With over 50 years of academic excellence and having been recently named the UK's University of the Year for Social Inclusion 2020 by The Times and Sunday Times, the University of Bradford is an excellent place to work, with a supportive, diverse and inclusive environment. The University continues to grow its international reputation and innovative course provision. With almost 10,000 students, the University is pioneering in developing new course subjects, reflecting and anticipating the needs of employers, students, and of society as a whole.

The School of Law is a dynamic and exciting place to work. As a progressive law school, we are invested in developing the lawyers of the future. Our curriculum addresses emerging legal issues, and employability is core to our study programmes and extra-curricular activities including the Law Clinic, Mooting and our Career Booster programme. Our high standard of teaching is underpinned by rigorous and innovative research which is policy-oriented and promotes social justice. We are proud to have a broad range of partners who provide real-world experience, and commercial awareness that enables our students to excel in a competitive environment and make a positive impact in the modern workplace.

The School has been on a trajectory of growth, and are currently seeking to appoint an Associate Professor in law to join an enthusiastic and motivated team of academics to continue to build the profile of the school by contributing to learning and research excellence. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in International Human Rights Law, International Environmental Law, and/or Transnational Crime, and are able to contribute to teaching modules on these subjects on our LLM programmes.  S/he will also be required to teach one or more areas of our UG curriculum.

The successful candidate will have a strong and active research profile evidenced by internationally recognised research publications in a relevant field, successful supervision of PhD students to completion, a record of attracting research funding or demonstrate the potential to do so, as well as other esteem indicators. The post-holder will be expected to work closely with established partners and contribute towards Executive Education where necessary. This role is aligned with the University Strategy that promotes the development of international academic partnerships, developing and expanding commercial links to support our mission, vision and values. Therefore, the ability to persuade, influence, motivate and establish credibility with a wide range of stakeholders is essential.
