Visiting Assistant Professor

Job description

Visiting Assistant Professor

Location:
New Orleans, Louisiana
Open Date:
Jan 1, 2019
Description:

Tulane Law School invites applications for a two-year visiting assistant professorship (VAP). The position is designed for promising scholars who plan to apply for tenure-track law school positions. The VAP is full-time faculty in the law school and is encouraged to participate in all aspects of the intellectual life of the school. The law school provides significant support, both formal and informal, including faculty mentors, a professional travel budget, and opportunities to present works-in-progress in various settings.

The professorship is supported by the Murphy Institute at Tulane (http://murphy.tulane.edu), an interdisciplinary unit specializing in political economy and ethics that draws faculty from the university’s departments of economics, philosophy, history, and political science. The position entails teaching a law school course or seminar in three of the four semesters of the professorship (presumably the last three semesters). It is designed for scholars focusing on regulation of economic activity very broadly construed (including, for example, research with a methodological or analytical focus relevant to scholars of regulation). In addition to participating in the intellectual life of the law school, the VAP will be expected to participate in scholarly activities at the Murphy Institute. Candidates should apply through Interfolio, at http://apply.interfolio.com/59420, providing a CV identifying at least three references, post-graduate transcripts, electronic copies of any scholarship completed or in-progress, and a letter explaining their teaching interests and their research agenda. If you have any questions, please contact Adam Feibelman at [email protected]

The law school aims to fill this position by March 2019. Tulane is an equal opportunity employer and encourages women and members of minority communities to apply.
