The Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work on Access to Justice and Digitalisation as part of a larger UKRI-funded project on the Potential for AI in English Law.
The successful appointee will undertake postdoctoral research in the programme Unlocking the Potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for English Law, funded by UKRI via the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
The postholder will have responsibility for carrying out research for Work Package 2 of this programme (Mapping Digital Justice), reporting to and under the direct guidance of the Principal Investigators for this Work Package, Professor Abi Adams-Prassl (Economics) and Professor Jeremias Adams-Prassl (Law). The overall Research Programme runs over 27 months to 31 March 2021. The postholder is expected to work closely with the Principal Investigators, and to coordinate with Principal Investigators and junior members of the other Work Packages in the Research Programme.
The successful candidate will conduct research on the themes above as directed by the Principal Investigators of the Mapping Digital Justice Work Package. S/he under the direct guidance of the Principal Investigators will manage their own academic research and administrative activities. This will involve small scale project management, to coordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines for fieldwork and conference/workshop presentations. S/he will be required to liaise with Principal Investigators and research staff across disciplines in other Work Packages in the AI for English Law programme and colleagues in private sector partner organisations to prepare appropriate course content.
