Villanova seeks to hire two VAPs for the 2012-13 academic year:
Villanova University School of Law, a Catholic and Augustinian institution, invites applications for its Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) Program. Visiting Assistant Professors will be hired for a one-year term, beginning in the summer of 2012. The Law School anticipates hiring two VAPs for the 2012-2013 academic year.
At Villanova, VAPs will have the opportunity to participate fully in the intellectual life of the Law School, including faculty workshops and symposia, and will be offered mentoring and other institutional support to develop their scholarship and teaching skills. Each VAP will teach one class each semester. Course assignments will be made by the administration based upon academic needs and the individual VAP’s research and teaching interests. The salary and benefits will be nationally competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, brief description of the applicant’s scholarly agenda, list of classes that the applicant is willing to teach, and list of references. Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2012, or until the positions are filled. Applications should be submitted via e-mail to the Chair of the Faculty Appointments Committee, Professor Jennifer O’Hare,
