Wayne State University Law School is seeking to fill up to three tenure-track or tenured faculty positions. We encourage applications from candidates who will enhance the diversity of our faculty and whose scholarship engages with questions of social justice.
Although we welcome applications from candidates in all fields, we have particular interest in the following areas: (i) race and the law and/or critical race theory, (ii) tax or a combination of tax and business, and (iii) criminal law and criminal procedure.
One of the three positions we seek to fill is the Coleman A. Young Foundation Endowed Chair of Urban Affairs. This Chair will be held jointly in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Law School. The position provides a unique opportunity to promote high-impact activities and research on matters central to modern urban affairs. The holder of the chair will occupy a highly visible and influential position in the university, the metropolitan Detroit area and the broader community by playing a leadership role on issues of urban affairs in academia. The minimum qualifications for the Young Chair are: (a) an earned doctorate and/or a JD; (b) a substantial record of published work based either on research or reflections on practice; or (c) career experience in related government or foundation management, urban policy, health policy, social justice policy, or a related field; and (d) a record of direct involvement in public service achievement.
Wayne Law warmly welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, and others who will contribute to the diversity of the faculty.
Candidates should send a cover letter, CV, and any other relevant materials to Professor Gregory Fox, Faculty Appointments Committee Chair, at email@example.com.
