Washburn University has posted an opening for an Assistant Professor of Legal Studies.
I know not everyone can move to Kansas, but when I was first on the market, I even applied to jobs like this one in Kuwait. If you really want to be a professor, you can't let location get in your way. Granted, I know I would have had to use my best negotiating skills to convince my wife to move to Kuwait (or Kansas).
The details of the Washburn University position can be found after the break.
