Lecturer in Law
Grade 7 £32,548 - £38,833
Full Time

Abertay is a modern university with a global outlook, rooted in its local and national communities. We have made our mark with high quality, well-directed teaching and research, and a stimulating and enriching experience for our students.

The University is looking to appoint two lecturers who can contribute to the delivery of its LLB(Hons) programme which is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates. While any area of expertise within the accredited programme requirements will be considered, an interest in one of contract law, the law of delict, and Scottish property law would be particularly welcome.

The Dundee Business School provides management education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.  Students benefit from employer involvement in our programmes, which have a strong emphasis on business simulation and workplace experience. 

Within the School the Division delivers an undergraduate LLB (Hons) programme and contributes to the delivery of law content across other parts of the University. Our programme has a strong emphasis on the development of transferable skills along with the academic discipline of law and we are ranked 39 throughout the UK in the Complete University Guide 2016. Our NSS 2015 results produced an overall satisfaction rate of 100% making it the highest rated law programme in Scotland.  The Division supervises a number of PhD candidates and there is an established research culture which led to successful submissions to the REF2014 and RAE2008. This is an excellent opportunity to contribute to the further development of the Division.

Reporting to the Head of School and Head of Division of Law you provide teaching input to undergraduate and potentially postgraduate teaching while taking a leading role in fostering and developing the research culture within the law division through your own research and by mentoring others. 

The role requires excellent organisational, team working and communication skills, the ability to develop and lead a programme of research, a commitment to teaching and the ability to work across disciplines and organisations.
