We are seeking to recruit ambitious individuals who want to forge or continue a meaningful career in teaching and course design in Higher Education. You may or may not have previous experience of teaching and course design, but what is important to us is that you have the drive and enthusiasm to learn.
Teaching in Higher Education can be challenging but rewarding and we are looking to recruit highly motivated individuals who are ready to make a positive contribution. You will be keen to share your expertise and to become involved in all aspects of enhancing the student experience at our Bloomsbury campus. In return, we will guarantee you a supportive and friendly environment where considerable opportunities for learning and career development exist for the right people. Are you ready to join our dynamic team and help contribute to our success?
The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the world’s largest law schools. With an impressive history going back to 1876, we employ c750 staff and have over 9000 students studying on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. ULaw has an outstanding reputation as a full service legal and educational training specialist, operating from thirteen campuses throughout the UK, as well as in Hong Kong and Berlin, with additional global reach through online and face to face provision. We have recently been ranked number one for undergraduate law degree acceptances by UCAS.
Building on unprecedented growth and success across our courses, we continue to have exciting and ambitious plans for expansion and diversification.
We are building on our current expertise in legal practice, criminal law and criminal justice by developing a range of new and exciting criminology programmes. Our LLB with Criminology commenced in September 2018 and our LLB with Criminal Justice commenced in September 2019. We will be introducing two further new degrees – BA Criminology and BA Criminology and Sociology – in September 2020.
We wish to appoint two additional criminologists and one sociologist to contribute to the design and delivery of our criminology and related courses, including the LLB with Criminology, LLB with Criminal Justice, BA Criminology and BA Criminology and Sociology. The focus of these roles is to develop the growing area of criminology, and introduce the area of sociology, within the university and to undertake high quality module design (for both attendance and online courses) and teaching. Our approach to criminology and sociology is critical and contemporary, including dynamic and engaging subject areas such as gender, race, class, cybercrime, urbanisation, globalisation, media, terrorism, migration, green criminology, drugs and zemiology. You will be working with our existing criminologist, as well as our legal academics, including former solicitors and barristers.
One of the criminologist positions will be based at our London Bloomsbury campus. The other criminology position and the sociology position can be based at any of our campuses.
As part of the tutor development programme, we will also support you to study for a recognised teaching qualification within your first 18 months of employment.
