Job: Research Associate in negligence, Cambridge

An excellent opportunity has arisen to work at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge, on a two year collaborative research project involving the Faculty’s Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Science and THIS Institute.

 

Specifically, applications are invited for a Research Associate or Senior Research Associate to conduct research on the law of negligence and communicating differential diagnosis to patients.

The project will investigate and critically evaluate the scope of a physician’s legal duties to record and communicate the uncertainty that is inherent in the process of developing a patient’s ‘differential diagnosis’. The aim of the project is not only to clarify how the law shapes the development and communication of differential diagnoses, but also assess whether and how the law in this area should be reformed.

The position requires a degree in law, with expertise in tort law. In addition, it requires a doctoral degree or equivalent work experience.

The funds for this post are available for two years from the start date.
