The Post

Stirling Law School is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in International Commercial Law: International Commercial law is broadly defined but we would be particularly interested to hear from applicants with specialisms in areas such as dispute resolution, international trade and/or corporate finance (including energy finance).

The successful candidate would be able to teach across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including the Scots law LLB, BA degrees and the proposed common law LLB and would be part of a team developing short course for international partners. The successful candidate would be expected to contribute effectively to our strong research culture and expected to produce high quality outputs, make grant applications and work towards creating impact. 

It is essential that the candidate has a Scots law LLB or an LLB from another UK jurisdiction or from a Common Law jurisdiction to be able to teach on accredited modules.

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 and ranked 16th in the UK for Law in the Times Good University Guide 2019. 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 91% in NSS 2018 and has a commitment to delivering an excellent student experience. We are looking for a lecturer with similar values to join our team.

If successful, you will also 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.
