NYU Seeks to Hire Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law

NYU Tax LogoThe NYU School of Law Graduate Tax Program is seeking applicants for its Acting Assistant Professor of Tax Law Program for the 2015-16 academic year, commencing August 1, 2015.

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.

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. To be considered for the Tax AAP program, please submit the following items electronically to Professor Joshua Blank, chairman of the Acting Assistant Professors of Tax Law Committee.

  • cover e-mail explaining your interest in the Tax AAP Program;
  • curriculum vitae; and
  • copies of your law school transcripts (J.D. and, if applicable, LL.M.)

Applications for the 2015-16 academic year will be reviewed on a rolling basis starting on November 15, 2014.
