Visiting Assistant Professor-Murphy Institute

Weinmann Hall
Open Date:
Jun 1, 2021

Tulane Law School is currently accepting applications for a two-year position of visiting assistant professor.  The position is being supported by the Murphy Institute at Tulane (, 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 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).  It is also designed for individuals who plan to apply for tenure-track law school positions during the second year of the professorship.  The law school will provide significant informal support for such. 


Candidates will be evaluated upon the following nonexclusive criteria:

  • Academic credentials

  • Scholarship

  • References

  • Committee interviews

The person selected for the position will be expected to participate in scholarly activities at the law school and at the Murphy Institute, including faculty workshops, and will be expected to teach a law school course or seminar in three of the four semesters of the professorship (presumably the last three semesters). The annual salary for the position is $75,000 plus eligibility for benefits.

Application Instructions:

All applicants are required to provide the following documents:

  • CV, including three references

  • Academic transcripts (post-graduate)

  • Electronic copies of scholarship completed or in-progress
