The Opportunity:

This is an excellent opportunity for an entrepreneurial early career researcher to join the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)-funded project: Reversing the Gaze, at Edinburgh Law School. You will undertake targeted research projects on areas of key theoretical and empirical concern. You will also develop their program management and administrative skills in supporting the PI to execute the project. You well have 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 support 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 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. 

This post is part-time (14 hours per week). We are also open to considering requests for hybrid working (on a non-contractual basis) that combines a mix of remote and regular on-campus working.  

This is a part-time post, from 1 August 2024 to 30 September 2025 (with possibility of a further extension contingent on funder approval)
