Penn State Law (University Park) anticipates hiring at least two tenure-track professors to begin during the 2018-19 academic year as part of an ambitious plan to strategically grow our law school over the next five years. One of these positions will be a joint hire with the Penn State College of Medicine, and we will be looking at specialists in health law, ideally with an interdisciplinary research agenda. For the other position/s, we are looking broadly at both lateral and entry level candidates in all subject areas who will be excellent additions to our faculty. We have a particular interest in candidates whose work is interdisciplinary, especially in areas that complement Penn State University’s excellence in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields, such as energy and cyberlaw. Entry-level candidates must have a J.D. and/or Ph.D., a distinguished academic record, and the potential to create outstanding scholarship and deliver excellent teaching at a leading research university. Because the Appointments Committee will be attending the AALS Faculty Recruitment Conference, interested applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in the AALS Faculty Appointments Register. Any further inquiries should be addressed to Tiyanjana Maluwa, H.
