The Faculty is offering Graduate Teaching Assistantships for 2019-20 in the following FHS subjects:

Advanced Criminal Law
Competition Law and Policy
Criminology
Family Law
Human Rights Law
Intellectual Property
Medical Law and Ethics
Moral and Political Philosophy
Public International Law

Each GTA will be paid an honorarium of £2,010 by the Faculty (paid in three termly instalments).  The GTA is expected to provide up to 48 hours of undergraduate tutorial teaching and/or provide teaching support over the course of the academic year.  They may work up to the weekly limit on paid work specified by the Faculty (8 hours per week, or a common sense average across the year), which includes preparation and marking time.  The teaching itself will be paid for by colleges at the Senior Tutors' Committee rates (from £27 per tutorial hour).  Colleges will also pay for collection setting and marking. 

If required by the Convenor, the GTA role may also include tasks not directly connected to the GTA's own teaching, such as: answering queries from students on behalf of the Convenor, organising tutorials for other tutors, or updating the core reading list.  Such work will be agreed at the time of appointment and payment will be made upon the submission of approved timesheets.  It will be remunerated by the Faculty at our standard RA rate (currently £15.10 per hour). 

To apply, please write by e-mail to geraldine.malloy@law.ox.ac.uk by 12 noon on Tuesday 27 August 2019 enclosing a CV and a covering letter which should clearly indicate for which of the subject or subjects (from the ones listed above) you wish to be considered.  Although previous teaching experience will not be required, applicants should demonstrate evidence of aptitude for teaching if they are able to do so.  Applicants must have completed the Faculty's Preparation for Teaching and Learning at Oxford programme.  Applicants must also arrange for two referees to write directly to geraldine.malloy@law.ox.ac.uk by the same deadline. 

Applications and references will be sent to the relevant Convenor, and eligible candidates will be interviewed by a panel, with at least two members of the teaching group.  In the event of any subject having a large number of applicants, the subject group members may draw up a shortlist and only interview the shortlisted candidates.

Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application as soon as possible.
