Subject: ODG: Chair of Comparative Law

Dear Colleagues:

I post on behalf of Bill Swadling:

University of Oxford
Linklaters Professorship of Comparative Law in association with Brasenose College

The Linklaters Professorship of Comparative Law will provide leadership in teaching and research at the highest level in the comparative study of legal systems, national or transnational. The post generously supported by Linklaters LLP.

JOB DESCRIPTION: The successful candidate will engage in research, lecture and give instruction, supervise doctoral students, provide academic leadership and examine. She or he will also undertake administrative duties for the Faculty and the College, including, for the Faculty, the Institute of European and Comparative Law.

JOB QUALIFICATIONS: Although expertise in the comparison of any aspect of law, both public law and private law, is welcome, the holder of the chair should have expertise in civil law systems (as opposed to common law systems). Candidates must have an outstanding record of scholarship and research in the field of the post, an excellent publication record and the potential to produce further significant work, the ability to teach and supervise, proven or potential intellectual leadership skills, and the ability to contribute effectively to the long-term development of the study of Law in the Faculty and in the wider academic community. Administrative and pastoral skills and a willingness to participate fully in the activities of the Institute of European and Comparative Law are desirable.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Deadline for applications: Monday 13 July 2015. For more details about the post and full application instructions, see

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
Committed to equality and valuing diversity.
