FULLY FUNDED DOCTORAL RESEARCH POST & GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANT AT THE LIVERPOOL LAW SCHOOL (BUSINESS / COMMERCIAL LAW)
The Liverpool Law School invites applications for a fully funded doctoral research post & graduate teaching assistant commencing on Monday 21 September 2009.
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 general field of research within which candidates should wish to conduct their research is business / commercial law (broadly construed). In any case, 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.
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 (£3,390 FT in 2009/2010); plus a full maintenance grant per annum fixed at the AHRC level (£13,290 in 2009/2010).
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: firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 17 August 2009. Please note that shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview in Liverpool, including the opportunity to meet with their prospective supervisor(s).
