Building on the success of the previous REF (joint first for the excellence of our research) York Law School (YLS) is seeking to appoint a Chair in Law. The post reflects the continued growth of YLS, and we welcome interest from exceptional scholars with research interests that fit within our research clusters:
We are looking for an outstanding individual with an international reputation who can lead both research and teaching. In return we offer staff a supportive, nurturing environment. A key characteristic of the research at YLS is our strong multi-disciplinary focus and support for our staff, not only by collegiate colleagues, but through University wide initiatives such as the University Research Champions and the Research Centre for Social Sciences.
As the only Law School in the UK to base our undergraduate degrees on problem-based learning (PBL), we offer a distinctive and dynamic approach to teaching and learning. In the 2014 REF, the School placed in joint first for the excellence of its research, 4th for its impact, and 5th overall. The University and Law School are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community - a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff from different backgrounds.
