Penn State Law in University Park is conducting several searches for tenured or tenure-track faculty in the 2019-20 academic year. This is part of a multi-year strategic hiring plan, and we will consider both entry level and lateral candidates. Lateral candidates may be at the assistant, associate, or full professor levels. One of our searches will consider candidates in all subject areas, but we have a particular interest in those with research or teaching interests in criminal procedure and business law (including both domestic and international business). In addition, Penn State Law will be making two interdisciplinary hires. The first is a joint hire with the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment for a position in energy and/or environmental law. The second is a joint hire with Penn State’s Institute for CyberScience, College of Engineering, and School of International Affairs on law and big data. For this position, we will consider scholars, interested in any area of the law, who incorporate big data into their research. Candidates must have a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree, a distinguished academic record, and demonstrated potential to produce outstanding scholarship. Penn State Law will be attending the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) faculty recruitment conference, and entry level candidates are strongly encouraged to participate in the AALS Faculty Appointments Register. Lateral candidates should upload a current CV, four letters of reference, teaching evaluations, and a draft work-in-progress. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until suitable candidates are found. Consider working for The Pennsylvania State University. Located in Centre County, Pennsylvania, employment at Penn State offers an incredible opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the central Pennsylvania outdoors combined with all of the culture, sports, and entertainment a large University community can bring.
