NYU Seeks to Hire Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law for 2012-13

NYU Logo 2The NYU School of Law Graduate Tax Program is seeking applicants for its Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law Program for the 2012-13 academic year, commencing August 1, 2012:

For over fifty years,the NYU Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law (“Tax AAP”) program has launched the careers of dozens of tax academics. ... Tax AAPs show promise as legal scholars and have a strong interest in teaching. They serve on a full-time, non-tenure track basis at the Law School for two academic years. At the start of their second year, Tax AAPs are expected to seek a tenure-track position on the law school academic job market.

While in residence at the Law School, Tax AAPs devote a substantial amount of time to their scholarship and begin to develop their research agendas. Tax AAPs teach one or two courses in the Graduate Tax Program each semester. Each Tax AAP also either serves an Assistant Editor of the Tax Law Review, the nation’s top tax policy journal, or works with the International Tax Program, the leading graduate tax program for non-U.S. lawyers.

See lists of current Tax AAPs and former Tax AAPs (1960-2011).

A J.D. degree, a strong record of academic achievement, and an interest in an academic career are required. Tax AAPs will be selected based on their potential scholarly and teaching abilities. To be considered for the Tax AAP program for the 2012-13 academic year, please submit the following items electronically to Professor Deborah Schenk, chairman of the Acting Assistant Professors of Tax Law Committee: (1) cover e-mail explaining interest in the Tax AAP Program; (2) curriculum vitae; and (3) copies of law school transcripts (J.D. and, if applicable, LL.M.).

Applications for the 2012-13 academic year will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting November 1, 2011.

One interesting observation about NYU. I know it is the best tax program because US News says it is the best and who can doubt a newspaper or magazine. However, all or almost all the professors are from the northeast-none from the south. This dynamic also exist at U.Cal Berkley shutting out 114 million americans from the south. It is the "policy of exclusion" of certain schools not to allow the voice of other schools of thought which creates a unified voice of boredom.
