Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences

Faculty of Law

Project Coordinator (Part-time; Fixed Term)

The Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences (LML) seeks to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated researcher to provide research, general management and administrative assistance to the Director and Deputy Director of LML.

LML works on local, national and international projects about legal and ethical challenges at the forefront of medicine and the life sciences.

The position is not a typical research position. It would suit an individual interested in research co-ordination and dissemination, and who can identify and deliver the support that LML's senior and mid-career researchers need. People previously working in the position have gone on to apply for PhD study at various institutions. The position would also suit an experienced academic or lawyer seeking to return to work after a career break.

The position requires (at least) a degree in law, achieving overall at least an upper second class (2.1), or equivalent classing. It is also desirable to have completed a course in medical law, or a similar subject with social policy/justice emphases, achieving at least an upper second class (2.1).

It is also essential that applicants can write clearly, succinctly and swiftly.

Start date: 4 Jan 2023 (negotiable).

Length of appointment: 12 months (initially)

Application deadline: 17 December 2022
