The School of Law at King’s College London is offering three full-time, permanent lectureships aimed at those in the early stages of their academic career.
The School of Law’s research culture has particular strengths in two perspectives on law and society. The first perspective, rooted in the School’s long commitment to the philosophy of law, pursues questions of what is right and good in the settings of global justice, medical ethics, public law and criminal law. The second perspective, rooted in the School’s deep connections to private law and the most dynamic areas of the legal professions, probes the internal structure of law as it operates in practice, so as to expose the ways in which law falls short of what it promises, in settings such as competition law, banking and commercial law, the law of property (including intellectual property), and the law of obligations.
It is the former perspective that we are seeking to enhance at the moment. In particular, we would like to build on our existing strengths in public law, public international law, medical law/tort and criminal law. We would especially encourage applications from those who are committed to an international, comparative or theoretical perspective on those fields. Successful applicants will be expected to contribute to the teaching of qualifying law subjects on the LLB programme as well as more specialist teaching in their particular field on the LLM programme.
Salary will be on the Grade 7 salary scale currently £40,162 to £47,478 per annum (inclusive of £2,323 London Allowance per annum), depending on qualifications and experience. Informal inquiries can be made to Professor Timothy Macklem, Head of School, firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Thursday 10 June 2010.
