Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow in Experiential Learning and Unmet Legal Needs within the Civil Justice System.

Strathclyde Global Talent Programme

Be bold.  Be innovative.  Be a 'Strathclyder'

We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.

Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellows - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Experiential Learning and Unmet Legal Needs within the Civil Justice System. 

This multi-disciplinary research area combines doctrinal inquiry and socio-legal methodology to address the urgent social need for more accessible legal interventions and remedies for litigants within local, national and international communities. It matches the acquisition of skills and knowledge related to Scottish and common law legal systems with experience–based learning to provide ground breaking legal education, improve end- user experience and produce impactful public policy outcomes. 

Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment.  You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.

You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus.  You must be able to articulate your research vision.
