Researcher for the project, “A new history of law in post-revolutionary England (c. 1689-1760)”

Applications for this vacancy closed on 14 January 2022 at 12:00PM
This project seeks to recover and reassess the general history of English law
during the seven decades following the Glorious Revolution of 1688-89, when
limited monarchy, parliamentary government and the rule of law became new
constitutional norms for an emergent imperial British state (and, eventually,
for much of its global empire). The project aims to chart the modes of law and
governance variously experienced, created and used by lay men and women,
husbands, wives and children, as well as by judges, lawyers, legislators and
ministers. The results of this major conceptual advance, reinterpreting the
history of English law and government in the broadest possible way, will
appear as Volume IX in the _Oxford History of the Laws of England_ series.





Reporting to the Co-Investigator Dr Mike Macnair, the post holder will have
responsibility for the provision of research support in the next phase of the
work - in particular in relation to the law relating to property in land.
Depending on the researcher’s skillset, the tasks involved may focus either
primarily on printed sources, or on manuscript sources, for the period; the
identification and use of relevant secondary literature will also be
important.





The successful candidate should hold a first degree, together with some
relevant experience; hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD/DPhil in Law or
History; possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the sub-discipline of
legal history (and/ or of the law of real property) to work within established
research programmes; be able to manage their own research and administrative
activities; excellent communication skills, including the ability to write
text that can be published, present data at conferences, and represent the
research group at meetings. Experience of contributing to research
publications, working in a research team, and contributing ideas for new
research projects is desirable.





The post is part time (0.5 FTE) and fixed term for 6 months. Subject to Covid
restrictions, the postholder will be based at the Manor Road Building, Centre
for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford.





You will be required to submit a covering letter and CV, and a sample of
recent written work, as part of your application. Written work should be sent
to recruitment@law.ox.ac.uk by the closing date.





Shortlisted applicants will be asked to arrange for three references to be
submitted before the interviews take place.





Closing date for applications is midday on Friday 14 January 2022.
