We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified person to undertake internationally leading research in any area of socio-legal studies. The Research Fellow will be part of a lively and stimulating research community, which produces research and publications of the highest international standards.
The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies is a multi-disciplinary research institute dedicated to the study of law in society. Founded in 1972, it is known nationally and internationally for its innovative and original research and publications. Current researchers are engaged in work on constitutions, courts and justice systems, regulation and governance, and media and information law, adopting theoretical, historical, sociological and anthropological approaches.
The Fellow will be expected to carry out his or her own programme of work at the centre, and to play a full part in its intellectual life, as well as contributing to the training of research students. The successful candidate will have a doctorate or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline which might include, but is not limited to, law, sociology, political science, history, economics, anthropology, and psychology. This post is available to start no later than 1 October 2013, and is fixed-term for three years.
Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Friday 25 January can be considered. Interviews will take place in late February or early March 2013.
