The University of Portsmouth is a dynamic and ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework, it is also ranked 21st in the 2020 Guardian League Table University Guide, and 113th in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.

The School of Civil Engineering and Surveying (SCES) at the University of Portsmouth invites applications for the post of Teaching Fellow in Law to contribute to the established professionally accredited programmes offered in the School. We welcome applications from those with expertise in
  • Tort Law and Contract Law; or
  • Land Law and Landlord and Tenant Law.
SCES is seeking experienced, motivated individuals able to inspire undergraduate and postgraduate students in the delivery of our courses. This is an exciting opportunity to join SCES in a role that brings together commercial experience and academia. Development of employable graduates is at the heart of our School and applicants would be encouraged to bring industry/professional practice in support of the delivery of their teaching to provide an outstanding experience for our students.

Applicants should ideally have an awareness of the current trends and developments in legal issues relevant to property and/or construction professionals and enthusiasm for the development of innovative teaching initiatives, including the development of on-line learning materials.

The School has an excellent staff-student relationship and healthy undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment representing a broad range of professionally accredited courses, reinforced by excellent links with both commercial practice and professional institutions. Professional applicants are welcomed and full support will be provided to develop academic and teaching skills through the Academic Professional Excellence Framework.

The University supports flexible working and the panel are willing to consider applications from candidates who wish to work part time. Please state in your reasons for applying if you wish to apply for this role on a part time basis, and the number of hours you would be interested in working if so.

We welcome applications from all qualified applicants, but applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups. The University of Portsmouth holds an Athena Swan bronze award and is committed to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality and create a better working environment for all. The School is supportive of flexible working and is willing to consider arrangements for those with caring responsibilities. The University of Portsmouth's teaching has achieved the highest possible 'Gold' rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework in recognition of the excellence of its teaching.

Applications from candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and all appointments will be made on merit. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.
