Stipendiary Lecturership in Law

Christ Church invites applications for a fixed-term Stipendiary Lecturership in Law. This appointment is available for the period 09 January 2023-08 July 2023.  This is a temporary, fixed-term position to fulfil the teaching need arising from Professor Simpson’s leave during the academic year 2022/23 and the recent departure of another fixed-term member of staff. Therefore, the appointment carries with it no expectation of permanent employment at Christ Church.

The Lecturer will be expected to deliver four hours per week of high-quality tutorial teaching, averaged over the two remaining eight-week terms of the academic year and weighted in accordance with the Senior Tutors’ Committee recommendations, to undergraduates in constitutional law and jurisprudence.

The salary will be in the range of £9,587-£10,783 (current rates) per annum pro rata, according to qualifications and experience. New appointments are usually made at the first point of the scale.

Applicants should have evidence of the skills needed for higher education teaching in tutorial or small group settings, a Bachelor of Arts (First Class) or equivalent in Law and a research record or professional experience commensurate with the stage of their career. It is desirable but not necessary that candidates be close to completing, or have completed, a higher degree in the subject, such as the BCL, LLM or a doctorate.

Further information, including instructions about how to apply, are available in the appended Further Particulars. The deadline for applications is 12:00 noon on Monday 5th December 2022.

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

It is our policy and practice that entry into employment and progression within employment will be determined only by criteria which are related to the duties of a particular post and the relevant salary scale. No applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of their age, disability, ethnicity, marital or civil partnership status, parental status, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.
