Part time

St Hilda’s College invites applications for two 1-year fixed-term positions in Law. The College proposes to appoint either (i) one Fixed-Term Fellow and one Stipendiary Lecturer, or (ii) two Stipendiary Lectureships, in Law from 1 October 2017.

The tutorial teaching load of the successful appointees will, collectively, be an average of 9 hours per week (in pairs and small classes) of tutorial teaching for St Hilda’s, averaged over three eight-week terms. Each appointee will be expected to teach at least two, and preferably three, of the following subjects for the College: Roman Law, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Tort Law, Contract Law, Trusts, EU Law, and Jurisprudence, to Law undergraduates.

The posts include additional administrative work for the subject and full involvement with undergraduate admissions. The appointees will serve as Personal Tutors to undergraduates and as College Advisers to postgraduates in Law. If the College appoints a Fixed-Term Fellow, this person will also be responsible for the organisation of the Law course during the terms where the Fellow in Law is on sabbatical.

The successful appointees will hold a good first degree in Law (or a related subject) and, preferably, should have, or be close to completing, a doctorate in the subject. Candidates will need to demonstrate tutorial teaching experience and experience with Oxford Undergraduate Admissions would also be an advantage.

The appointees will be paid according to the hours teaching per week as well as experience and qualifications. For example a 3 hour Lectureship would be paid on a scale from £6,513 (point 1) to £6,907 (point 3) per annum, while a 6-hour Fixed Term Fellow would be paid on a scale from £14,226 (point 1) to £15,088 (point 3) per annum (current rates). The successful candidates will also be able to claim a research allowance of £235 per annum and an entertainment allowance of £235 per annum. They will be members of the Senior Common Room, and will be entitled to meals free of charge in term-time.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Monday 26th June 2017. Further particulars, including details of how to apply, may be downloaded below, or obtained from the Academic Registrar, St Hilda’s College, Oxford OX4 1DY (college.office@st-hildas.ox.ac.uk).
