Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Emory Law seeks to fill four faculty positions to begin in the 2022-23 academic year.  Entry-level candidates are strongly encouraged to participate in the AALS Faculty Appointments Register. Lateral candidates should complete the online application which requires creating an account, uploading a resume or CV, and providing basic personal information. In addition, applicants should submit a cover letter, a current CV, a published or unpublished academic article, a brief research agenda, and an indication of teaching interests (if not listed on the CV) to the chair of the Faculty Appointments Committee: Fred Smith, at law.faculty.appointments@emory.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. The positions are as follows: 

Assistant or Associate Professor- Criminal Law 

The Emory University School of Law invites applications from entry-level or lateral candidates. The position is open to entry-level and lateral candidates for appointment at the rank of assistant professor (tenure track) or associate professor (tenure track). Candidates should be either new to law teaching or junior lateral candidates with no more than four years in a tenure-track position. The successful candidate should have a demonstrated record of exceptional scholarship and teaching in the area of criminal law along with an evident commitment to institutional service. This position requires the applicant to have obtained a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree.  

Assistant or Associate Professor- Environmental Law 

Emory University School of Law seeks to fill a tenure-track position in environmental law. The position is open to entry-level and lateral candidates for appointment at the rank of assistant professor (tenure track) or associate professor (tenure track). Candidates should be either new to law teaching or junior lateral candidates with no more than four years in a tenure-track position. Candidates must have a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree, and a distinguished academic record. Candidates should have a strong track record and/or show outstanding promise in research in environmental law (including, for example, land use, environmental justice, climate change, and natural resources) and the ability to teach the basic environmental law course and allied courses, especially property.    

Assistant or Associate Professor- Tax Law 

Emory University School of Law seeks to fill a position in tax law. The position is open to entry-level and lateral candidates for appointment at the rank of assistant professor (tenure track), associate professor (tenure track), or associate professor (with tenure). Candidates must have a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree, and a distinguished academic record. Candidates should have a strong track record and/or show outstanding promise in research in tax law or related fields, and the ability to teach one or more tax courses.  

Sam Nunn Chair of Professionalism and Ethics 

Emory University School of Law seeks applications from distinguished scholars for the Sam Nunn Chair in Ethics and Professionalism. Candidates should have exceptional records in research, teaching, and service and have attained a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree. Candidates should also currently hold a tenured academic appointment.     

The subject-matter focus of the Sam Nunn Chair is intentionally broad. Under the terms of the endowment supporting the position, the Chair will have the support of the law school in hosting a conference on issues related to ethics and professionalism approximately every four years. Candidates for the position, however, need not focus centrally on these themes in their work.    

The Chair may be of particular interest to scholars whose research examines ethics, professionalism, complex litigation, judging, dispute resolution, representation of corporate entities, implications of AI and big data for the profession and legal practice, and other related areas. Nevertheless, distinguished scholars with an interest in ethics and professionalism are encouraged to apply, regardless of their area of specialization.  Previous chairholders include scholars in the fields of products liability, feminist theory, law and religion, family law, and federal housing policy.
