Duquesne University School of Law invites applications for an entry-level, tenure-track, faculty position for the 2017-2018 academic year. We anticipate making an appointment that focuses on teaching and scholarship in the areas of Torts and Health Care Law with other aspects of the teaching and scholarly package subject to negotiation.

Duquesne Law School looks first to the Faculty Recruitment Conference sponsored by the AALS when making entry-level faculty appointments. All qualified candidates attending the 2016 Conference will be considered by the Faculty Recruiting Committee; however, candidates may indicate interest in the position by submitting their FAR and other documents through Interfolio. We especially encourage applications from racial minorities, women, and others who would enrich the diversity of our academic community.

Motivated by its Catholic and Spiritan identity, Duquesne values equality of opportunity both as an educational institution and as an employer. Founded in 1878 by its sponsoring religious community, the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne University is Catholic in mission and ecumenical in spirit. Its Mission Statement commits the University to "serving God by serving students." Applicants for this position should describe how they might support and contribute to this mission.

Applicants should have superior academic credentials, previous teaching experience, and a record, or the promise, of excellence in teaching and legal scholarship. Prior teaching and scholarship in the area for which the appointment is sought is preferred, and experience teaching hybrid courses (flipped classrooms, etc.) is advantageous. Entry-level applicants may demonstrate scholarly promise by publications in scholarly journals or by scholarly works in progress.

Duquesne University is committed to attracting, retaining and developing a diverse faculty that reflects contemporary society, serves our academic mission and enriches our campus community. As a charter member of the Ohio, Western PA and West Virginia Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC), we encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups and support dual-career couples.
