Fellow and College Lecturer in Law
Jesus College wishes to appoint a College Lecturer in Law. The post is for a fixed term of 5 years, starting on 1st September 2023, and carries with it a Fellowship at the College (the Yates Glazebrook Fellowship in Law). The successful candidate is expected to provide small-group teaching (supervision) in at least one of the following papers: Constitutional Law, Civil Law I (Roman Law), Tort Law, Contract Law, Equity and EU Law. If the successful candidate teaches only one of those papers, they must be able to offer supervisions in another paper from the Law Tripos, other than Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Evidence and Land Law.
The Lectureship is intended to provide a valuable development opportunity for a fixed term to an individual at the beginning of their academic career to allow them to build teaching skills, a publication record and other academic activity with a view to obtaining a university appointment in the University of Cambridge or elsewhere after holding the Lectureship. In addition to individuals who have already started their academic career, or are finishing their graduate studies in Law, the College is equally interested in individuals with some teaching experience considering a switch from legal practice to academia.
The successful applicant will be expected to undertake up to ten hours a week of small-group teaching (supervision) in Law, to direct studies in Parts of the Law Tripos and/or the LLM/MCL, to play an active part in the organisation and support of the subject within the College, including helping with undergraduate admissions, to engage in research and publication of international quality, and to undertake other College offices or duties appropriate to an early-career appointment if asked to do so by Council.
The stipend, which can be pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme, is on a scale from £34,308 to £42,155 per annum (Points 41 to 48 on the University Single Spine), reviewable 1st August 2023.
Further particulars about the post and the application procedure are available to download from the College website https://www.jesus.cam.ac.uk/college/people/vacancies. The closing date for applications is 4th April 2023. Applicants should ask their referees to write on their behalf by the same date. Interview for shortlisted candidates are expected to be held on 2nd May 2023.
