We are recruiting three new members of academic staff to the School of Law at the University of Nottingham.

The School of Law at the University of Nottingham is a dynamic place for research, teaching and learning. It is consistently ranked amongst the top law schools in the UK and attracts some of the very best students from around the world to its excellent undergraduate, Masters and PhD programmes.  

We are looking to recruit three people to join our intellectually engaging and collegial academic environment. The appointments may be made at Assistant or Associate Professor level. In particular, we would like to hear from people who can make:

  • a contribution to teaching Criminal Justice;
  • a contribution to teaching Environmental Law (especially international aspects) and at least one subject from the following: Law of Contract, Criminal Law, Land Law, Public Law, Foundations of Tort, Law of Trusts, World Trade/ International Economic Law; and
  • a contribution to teaching one (or preferably more) subjects from the following: Law of Contract, Criminal Law, Land Law, Public Law, Foundations of Tort, Law of Trusts, World Trade/ International Economic Law.

The School strongly supports research-engaged teaching and so would normally expect the successful applicants to be engaged in research on one of the areas that they teach.

Other teaching may also be available, depending upon the successful candidate’s background and interests. We will also expect the successful candidate to publish internationally excellent research, and have the ability to secure research funding. All of our academics also contribute to School administration.

We believe that every one of our staff can contribute to enhancing the diverse environment in which we work, and we are keen to hear what your contribution could be. We want to appoint people not just based on their past achievements, but also on the potential they show for the future and we want to draw on the widest possible range of talents and backgrounds. A diverse and supportive environment, bringing different perspectives to our work and allowing people to blossom is the best platform for cutting-edge research and excellent teaching and student support.
