The Faculty of Law invites applications for a tenure-track appointment, anticipated to be at the Assistant Professor level, with a start date of July 1, 2018 or such other date as may be negotiated with the successful candidate. The position is subject to budgetary approvals. We welcome applications from outstanding scholars of diverse perspectives and are particularly interested in Indigenous scholars.
Candidates will be willing to take on leadership of the Faculty’s program of legal writing and research, particularly in the first-year program. The successful candidate will have additional teaching responsibilities relating to legal writing and other areas of interest, and may have responsibilities relating to the Faculty’s competitive mooting program.
Candidates will have a strong academic record and will have, or be completing, a graduate degree in law or another relevant discipline. They will also have a record of, or potential for, excellence in teaching and research. Experience in a variety of law practice settings would be an asset.
Founded in 1892, UNB Law is a collegial community with a deep commitment to its 270 students. Faculty members contribute to, and are committed to, sustaining our core curriculum, which includes compulsory courses in all three years. Our offices, teaching facilities, and the Gérard V. La Forest Law Library are located together in an attractive setting on UNB’s Fredericton campus, above the Saint John/St. Jean (Wolastoq) River, in the capital city of New Brunswick. Faculty and students support a variety of causes and events that enhance the civic life of the school and community. We are home to the student-produced annual, UNB Law Journal/Revue de droit de l’U N-B, and we offer many opportunities for collaboration both inside and outside the University.
Review of applications is expected to begin on May 15, 2018 and continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a curriculum vitae, transcripts of university study, a brief statement of research and teaching interests, and the names, postal and email addresses, and telephone numbers of three referees to:
