Closing date: Monday 28 April

Dr Tarun Khaitan is looking for a research assistant to help him with a couple of projects relating to discrimination law over the summer of 2014.

Duration and hours
The work is to start immediately and will run until 30 September 2014.
The hours will vary, but on the whole you will be expected to work around 50-70 hours over the course of the summer. You will not be required to work for more than 8 hours in any given week.
There is some flexibility to accommodate a period of non-availability (up to a month) earlier in the summer (around June/July).
The post will report to Dr Khaitan.
A reasonable understanding of discrimination/equality law in any common-law jurisdiction is essential.
Some knowledge of the Indian legal system or philosophical foundations of any discrete area of law (eg philosophical foundations of tort law) is desirable.
Good admin and IT skills are essential.
This post is open to current research students in the Law Faculty and the hours are in line with the restrictions on working hours for students. The work can be done in any place where you have access to a good library, but you must be able to travel to Oxford for frequent meetings during the summer break.
