This is an exciting time to join the School of Law at the University of Bradford. We are a modern and progressive Law School 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.
Following the implementation of a positive development agenda over the past few years, the school has been on a trajectory of growth, evidenced in a vibrant research led learning environment, rise in national rankings, and increased student numbers.
We are currently seeking to appoint a Professor of Law to join our enthusiastic and motivated team of academics to further build the profile of the school by providing academic leadership and contributing to learning and research excellence. We are particularly interested in candidates with an established research profile in Technology Law, especially within the context of the governance and regulation of AI and other emerging technologies, the ethical and human rights dimensions of these technologies, and the impact on legal education and practice. The successful candidate will also contribute to teaching 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 the relevant field, successful supervision of PhD students to completion, a track record of successfully 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.
