We welcome enquiries and applications from potential postdoctoral fellows.
The Department of Law at Queen Mary University of London encourages outstanding postdoctoral scholars to register their interest in applying to the 2018 round of the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship Scheme. The School of Law is comprised of two organisational units (The Department of Law and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies).
Our diverse community of postdoctoral award holders are an important part of the School of Law’s community, playing a vital part in creating our dynamic research environment. They join faculty with expertise in Criminal Justice, State Crime, Human Rights, Public and International Law and Legal Theory with geographic specialities across the globe in these areas.
We have a number of world-leading research centres located within the Department in the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC), The International State Crime Initiative (ISCI),The Centre for European and International Legal Affairs (CEILA), The Criminal Justice Centre (CJC), The Human Rights Collegium, Interdisciplinary Centre for Competition Law and Policy (ICC), Centre for Research on Law, Equality and Diversity (LEAD), Centre for Small States (CSS), and the Centre for Law, Democracy and Society (CLDS)
Many of these research centres, alongside the Department, host a wide range of department-based and interdisciplinary lectures, seminars and workshops and offer links with a variety of London-based law firms, NGO’s and cultural institutions. Moreover the Department is committed to research-based public engagement.
Details of the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship scheme and eligibility criteria can be found on the Leverhulme webpage.
We would be delighted to hear from postdoctoral candidates working in relevant subject areas who are considering applying to the scheme, and would be happy to offer support and feedback in preparing applications.
