Blavatnik School of Government, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG
The Blavatnik School of Government and Exeter College are recruiting an Associate Professor of Law and Public Policy to join the School from September 2024 (or sooner if possible).
Our vision is of a world better led, a world better served and a world better governed. We are a global school committed to improving the quality of government and public policymaking worldwide, through three routes: teaching current and future leaders ; generating research with impact ; and engaging with governments and practitioners.
As a community committed to this vision of a world better led, better served and better governed, the School teaches current and future leaders to tackle this century's most pressing public policy challenges. We are proud of our academic excellence and independent and academically rigorous research, together with our ability to bring people together across disciplines and sectors to share knowledge, exchange ideas and create solutions.
The Associate Professorship will bring to the School an academic with an emerging global reputation for excellence in an area of law and public policy. You will have a doctorate and be equipped to teach law in an inspiring way to current and future public leaders many of whom are not lawyers, as well as to engage in their area of expertise with expert lawyers. Applications are invited in all areas of law and public policy.
You should have a doctorate in law (or a closely related field); a track record of internationally excellent articles in highly-ranked, peer reviewed academic journals, commensurate with your career stage; an outstanding programme of applied research in law or a closely related field; an established record of public engagement with governments and international organisations on policy issues and an interest in public policy; the ability and willingness to teach innovatively, supervise, and assess high-achieving graduate students with real world professional experience who come from diverse cultural backgrounds; the ability and willingness to develop and teach upon short courses for senior practitioners from diverse cultural backgrounds; and the ability to build the profile of the School in the area of law.
You will be required to undertake research, teaching, policy engagement, and administration. Teaching duties are likely to include: contributing to and convening the core module that focuses on Law and policy on the Master of Public Policy (MPP), teaching on the MSc and/or offering an Option (elective) module on some aspect of public policy in relation to Law, teaching on our executive education programmes, and supervision of MPP, MSc, and doctoral students in the School.
The appointment will be made in association with Exeter College. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the academic life of an engaging and interdisciplinary community which unites students and Faculty at all levels and across a wide range of intellectual approaches.
Further information (including full details about how to apply) is included in the further particulars.
In exceptional cases, where the candidate has previously established an academic standing at an appropriate level of distinction, the title of full professor may be awarded at the time of appointment.
Please upload a full CV, supporting statement, and three current academic reference letters. If you or your referees would prefer, references can be emailed directly to [email protected] by the closing date.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon, Monday 20 November 2023. We will interview in late January 2024.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
We are committed to equality and valuing diversity
