In addition, you will have a research expertise in an area of law with exceptional potential to develop a body of high-quality publications in peer reviewed journals and demonstrable potential to develop a national/international reputation for research in the area of expertise.  Relevant teaching experience including assessing courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level would be an advantage.  You must have the ability to demonstrate excellent communication and presentation skills and have the ability to foster an engaging and supportive learning environment for students.

In addition to a competitive salary the benefits that come with this job include an occupational pension scheme, a collegial faculty environment and excellent support, training and development opportunities.
