York St John is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic York and there has never been a more exciting time to join us.

Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary courses have helped make us one of the fastest growing Universities in the U.K. over recent years.

Now we are building on that achievement, with a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region.

We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset and investing in enabling this expertise to thrive.

As a Stonewall Global Diversity Champion and holder of the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice, our strength lies in the supportive, inclusive network that exists within our teams: renowned for our friendly, progressive environment, we will nurture your potential so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

All of this takes place at the heart of beautiful York, recently named by the Sunday Times as the best U.K. city to grow up in because of the quality of education, culture and community spirit that we form part of!

York St John Law School is one of the UK’s newest, and fastest growing, Law Schools and we are seeking to appoint three new Senior Lecturers to join our growing team and make a unique contribution.  

This is a fantastic opportunity to take a leading role in developing legal education and research and make a real difference. The Law School is a dynamic and exciting place to work, rooted in the wider values of York St John University, with a strong commitment to social justice and the local community.  Whilst applications are welcome from across the range of specialisms, those with expertise in Land Law, European Law, Tort Law and clinical legal education are particularly encouraged to apply.
