Lecturers in Commercial Law

The School of Law at Leeds is a successful, collegial law school strongly committed to achieving excellence in both student education and research. We are looking to appoint to a commercial Lectureship, for someone who shares our commitment to collegiality and excellence in research and education. 

Research excellence is an important part of what the School is about. We were ranked 8th overall in the UK for the quality of our research in REF 2014 and 4th for the impact of our research on society. We have continued to invest to strengthen further our research centres. We are equally proud of our results in the National Student Survey over the last few years and student education lies at the heart of all we do. We are seeking to appoint as colleagues, people with a strong research and teaching profile to complement our existing research strengths in corporate, commercial and banking law. The successful candidates will contribute to the national and international profile and standing of the Centre for Business Law and Practice which is one of the School’s highly successful research centres.

The post is open to those with expertise in commercial law broadly conceived. Applications are particularly welcome from those who research and / or teach in the areas of commercial dispute resolution, the private law of international trade, contract management, tax and corporate law.

As a research active academic, you will be expected to maintain a strong research and publication record, and to enhance the School’s research activities and research culture.  

You will deliver undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules in appropriate subject areas, as well as supervising dissertations and PhD candidates. You will also be expected to undertake a normal load of administrative duties within the School and work within the context of University values and policies, which are designed to promote dignity, diversity and inclusiveness.

The appointment offers considerable potential for personal initiative and fulfilment through work within a centre of research excellence and a growing law school.

We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the School at this level.

We will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible.

As part of your application, please could you submit copies of your three strongest publications? These should represent your best work in terms of originality, significance and rigour and both should be published since January 2014. One could be a draft that has been submitted or is close to submission.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact:
