IP professor needed in Glasgow!


The 1709 Blog's friend and eminent scholar Professor Lionel Bently of the University of Cambridge wishes to bring to its readers' attention an exciting opportunity which has recently arisen at the University of Glasgow. 
The School of Law is seeking to appoint a professor to strengthen its REF submission in the field of intellectual property law and copyright law, and to be the Director of a newly established RCUK-funded research centre: the Centre for Creativity, Regulation, Enterprise and Technology (CREATe). 
A pair of these comes
with the application pack
CREATe is an £8m research centre to be established with initial funding of £5m from RCUK. This interdisciplinary research centre will engage with key research challenges in the creative economy relating to copyright, new business models, and digital transformations. While based at the University of Glasgow, CREATe draws upon a consortium of research expertise from 7 participating HEIs throughout the UK (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Goldsmiths, Nottingham, St Andrews, Strathclyde and UEA).
The successful candidate will divide their time equally between the running of CREATe and other academic activities within the School of Law.
Further details about this yummy vacancy can be found here.
The closing date for applications is 15 June and interviews shall take place on 27 June. So: hurry up and apply!
Good luck to all the applicants and, to those who will be shortlisted and invited for an interview: do not forget to bring your rain jackets to Scotland!

From 31 degree Scotland, one seems to recall that April and most of May gave drought-stricken England little but Jupiter Pluvius, while Scotland, alas, had to rely on wind power. I believe rain is not unknown elsewhere in northern Europe as well!
