Applications are invited from world-leading scholars in the field of medical law and ethics for the Chair of Medical Jurisprudence, which becomes vacant on 1 September 2019.

The first UK chair in medical jurisprudence was established at Edinburgh University in 1807, initially in the Faculty of Law and then the Faculty of Medicine, returning to the School of Law in 2005. Its (re)establishment in Edinburgh Law School marked a commitment to research and teaching excellence in this field, and signalled the objective to secure Edinburgh’s position as one of the leading centres for medical law and ethics in the United Kingdom and beyond.

The University seeks to appoint a scholar working in any area of medical law and from any jurisdiction. As well as providing research leadership in and beyond the Medical Law and Ethics Subject Area, she or he will contribute to postgraduate LLM teaching on both on-campus and online programmes, undergraduate courses, and the supervision of research students.

The successful candidate will be expected to take up the appointment from September 2019. This is a full time, open-ended post.

Closing date: Friday 1st February 2019, 5pm (GMT).

Salary: within the Professorial scale.

Informal enquiries may be made to the Head of School, Professor Martin Hogg (HoS.Law@ed.ac.uk).
