Georgia State University College of Law is seeking highly qualified applicants for five tenure-track faculty positions, to start in the 2011-2012 academic year, in the following three subject matter areas:
Intellectual Property: We seek candidates who specialize in intellectual property law with a research focus on biotechnology, the life and health sciences, and entrepreneurship.
Health Regulation: We seek candidates who specialize in health law with a research focus on health business regulation law, corporate law and compliance, and ethics of health care businesses and organizations.
Health Equity: We seek candidates with backgrounds in legal disciplines consistent with a research focus on health equity and legal remedies to rectify systemic health disparities.
These three positions are part of a University faculty hiring initiative, called the Second Century Initiative (2CI), to build scholarly research around interdisciplinary research themes.
Candidates for these positions should have strong interdisciplinary research interests that will enable their engagement with the Center for Law, Health & Society and other University units.
Applicants should have a Juris Doctor degree, excellent academic background, and a proven record of (or demonstrated potential for) outstanding scholarship, teaching, and professional engagement. All positions are tenure track, and they are at the assistant or associate professor level commensurate with experience. Applications must be submitted online. Review of applications for these positions will begin in August 2010 and continue until the positions are filled; however, applicants are strongly encouraged to apply before October 1, 2010.
