Clinical faculty fellow opportunity at Washington University School of Law

Thanks to Professor Robert R. Kuehn for passing this along. Here are the details:

WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications for its Clinic Faculty Fellows program. The fellowship is designed to train talented lawyers to obtain an academic teaching post, ideally including clinical teaching, and to help provide teaching coverage in the School’s Clinical Education Program. The fellowship will provide mentoring to help the fellow develop clinical pedagogical skills and produce academic scholarship.

The fellow’s teaching assignment will be in the Criminal Justice Clinic (with Professor Peter Joy) and may include a course outside the clinic. In the Clinic, the Fellow will supervise students providing trial-level representation to persons charged with misdemeanors and felonies and teach a classroom component. Candidates should have significant experience practicing criminal law, demonstrate promise as a legal scholar and teacher, and have a commitment to pursuing a career in legal academia. Candidates must be eligible to practice law in Missouri (i.e., must be a member of the Missouri bar or eligible for admission as a law teacher without examination pursuant to Missouri Supreme Court Rule 13.06). Fellows receive a competitive salary along with employee benefits and support for research.

The fellow will be appointed for two academic years beginning July 1, 2013. The fellow is expected to participate in the entry-level teaching market beginning in fall 2014. The School’s prior fellows have obtained tenure-track positions at other schools.

Applicants should submit a resume, law school transcript, references, and brief description of the candidate’s scholarly agenda or interest in entering academia. 

Washington University School of Law is committed to diversity and encourages applications from racial and ethnic groups, women, persons with disabilities, and other under-represented groups.

Submit application to: Professor Robert Kuehn, Associate Dean for Clinical Programs, Washington University School of Law, One Brookings Drive, Campus Box 1120, St. Louis, MO 63130-4899; rkuehn@wulaw.wustl.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
