The Department of Law is looking to appoint a Project Manager for the Jean Monnet Network on ‘EU China Legal and Judicial Cooperation’. The successful candidate will be responsible for the day to day project management of EUPLANT under the supervision of the Principle Investigator.

EUPLANT assesses the extent to which legal transplants and enhanced judicial cooperation can lead to an increased regulatory convergence between the Chinese and EU legal frameworks. Against the background of what some regard as a deterioration of rule of law and increased pressures on civil society and the legal profession in China, EUPLANT assesses both the risks and opportunities of judicial and wider legal cooperation.

Candidates must have the ability to operate in a multicultural research project and have experience in collaborating in subcultural teams. Candidates should also have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to establish good working relationships with a variety of stakeholders. Strong IT and analytical skills are also essential to this role.

Experience of project management, working with both internal and external stakeholders would be an advantage.

The post is a part time, fixed term position until August 2021. Starting salary will be in the range £27,251 - £31,054 pro rata per annum inclusive of London Allowance.  Benefits include 30 days annual leave (pro rata), an interest-free season ticket loan, and a pension scheme. 

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.
