Bentley University (Waltham, MA) is seeking to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Law in its Law, Tax & Financial Planning Department:
The Law Taxation and Financial Planning Department at Bentley University, located in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, is seeking a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Law to start in July 2017. With a strong faculty of teacher-scholars, Bentley strives to lead higher education in the integration of global business with the arts and sciences, information technology, and corporate ethics and social responsibility. Providing an intellectually stimulating academic community for both faculty and students, Bentley supports its faculty as they pursue high quality and impactful cutting-edge research and bring their expertise and real world experiences into the classroom. We seek individuals who represent different backgrounds, interests and talents and who share a commitment to the fusion of business and arts & sciences education, information technology, and business ethics.
At Bentley, approximately 4,000 undergraduate and 1,300 graduate students interested in business professions study in a wide range of AACSB accredited undergraduate and graduate business programs. Bentley University is also one of only a few US business schools and approximately 130 business schools worldwide to earn European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation. See the university website (www.bentley.edu ) for information about the school, its faculty, its students, and its programs.
The chosen candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate law courses with a business focus. The chosen candidate may also be called upon to teach graduate taxation courses. The standard teaching load for the tenure-track years is 2-2 (two courses per semester). The chosen candidate will be expected to publish high quality and impactful scholarship in respected academic and/or practitioner journals. Assistant Professors at Bentley University are expected to focus primarily on teaching and scholarship during their tenure-track years but are also expected, to a limited degree, to engage in service to the University as requested by the Department Chair from time to time.
