Rutgers Law School seeks candidates with a demonstrated commitment to social justice, as reflected in their scholarship and research, for tenured-faculty positions in its Newark location. Candidates should have a record of excellence in legal scholarship, teaching, and institutional service. Experience in legal practice, policy advocacy, or other forms of applied research related to social justice is also a plus. The Law School values faculty diversity and strongly encourages candidates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
This hiring initiative is funded by the Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N) Chancellor to enhance the university's strategic plan (see here) of fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and engagement across RU-N's academic departments and to promote RU-N's role as an anchor institution that leverages its scholarly expertise and civic interest to advance opportunity in and around the greater Newark metropolitan area. Thus, candidates ideally should have an interest in participating in cross-disciplinary initiatives within RU-N, in partnering with communities and organizations outside the university, and/or in advancing opportunity in and around the greater Newark metropolitan area.
