We are looking for candidates who share our vision of an international, outward-looking team with a strong commitment to retaining the Department’s leading position at the cutting-edge of teaching and research in our subjects of specialization.

The candidates are most likely to have started off in one of the following disciplines: Technology Law, Information Policy & Governance, Intelligence, Police or other Security studies, Political Science, applied ICT Technologies. Helping to launch a new Master in Information Policy, Law & Security will also be one of the first roles of the new appointee.

It is at the centre of a vibrant international research community and co-hosts the LexConverge research network which has co-ordinated several  million Euro worth of inter-disciplinary research projects, providing co-ordination services to over 100 researchers across 35 institutions in 29 countries. The founding Head of the Department was appointed the UN’s first Special Rapporteur for Privacy in July 2015.
