Applications are invited for a permanent post at Level 7 : The Stefan Cross Professor of Employment & Gender Discrimination Law.
The Law School at Southampton University invites applications for a sponsored Chair in Gender Discrimination Law (Level 7). The Law School is a vibrant, research-led department that is undergoing a period of expansion and development. We are seeking an outstanding researcher in the area of Employment Law, with a focus on Gender Discrimination Law, who will use strong leadership skills to further develop the School’s research profile while also enhancing our educational provision.
This sponsored Chair is funded initially for a period of six years. The person appointed will be expected to pursue research focused on Gender Discrimination Law, primarily in the context of employment, where the term ‘gender discrimination’ is construed in relation to the Equality Act 2010 and the relevant protected characteristics thereunder, including equal pay. Funding is also available for a part-time research assistant, and it is anticipated that the Stefan Cross Professor will participate in the process of appointing a person to that post with a view to establishing a research centre in this dynamic area of law.
Research in the School currently clusters around several areas including Criminal Justice (ICJR), Law and the Web (ILAWS), Health Ethics and Law (HEAL), Maritime Law (IML), Law Ethics and Globalisation (LEAG) and Insurance Law (ILRG), as well as lone and collaborative scholarship in numerous other fields. The University more generally promotes inter-disciplinary research and several members of the Law School benefit from the exciting inter-disciplinary culture that prevails.
The successful applicant will be a high achiever who has made a significant contribution to research, teaching and public debate, and will have an established record of outstanding legal research and publication at an international level. You will also be expected to have demonstrated an ability to raise funding, and a willingness to provide academic leadership in all areas, as well as preparedness to work with a range of disciplines and stakeholders, nationally and internationally.
