The Research and Course Development Fellow will undertake research and the
development of teaching in the programme Unlocking the Potential of Artificial
Intelligence (AI) for English Law, funded by the UK Economic and Social
Research Council (ESRC). Reporting to the Principal Investigator, Professor
John Armour and working directly with the Co-Investigators and leaders for
this work package, Professor Rebecca Williams (Law) and Professor Ewart Keep

unlock its potential for good.

deliver innovative course materials for (i) university students and (ii)
professionals, drawing on the results of analysis of educational need. S/he

private sector partner organisations to prepare appropriate course content,
and will assist in structuring pilot courses to capture survey and other data
from participants regarding their efficacy.



Applicants should hold, or be nearing completion of, a relevant PhD/DPhil in
law, education, computer science, or other relevant discipline, together with
relevant experience; have excellent research skills and the ability to
contribute, under the direction of the Principal Investigators, to the design,
analysis and writing of scholarly articles, papers and monographs, as
evidenced in research training and written work and a professional familiarity
with scholarly literature and debates in the relevant area(s), as evidenced in
research training and written work.



The post is full-time and fixed-term until 31 December 2020.
