The Liverpool Law School invites applications for a fully funded doctoral research post & graduate teaching assistant commencing on Monday 20 September 2010.
Candidates should have a good first degree in Law (or a related discipline) and have completed (or be near to completing) a postgraduate degree in Law at Masters or an equivalent level. The proposed doctoral project should fall within the expertise of an existing staff member capable of acting as primary supervisor: see http://www.liv.ac.uk/law/staff/index.htm for full details.
Interested students are invited to contact relevant staff members directly with a view to discussing potential projects.
The post is funded over a 4 year period: two years of part-time MPhil registration combined with teaching and research skills training; then (depending on successful upgrade) two years of full-time PhD registration, during which the post-holder will continue to teach for the Law School. Previous teaching experience (while desirable) is not required; candidates should be willing to undertake tutorials in one or more core / foundation subjects. Some summative assessment marking may also be required, according to the Law School’s needs. Over this period, the Law School will pay all part-time and full-time University fees at the home / EU level (£3,466 FT in 2010/2011); plus a full maintenance grant per annum fixed at the AHRC level (£13,590 in 2010/2011).
Candidates should send a letter of application, an up-to-date CV and their detailed research proposal to Ms Barbara Bryan (Liverpool Law School, Liverpool L69 7ZS; email: babryan@liv. ac.uk) by Monday 16 August 2010. Please note that shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview in Liverpool, including the opportunity to meet with their prospective supervisor(s). Details of the Law School’s teaching
