Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

The School of Law at the University of Sheffield is looking to recruit a Research Associate working full time for 18 months. This post is open to applicants with research expertise in public law, broadly defined. The Research Associate will work closely with the Head of School (Professor Graham Gee). The Research Associate will be responsible for conducting research and related activities, as directed by the Head of School. Tasks will include conducting literature reviews, providing support on writing up of research outputs and funding applications, and support with impact and knowledge exchange activities.

The University of Sheffield’s School of Law is a large and diverse school with an international reputation for excellence in research, for the expertise of its staff, and the achievement of its graduates. Our vision is to advance the inter-disciplinary understanding of law, socio-legal studies and criminology, combining world-leading research with innovative research-led teaching. Our internationalisation strategy has led to a global network of research and teaching links. We encourage all undergraduate students to spend a year abroad with one of our partners, and we have structured all our degree programmes to facilitate this. The School’s civic engagement activities connect it with the city of Sheffield, and with partners in the commercial, public and third sectors, nationally and internationally. The School’s wide-ranging pro bono work enriches our students’ experience and promotes an ethic of service to justice shared by staff, student, alumni and other supporters of the School.

You will join over 45 academic staff and a large professional support team. The total student body numbers around 1,200 undergraduates and 200 postgraduates. The School has a dedicated home in Bartolome House, a Grade II listed building, close to the main campus and library with easy access to the centre of Sheffield. We believe in the power of diversity to help us to address global challenges and aim to actively build a diverse team. We particularly welcome applications from currently under-represented groups in our staff and in academia more generally, including candidates who are female and/or from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
