This is a fixed term appointment for two years

 

The Law School is seeking to appoint up to four fixed-term LSE Fellows. The fellowship is not restricted to any particular area of legal study. 

 

The objective of the Fellowships is to provide a development opportunity for those who have exceptional potential in legal research and scholarship. During the two-year appointment, LSE Fellows will have the opportunity to develop their teaching experience, as well as their research trajectory. Fellows are expected to contribute to class teaching on the undergraduate degree programme and other teaching on the undergraduate or postgraduate programme as may be available.  While our class teaching needs can arise in all core areas of the undergraduate curriculum, we particularly welcome applicants who can teach in the areas of Regulation including in particular Financial Market Regulation, Environmental Law, Policy and Regulation, and Corporate and Commercial Law.

 

Candidates should have a PhD in Law, or be close to completing one, by the post start date. In addition, you will have research expertise in an area of law with potential to develop a body of high-quality publications in peer-reviewed journals and potential to develop a national/international reputation for research in the area of your expertise.  Relevant teaching experience including assessing courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level would be an advantage.  You must be able to demonstrate excellent communication and presentation skills and a capacity to foster an engaging and supportive learning environment for students.

 

We offer an occupational pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.
