Liverpool Law School invites applications for four Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTFs) commencing September/October 2023.
The successful candidates will join the Law School’s vibrant PGR community, with exciting plans to complete a doctoral research project. They will additionally deliver undergraduate teaching in the Law School.
We welcome research proposals falling within the expertise of any staff member: for details of our expertise, see www.liverpool.ac.uk/law/research/research-expertise. We are keen to receive applications from candidates whose PhD proposal relates to the activities and the projects of our research clusters, details of which can be found on our cluster webpages (www.liverpool.ac.uk/law-and-social-justice/research/research-clusters).
The successful GTFs will be based in our state-of-the-art building in the centre of campus and benefit from the Law School’s teaching, research and careers training, along with further training and professional development provided by the University’s Doctoral Training College: www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/postgraduate-research/liverpool-doctoral-college.
Candidates should have completed (or be near to completing) a postgraduate degree in Law at Masters or an equivalent level. Exceptionally – applications will be considered from applicants who have an excellent first degree in Law. Successful applicants will be required to undertake small-group teaching and assessment marking in one or more foundation subjects of an English qualifying law degree (Criminal Law, Contract Law, Tort Law, Public Law, Land Law, Equity and Trusts, EU Law). Previous teaching experience is not required.
Details of the post
The GTFs will be funded over a three-year period (depending on successful progression) of full-time PhD registration, during which the post-holder will teach for the Law School. Over this period, the Law School will pay all University fees up to the international level (£20,400 FT in 2022), plus a full maintenance grant per annum fixed at the UKRI level (£17,668 in 2022). The three years of FT PhD registration will be followed by an unfunded writing-up period of up to one year. International students are welcome to apply for the GTF posts, however, to comply with UK Immigration regulations there may be a visa requirement. Full-time PhD registration will commence from October 2023.
Applications should be sent by email to Mrs Sharon Mealey (firstname.lastname@example.org) and must include a CV, covering letter, the names and contact details of three referees and a PhD research proposal. Applicants are strongly encouraged to identify and contact a prospective supervisor to discuss their proposal before applying. Staff academic profiles are available via the School’s website: www.liverpool.ac.uk/law/staff.
For queries or further information, please contact the Joint Director of Postgraduate Research in Law, Dr. Matthew Gibson (email: email@example.com).
The deadline for applications is 11:30pm (UK time) on Friday 3rd March.
