The University of Virginia School of Law is seeking candidates for a small number of limited-term, non-tenure-track Research Assistant Professor faculty positions beginning in August 2023. These new faculty members will join a vibrant scholarly community in the School of Law, which takes pride in its collegial and supportive environment.
These positions are designed to provide candidates with time to work on their scholarship in anticipation of entering the law school teaching market.
J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school or foreign equivalent degree strongly preferred. In exceptional cases, a terminal degree in the applicant’s field (e.g., a Ph.D.) will be considered. Distinguished academic and professional background and superior scholarly promise expected.
Please submit a cover letter, your C.V., and contact information for three references (name, email address, telephone number, and address). Note: the form will ask for one contact reference - please list all three references on one form.
Questions regarding this position should be directed to Professor Joshua Fischman, at email@example.com. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to Marcus Rozier, Academic Recruiter, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University will perform background checks on all new hires prior to employment.
The School of Law is located in Charlottesville, VA, a college town setting with natural beauty and significant historical relevance in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Charlottesville is a wonderful place to live with an extraordinary quality of life, often ranked among the best places to live in the United States.
