Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 per annum

The MSc in Law and Finance (‘MLF’) is a one-year taught Master’s degree, which offers students with a prior background in law the chance to develop an advanced interdisciplinary understanding of relevant economic and financial contexts. Owing to anticipated pandemic-related adjustment measures, the Faculty of Law seeks additional teaching support for the MLF programme for the 2020-21 academic year, in the form of a new fixed-term Departmental Lecturer.

The Faculty of Law consequently seeks to appoint a Departmental Lecturer to provide teaching support for the MLF teaching team, especially the MLF core course of Law and Economics of Corporate Transactions (‘LECT’). In relation to the LECT course, the appointee will assist the convenor – Professor Thom Wetzer – with the development of new course materials and provide ongoing support with the provision of education. It is also anticipated that the successful appointee will assist with small-group teaching in one or more MLF elective courses delivered by the Faculty of Law, such as Principles of Financial Regulation and/or Corporate Finance Law, and will provide support to the MLF team more broadly.

The successful candidate should have a doctorate in a relevant subject, or an established record of accomplishment in research and a record of high-quality research and publication in Law and Finance commensurate with the applicant’s career experience; the ability to provide outstanding teaching to high-achieving students in the taught post-graduate  programmes and especially in the MLF programme; administrative and pastoral skills, to work co-operatively with University and college administration and to deal effectively with the pastoral needs of graduate students. A familiarity with the transactional practice of corporate and financial law / economic and financial analysis of corporate finance, corporate governance, and/or securities market regulation is desirable.

The post is full time and fixed term until 30 September 2021

The post will be based at the Law Faculty, St Cross Building, St Cross Road, Oxford, OX1 3UL.

The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 23 October 2020.  Interviews will be held as soon as possible after the closing date.

Please arrange for two references to be sent to by the closing date.
