Applications are invited for the post of Assistant Professor (Teaching and Curriculum Leadership) within the School of Law at the University of Nottingham. This is an exciting new role for a candidate with a career commitment to education and student experience who wants to develop into an educational leader. 

You will be expected to develop high quality modules for undergraduates and postgraduates; conduct assessments of student work at all levels; seek grant income for education and student experience activities; and take a leadership role relating to education and student experience in the School.  

As well as your role within the School, you will form part of a new education and student experience ecosystem, a community of practice who will identify, share and embed good practice and will help to coordinate activity and teaching and curriculum leadership across the Faculty. As part of this you will contribute to the development, implementation and delivery of a suite of activities that are core Faculty and institutional priorities. Our priorities include meeting our Access & Participation Plan targets, improving areas in the National Student Survey (NSS) where results are challenging, developing programme level curriculum and assessment redesign, ensuring the welfare needs of our students are met; and working closely with our communities of students to co-create assessment methods, curricula and build communities of staff-student partnerships.

Evidence of a proven track-record of high-quality teaching and curriculum leadership is essential. You must also demonstrate your commitment to pedagogy and professional development as a teacher commensurate with your career stage and experience. 

You must have a PhD in Law or related subject (candidates nearing completion may be considered) OR have appropriate professional qualifications and experience. 

This role is available on a permanent basis. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours) ; however applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part time and the number of preferred hours. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Our success is delivered by our people. We believe that a diverse and supportive environment, bringing different perspectives to our work and allowing people to thrive, is the best platform for excellent teaching and curriculum leadership. We are seeking individuals from the widest possible range of talents and backgrounds, and we will appoint not just based on past achievements, but also on your potential for the future.
