Open Tenure-Track Position

Georgia State Law seeks applicants for one open-rank tenured or tenure-track position beginning fall 2017. Having already appointed two exceptional candidates with expertise in Law and Neuroscience (“Neurolaw”) – one in psychology and one in philosophy, Georgia State seeks to appoint a third scholar with expertise in this field. To qualify for appointment in the College of Law candidates must hold the J.D. at the time of application and demonstrate a record of excellence in teaching and research. The successful applicant will play a key role in building the university’s Neuroethics/Neurolaw Program, and so a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration with other relevant departments is critical. Applicants should send a letter of interest, including research statement and a CV with a list of references, directly to the chair of the search committee, William A. Edmundson, Regents’s Professor of Law and Philosophy, at wedmundson@gsu.edu. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

Georgia State, a research university of the University System of Georgia, is committed to serving a diverse student body, and is an AA/EEO Employer. Qualified women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The college seeks diversity. Offer of employment will be conditional on background check.
