Professor of Law

University of Sussex - Department of Law

Sussex Law School is looking for a committed and reliable academic to join our team as a Chair in Law.

The successful candidate will be a world-leading researcher with experience of leading teams of researchers and mentoring more junior colleagues. The successful candidate will be expected to take on research students and to develop research relationships both across the University and externally.

The ability to teach and research in common law subjects, particularly the law of obligations or property law, would be an advantage.

As we currently have an under-representation in the Department of a number of groups– in particular BAME and LGBT+- we would particularly welcome applications from people who are members of these groups. All appointments will be made on merit.
