The University of Kansas School of Law invites applications from entry level and junior lateral candidates for two tenure-track, associate professor positions to begin fall 2022. We will consider candidates in all subject areas, but are particularly interested in the areas of (1) property and (2) business, corporate finance, and transactional law, as well as candidates whose work engages these subjects in dialogue with other areas of law. Qualified candidates who will contribute to the diversity of our law school community, including a diversity of scholarly approaches, are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants must possess a J.D. from an accredited U.S. law school or equivalent degree, and must demonstrate strong scholarly potential and a commitment to excellence in teaching. The School actively seeks applications from members of groups that are underrepresented in higher education.
Review of applications begins in August and will continue until the positions are filled. Initial interviews will be conducted via Zoom. We will review candidate materials posted in the AALS Faculty Appointments Register (FAR), and also invite applications from candidates not participating in the FAR. Applications must be submitted online:
- Property area: https://employment.ku.edu/
- Business area: https://employment.ku.edu/
and should include a cover letter, a CV/resume, a detailed statement of research interests and future plans, a statement related to diversity, a writing sample, and the names of three references. Materials such as teaching evaluations or additional samples of scholarly work may be requested of candidates at a later date. For fullest consideration, candidates not participating in the FAR should apply by August 25, 2021.
