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.
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 2011-12 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 2011-12 academic year will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting November 1, 2010.
