2017 

A Disclosure Scotland check will be requested for the successful applicant. For more information, visit: http://www.disclosurescotland.co.uk
