Durham Law School seeks to appoint a Lecturer for a two-year period.

Durham University is consistently ranked among the top 100 universities in the world, and Durham Law School is one of the UK's leading centres for legal research and teaching. We ranked joint fourth in the UK in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in terms of the proportion of research activity ranked at the highest 4* level. The School achieved the top rating of ‘Excellent’ for its teaching in our most recent Quality Assurance Agency inspection, and we are consistently rated one of the leading UK law schools in various league tables. Our academic and research staff, together with our undergraduate and postgraduate students, comprise a dynamic and focused intellectual community. Early career researchers within the School are assigned to an academic mentor and supported in their transition into full-time academic life. Our courses are highly regarded, entry is very competitive and we select a diverse student intake from across the world.

The successful applicant will be in post on or before September 2013.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the School.
