Detail information about job Career Development Fellowship in Law. Terms and conditions vacancy
Hertford College intends to appoint a fixed-term Career Development Fellow in Law. This post is designed for an individual with outstanding potential at an early stage of their academic career, wishing to specialise in the field of Public Law. This is a fixed-term, non-renewable post available from 1 October 2017 or 1 January 2018 (depending on the successful candidate’s availability) until 30 September 2019.
The duties will involve teaching, research and some administrative duties. The teaching load will be an average of 8 hours per week in pairs and small classes over each term. The successful candidate will be asked to provide tutorial teaching in at least two, and preferably all, of the following core subjects on the undergraduate syllabus: Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, and EU Law. In addition, the appointee will be responsible for undergraduate teaching in Law at Hertford from 1 January 2018, sharing that responsibility with the incoming APTF in Private Law when that person takes up the post. The successful candidate will also assist with the pastoral care of undergraduates, share responsibility for the Undergraduate Admissions exercise for Law courses, engage in advanced study and research, and, as a Fellow, attend relevant committees and take an appropriate share of administrative duties.
Candidates should have a good first degree in Law (or a related subject), and ideally should have a doctorate in an appropriate academic field secured in the four years preceding the closing date, or submitted within the last six months prior to closing date. The post would also be suitable for those with appropriate teaching experience and no doctorate, or appropriate alternative relevant experience (e.g. in legal practice). Candidates will need to demonstrate research excellence and teaching experience, with experience of Oxford Undergraduate Admissions an advantage. The salary will be on Grade 7, from point 3 to point 6 (currently £32,958 to £36,001). The precise sum will depend on qualifications and experience, and will be pensionable with USS. The Fellow will be entitled to an office in College, membership of the College’s Senior Common Room (SCR), with full Fellows’ dining rights in term and vacation, and allowances for research, computer equipment and entertainment. The College will arrange for a mentor of the Career Development Fellow. Further particulars for the post are available on the Hertford College website: http://www.hertford.ox.ac.uk/about/vacancies.
Hertford currently has c. 24 undergraduates reading for the degrees of Law and Law with Studies in Europe, and c. 5 graduates reading for higher degrees in Law. Details of these courses may be found on the website of the Faculty of Law: https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/.
Candidates should send a cv including relevant experience, a covering letter (of 1-2 pages) including a list of the subjects they are willing to teach, a statement of future research plans, an application form (available on the college website); and the names of two referees by email to Ms Julia Howe, Deputy Academic Administrator, Hertford College, ([email protected]) by 9am on Friday 8 September 2017. Candidates should also arrange for their referees to write to the College by the same date. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to submit a short written sample of research. It is anticipated that interviews will be held on Monday 18 September 2017.
