You should have a high-quality research profile commensurate with your career status, as well as a proven commitment to conducting and/or collaborating on interdisciplinary research projects.
You will play a full part in the conduct of the project research at Edinburgh Law School, as both a team member and a research leader. You will also play a full part in the overall project, a consortium between Edinburgh, the University of Basel, and the University of Zurich. Finally, you will play a full part in the collegiate life of the Edinburgh Law School, and will be supported to develop and execute an ambitious and impactful research agenda, which will place you in a strong position to take the next step in your academic career.
The School of Law strives to be a diverse and inclusive community. We particularly welcome applications from candidates belonging to groups that have been traditionally under-represented in the subject.
As well as a CV and cover letter, candidates are requested to upload an outline (maximum 2 pages) of their research plans in relation to the project, and a one-page document identifying their two strongest publications (which may include work under review or accepted but not published), and explaining why - in their view - these pieces are both original and significant.
To take the lead in developing and delivering an ambitious programme of research, as part of a team of early-career and established academics across Edinburgh Law School, the University of Basel, and the University of Zurich.
