York Law (YLS) is seeking to appoint a creative and collaborative legal scholar to a Chair in Law. We welcome applications from scholars with research interests in any area of law, but are particularly keen to encourage applications from scholars who work across disciplinary boundaries and have a deep commitment to shaping socially relevant research agendas across the university.

As the only Law School in the UK to base our undergraduate degrees on problem-based learning (PBL), we offer a distinctive and dynamic approach to teaching and learning.  Our research strategy has been to build a community of scholars interested in greater disciplinary openness and in working across doctrinal boundaries, with a focus on socially engaged and intellectually creative research.  We have made important contributions to the University's cross-disciplinary research themes. We have excellent networks with other disciplines within and beyond the University, and a very strong record of research and impact with a global reach. We also host the Baroness Hale Legal Clinic, which provides free legal advice and forms an important base for our research. 

We are looking for a collegial scholar with a strong commitment to our distinctive approach, who will work with us to develop and deepen our networks with other departments, disciplines, and sectors and to nurture and support other colleagues at YLS.

  • To support and mentor junior academic colleagues in order to promote quality of teaching and research and their career development
  • To play a leading role in departmental and interdepartmental curriculum development and quality enhancement
  • To make an important contribution to the leadership and management of the Department, including supporting early career staff and developing new collaborative initiatives

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed

  • A PhD in law or a cognate discipline, or equivalent experience
  • An outstanding and internationally recognised knowledge of a relevant subject area
  • Intellectual leadership in a major research field, evidenced in a substantial publication record in leading peer-reviewed journals and success in accessing research grants and other external funding
  • Proven leadership and managerial skills
  • Effective and sustained involvement in major administrative tasks or positions of responsibility within a department or research unit
  • Ability to manage and interact with staff and students at all levels and to contribute  to broadening the strategic development of the Department
  • A collaborative ethos and a commitment to supporting colleagues
