For over 50 years the University of Strathclyde Law School has been educating lawyers who want to make a difference to today’s world. We focus on learning with impact and want our students not only to have the best classroom based experience but to learn how to deal with real clients in a rapidly changing world. Our research has similarly been rated best in Scotland for intensity and our staff are among the top experts in their fields.

Due to our rapid growth trajectory and ambitions for the future, we are seeking a range of talented individuals to augment our current staffing profile. One of our key strategic areas for appointment is in Scots Private Law and we are looking to appoint teaching professionals who specialise in one or more of the following areas: Family Law, Property Trusts & Succession, and Obligations. It is our intention to make three appointments within Scots Private Law, within either academic or teaching roles. All appointment levels will depend upon the skills and experience of the candidate.

Appointees will lead the design, development and delivery of a range of teaching programmes, and will manage teaching teams, providing leadership, support and guidance to colleagues. They will also lead scholarship activities with impact appropriate to appointment grade. Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent professional experience) in an appropriate discipline, and have a sustained track record of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Candidates should also have experience of leading curriculum development and be able to demonstrate a sustained track record of appropriate scholarship activities.

Proven staff, budget and project management skills are also required.
