The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, a leading graduate school of international relations, seeks to fill a full-time faculty position in international economic law at the assistant professor level. The study of international economic and business relations is central to the Fletcher School’s mission, and intersects with many of the School’s other academic and disciplinary strengths.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching, research, and graduate student research supervision, and will engage in service to The Fletcher School as well as to the broader community. The Fletcher School’s faculty is multi-disciplinary, with a focus on preparing tomorrow’s leaders with a global perspective. The successful candidate should be prepared and eager to participate in this School-wide interdisciplinary dialogue. The School undertakes research and prepares master’s and doctoral students to use the latest legal, political, economic, business, and other analytical tools, to generate pragmatic policies and make decisions that will successfully shape global events. In addition to its flagship Master’s in Law & Diplomacy (MALD) and Master’s in Global Affairs (MGA), the Fletcher School also offers a Master’s in International Law (LLM), a Master’s in International Business (MIB) and a PhD.
The candidate should have excellent expertise and research capabilities in international economic and business law, particularly with respect to international trade, international investment, and international monetary matters. Teaching experience in this field is desirable, but not required. In addition, the ability to teach courses in international legal aspects of governance, sustainability and environmental justice, technology, cybersecurity, or development would be an added benefit. Relevant professional experience is desirable, whether in government, international organizations, business, non-governmental organizations, or academia. A J.D. or equivalent law degree is required.
Candidates should submit a cover letter, a research statement, and teaching statement, including concrete descriptions of plans for research as well as their particular interest in the position at The Fletcher School, a curriculum vitae, a list of at least three references, and any previous student evaluations.
