Programmatic Tenure Position
STETSON UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW seeks to fill one or more tenured/tenure-track and programmatic tenure track positions for the 2012-2013 academic year. Appointments may be lateral or entry-level.
Located in Florida's Tampa Bay area, the nation's nineteenth largest metro area, Stetson was established in 1900 and is Florida's oldest law school. Our main campus is in Gulfport, just outside St. Petersburg. We also have a part-time program with classes on both the main campus and our satellite campus in downtown Tampa. Stetson has earned a national reputation for its advocacy, elder law, legal writing, and higher education programs, and has Centers for Excellence in Advocacy, Elder Law, Higher Education Law and Policy, and International Law. Stetson nurtures a vibrant intellectual community, situated on a beautiful campus. We encourage potential applicants to visit our website at http://www.law.stetson.edu to learn more about our school, our community, and our programs.
For a programmatic tenure-track position, we welcome applications from candidates interested in teaching in our Academic Success Program. This program helps students adjust to the rigors of law school and supports students who encounter academic difficulty. Responsibilities include teaching critical reading and thinking, rule synthesis, outlining, legal analysis, and exam preparation.
Stetson encourages applications from women, minorities, and others who will facilitate a stimulating and diverse cultural and intellectual environment. All applicants must have a strong academic record and be committed to outstanding teaching, scholarship, and service. The Faculty Appointments Committee will begin reviewing applications on or before August 15, 2011 and will invite some candidates to interview during the AALS 2011 Faculty Recruitment Conference in Washington, D.C., although interviews may also take place at other times and locations.
Contact: Applicants should send an email, attaching a current curriculum vitae together with a cover letter indicating teaching and scholarly interests, and details of at least three professional references, to Professor Paul Boudreaux and Professor Candace Zierdt, Co-Chairs, Faculty Appointments Committee, at [email protected].
