UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LEVIN COLLEGE OF LAW welcomes applications from tenured lateral candidates to be hired as part of the University of Florida’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative. The Levin College of Law particularly seeks two nationally recognized scholars writing at the intersection of law and artificial intelligence in the FinTech and Social Justice spaces, respectively. This campus-wide program recruits cutting-edge scholars to the University of Florida to engage in cross-disciplinary research using one of the fastest artificial intelligence supercomputers in higher education. The College of Law faculty are expected to engage in teaching, scholarship and service.

Successful candidates will have strong publication records, commitment to teaching excellence, and enthusiasm for creating inclusive environments for all students.  Because of the cross-disciplinary nature of the AI Initiative, the Appointment Committee will prioritize scholars with a demonstrated ability to work with other colleges at the university – with the Colleges of Engineering and Business for the FinTech position and with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Education, and College of Journalism and Communications (among others) for the Social Justice position.  Previous experience on cross-disciplinary federally funded grants and/or an enthusiasm for providing legal and policy analysis to support federally funded grant projects is vital. 


Candidates must also have a JD, PhD, or equivalent degree in a related field.
