The Post

Stirling Law School is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer or Associate Professor in Scots private and/or commercial Law who is able to teach across a range of courses on our programmes, including the Scots law LLB and who could contribute effectively to our strong research culture. The successful candidate will be expected to produce high quality outputs, make grant applications and work towards creating impact.

The post is not tied to one area of research specialism but applications from those with a strong profile in commercial law, family law, employment law or delict would be particularly welcome.  The successful candidate will have a Scots law LLB and will take over the directorship and development of our BA Law programmes.

The Law School was established in 2005 and sits within the Division of Law and Philosophy: we have already established an excellent track record in research and in learning and teaching. The Grade Point Average measuring the overall quality of the Law School’s research outputs in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) was ranked first for law in Scotland and our aim is to maximise research quality, impact beyond academia and funding. Law scored 93% in NSS 2017 and has a commitment to delivering an excellent student experience. Successful candidates would therefore be expected to make an effective contribution to both research and teaching. 

They will undertake other administrative duties as prescribed by the Head of Division. The successful candidate will be expected to supervise PhD student(s) and to produce high quality research outputs, work towards generating impact and apply for grant funding in their area of research expertise. 

It is desirable that the successful applicant is part of or has the potential to develop research networks and impact.
