The NYU tax faculty mentors the Tax AAPs, evaluating and assisting in their teaching and providing feedback on their scholarly work. In addition, the faculty provides substantial support in preparing the Tax AAPs for entering the law school academic job market. Tax AAPs are also encouraged to attend faculty workshops and conferences, especially the Tax Policy Colloquium, which meets weekly in the spring semester.

Compensation and Benefits
Tax AAPs receive an annual salary (currently in the low $60,000 range) and benefits, including health insurance. Tax AAPs may also apply for subsidized faculty housing. Each Tax AAP is provided with a regular faculty office, administrative support and a research budget.

How to Apply
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.

The Declining Market for Tax Profs

Tax Prof Sarah Lawsky (UC-Irvine) slices and dices the data on law school hiring of entry level faculty.  Interestingly, only three of the 117 entry level tax hires are Tax Profs -- all from NYU.  As Sarah admits, her data are incomplete as they are limited to self-reported hires.  I listed a fourth entry level tax hire in my post on Tax Prof Moves, 2013-14.

Here are the U.S. law school data on entry level and lateral tax hires for the ten years I have been reporting on Tax Prof Moves:

Villanova Seeks to Hire Graduate Tax Program Director

The Villanova University School of Law and the Villanova School of Business seek a distinguished tax practitioner to lead its esteemed Graduate Tax Program, to begin in August 2013. The Villanova Graduate Tax Program has over 200 full and part-time students. In 2012 U.S. News ranked Villanova Law School’s tax program seventeenth in the nation and its graduate tax program ninth.

The Director of the Graduate Tax Program is responsible for leading and managing of all aspects of the Graduate Tax Program. The position’s main responsibilities include overseeing the program’s curriculum and adjunct teaching faculty; coordinating involvement of the full time faculty of both the Business and Law Schools, counseling MT and LLM students on academic and professional development issues; developing and implementing an effective marketing and outreach plan to ensure the Program maintains and potentially grows its student enrollment; managing all aspects of admissions; and cultivating relationships with alumni and tax professionals in the academy and private sector to attract qualified students and to assist our students and Career Strategy office with placement opportunities for graduates. While the Director position is a full-time administrative one, teaching could also be a component of the position.

Applicants should have an excellent academic background and significant practical experience (either in government or the private sector). The ideal candidate would be an experienced tax practitioner with excellent leadership and management skills who has some teaching experience in academia. However, academic experience is not a requirement and this position may be well-suited for an individual interested in building a second career in academia and helping develop our next generation of tax professionals. Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume to Professor Teri Ravenell, Chair of the Villanova Law School Faculty Appointments Committee.
