Texas Tech Seeks Professors, Torts Is a Priority

Texas Tech University School of Law anticipates filling two doctrinal faculty positions beginning with the 2023-24 academic year. These positions are open to candidates who would be on the tenure-track or who are tenured at another law school. We welcome applications from exceptional candidates in all subject matter areas, but our projected curricular needs—while varied—will likely include courses in areas such as Constitutional Law, Civil Rights, Torts, and Intellectual Property.

Applicants must possess a J.D. degree and have a commitment to or demonstrated record of scholarly distinction, exemplary teaching, and institutional or public service. Experience working with diverse student populations or first-generation law students is highly desirable.

Texas Tech University, located in Lubbock, Texas, is a state-supported National Research University with an enrollment that exceeds 40,000 students. In addition, Texas Tech University is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI).  The law school has approximately 420 students and 38 full-time faculty members.  The law school is an integral part of the University and offers 10 dual-degree programs with other Texas Tech schools and colleges.  The Lubbock metropolitan area is home to over 300,000 people, enjoys affordable housing, abundant sunshine, friendly people, and offers easy access to other parts of the country.  For more information, visit our website at

As an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, Texas Tech University is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. We actively encourage applications from all those who can contribute through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Texas Tech University. The University welcomes applications from minoritized candidates, women, protected veterans, persons with disabilities, and dual-career couples.
