Position description

THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES, SCHOOL OF LAW invites applications from entry-level candidates for tenure-track faculty positions expected to begin July 1, 2023. We seek candidates across all areas of law. We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research or community service has prepared them to contribute to a campus climate that supports equality and diversity.

All candidates must hold a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree prior to date of employment. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Please apply online at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF07717. Interested applicants should submit the following documents as evidence of scholarly achievement or promise, and teaching potential: C.V. including list of references (contact information only); cover letter; statement of current research and teaching interests; a paper or manuscript which will serve as the basis of your job talk; and a statement of contributions to diversity. Letters of reference do not need to be sent at this time. Early applications are encouraged. To ensure full consideration, please submit applications by Thursday, September 1, 2022, however, applications will be accepted through Friday, January 27, 2023.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
