Applications open for 2013 PhD Teaching Fellowships

Adelaide Law School is delighted to announce that in 2013 it will be offering a number of Teaching Fellowships to Doctoral candidates within the school.

For many of our PhD students, their Doctoral study is a pathway to an academic career. However, while completion of a PhD is an excellent training in research, it does not necessarily equip candidates for another important aspect of academic work – teaching. The new Teaching Fellowship program will fill this gap. Completion of a Fellowship will provide a PhD candidate with the opportunity to engage in a formal process of teacher development and training concurrent with their PhD studies.

Each Fellowship will include mentoring by senior academics, a comprehensive program of teacher training and full inclusion in the intellectual life of the Law School. Teaching Fellows will also be guaranteed teaching experience (4 hours per week per semester for a full-time PhD candidate). This will allow Fellows to develop their teaching skills through experience and also provide a predictable additional source of income and the financial stability to allow Fellows to focus on their PhD research. Completion of a Teaching Fellowship will add another dimension to PhD candidature at Adelaide Law School and will contribute to the professional development of PhD candidates interested in pursuing an academic career in law.
Applications for Teaching Fellowships commencing in 2013 will accepted from online here.
until 15 February 2013.

Applicants must be enrolled in a PhD or have received an unconditional offer to enrol in a PhD at Adelaide Law School at the time of application. If you have any questions about the Teaching Fellowships, please contact Anne Hewitt on
