We currently invite applications for one tenure stream appointment and one full-year term appointment, anticipated to be at the Assistant Professor level. The starting date for the tenure stream appointment will be January 1, 2013, or earlier if the preferred candidate is available. The full-year term position will commence July 1, 2012. Both positions are subject to budgetary approval.
JOB QUALIFICATIONS: The Faculty welcomes applications from outstanding scholars with diverse perspectives and will consider an appointment in any field of expertise, though our current priorities are particularly in the areas of administrative law (with knowledge of complementary public law fields) and corporate/commercial law (with knowledge of complementary private law fields).
