Help wanted: One Chancellor

Here's the job announcement as posted on the employment section of the Delaware Courts' website.

There are requirements of political balance under the Delaware Constitution Art. IV ยง 3 and, in this case, the appointee must be either a Republican (including a current judicial officer who is a Republican) or a Democrat who is a current Vice Chancellor or Supreme Court Justice.  There also is a requirement that the appointee be a resident of the State of Delaware.  There are no other geographical requirements for this office.  The position provides a current annual salary of $185,750.  The Commission solicits candidates for this office.    

Candidates for Chancellor also will be simultaneously considered by the Commission for a potential derivative vacancy in the office of Vice Chancellor if a sitting Vice Chancellor is nominated to be Chancellor.  In the event a  sitting Vice Chancellor is nominated to be Chancellor, the Commission may not solicit further applications for the office of Vice Chancellor.  Applicants for Vice Chancellor must be a resident of the State of Delaware and a Republican (including a current judicial officer who is a Republican) or a Democrat who is a current Supreme Court Justice.  There are no other geographical requirements for the office of Vice Chancellor.  The position provides a current annual salary of $174,950.  

In the event a sitting member of a court other than the Court of Chancery is appointed to the office of Chancellor or to  a derivative vacancy in the office of Vice Chancellor, the Commission will provide a separate notice soliciting candidates for the vacancy caused thereby.  

Delaware residents only!
