The position is to take a leadership and management role in developing a successful programme of health law research and teaching alongside Professor Jane Kaye. The position has been established within the Law School but will work closely with the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences and other relevant faculties and schools.
The successful incumbent will ideally be experienced in establishing collaborations and developing research projects with healthcare professionals working in innovative areas of translational research.

After that time they may be required to take on a full teaching load.
