From an email message that I received earlier today:
Texas Tech University School of Law seeks applications from exceptional individuals to fill two tenured or tenure-track positions for the 2013–2014 or 2014–2015 academic years.
For the first position (requisition number 88012), we are seeking a professor who, if a tenured candidate, also will serve as Director for the Law School’s Center for Water Law and Policy and George W. McCleskey Professor of Water Law (a tenure-track candidate would be able to serve as Acting Director). The Center's mission is to contribute to the understanding, development, teaching, and study of water law and policy. The Center is part of the Texas Tech University’s interdisciplinary water initiative, which involves faculty and students representing the disciplines of law, public policy, economics, agriculture, geosciences, engineering, biological sciences, and health sciences. In addition to serving as the Center’s Director, responsibilities would include teaching Water Rights and related courses.
The curricular needs for the second position (requisition number 88013) are flexible, although our greatest needs are in the areas of Texas Procedure, Professional Responsibility, skills courses, and immigration law.
Applicants for both positions must possess a J.D. degree or an advanced degree in a relevant field and have relevant experience such as teaching, legal practice, or judicial clerkship. Entry-level candidates must show scholarly promise, as evidenced by publications in scholarly journals, scholarly works in progress or a scholarly agenda. For any lateral applicant with tenure, a distinguished record of teaching and scholarship is required. Once hired, faculty members are evaluated and advancement is determined by contributions in teaching, research, and service.
