Recognising that diversity is important in achieving excellence, Rhodes University especially encourages South African members of underrepresented designated groups to apply. Spouses and Partners of existing staff members are also encouraged to apply.
Please note that this appointment will be made in line with the requirements of the Employment Equity Act of RSA and the University’s recruitment and selection policies and equity strategies. The initial focus will be on equity candidates.
In terms of Immigration Legislation (Act No. 13 of 2002 & Regulations), international staff members (non-SA citizens) have to comply with the provisions of the Act. This therefore means that the period of employment to non-SA citizens will be guided by the validity period of the work permit. In line with legislation governing employment of foreign nationals, employment contracts will be offered on the basis that a development plan would be implemented for the transfer of skills to a South African resident. The onus is on candidates to ensure that they are in possession of a valid work permit before the commencement of employment at the University, failing which the employment with Rhodes University will be terminated.
NB: Preference will be given to candidates from the designated group and Rhodes University reserves the right to re-advertise if no suitably qualified South African Black applicant is recommended for appointment.
Lecturer Level: At least an LLM degree, normally preceded by a LLB degree from a South African university. Tutoring or facilitation experience and commitment to a career in academia is required. Interest and/or expertise in Introductory Studies of Law or Law of Property. Experience as a legal practitioner will be a distinct advantage.
