Missouri is Hiring Entry-Level or Lateral Faculty

From my colleague, Ilhyung Lee, Director of Missouri’s Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution:

The University of Missouri School of Law invites applications for one full-time tenure-track or tenured position.  Senior lateral candidates should have a national reputation for distinguished scholarship and a record of excellence in teaching.  Entry-level and junior lateral candidates should have a strong commitment to scholarship, teaching, and public service; a strong academic record; and either legal practice experience or advanced academic training.  A J.D. or Ph.D. in a related field is required.  The search committee will welcome applications of scholars in any field of law.  We are particularly interested in scholars with expertise in the broad field of Dispute Resolution (including trial or appellate advocacy, pretrial practice, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or other forms of dispute resolution), Criminal Law, and Family Law.

The University of Missouri-Columbia is the flagship campus of the University of Missouri system and is one of only 33 public universities in the country belonging to the Association of American Universities, a group of elite research universities.  As both a research and land grant university, we have extraordinary opportunities for interdisciplinary interaction.  In addition, Columbia is a wonderful college town halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City that is regularly ranked as one of the most livable cities in the country.

Application Procedure:  Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply, please use this website to submit a cover letter and resume.  (You might try this link, which should save some clicks.)  If you have questions, email Associate Dean Paul Litton or call him at 573-882-6488.
