Job No: 495294 Work Type: Faculty Full-time Department: Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law Location: Brookdale Center, 55 Fifth Avenue, NY, NY Categories: Education/Teaching
Position Summary: Cardozo Law School invites applications for the Harold A. Stevens Visiting Assistant Professorship, designed for a recent law graduate with an interest in legal scholarship and law teaching. The opening is for a two-year appointment expected to commence July 1, 2021. The Stevens Visiting Assistant Professorship furthers the Law School's commitment to increasing diversity in law teaching. We actively encourage applications from candidates of color, candidates with disabilities, LGBTQIA candidates, and members of other groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in the legal academy. We are particularly interested in those who have demonstrated interest in antiracist teaching strategies.
Stevens VAPs earn a $90,000 annual salary, and are provided an office, administrative support, a budget for conferences and research expenses, and health and dental benefits.
The professorship honors Harold A. Stevens (1907-1990), a distinguished New York jurist, the first African American to sit on the New York Court of Appeals, and the first African American since Reconstruction to serve on any state court of last resort.
Position Responsibilities: Holders of the Stevens VAP spend four semesters in residence at the law school, teaching and engaging in research and writing in preparation for entry into the market for tenure-track teaching positions. VAPs participate in faculty workshops, conferences, colloquia, and other facets of the intellectual life of the law school, and in many respects, are treated as tenure-track faculty (albeit with a reduced teaching load and no administrative/committee obligations). VAPs are given the opportunity to present works-in-progress to the faculty and more generally to receive feedback and mentoring from faculty members in preparation for the academic job market.
The position provides promising legal scholars a supportive academic environment, the opportunity to devote substantial time to research and writing, and valuable teaching experience. Cardozo VAPs have gone on to tenure-track positions at a variety of well-respected law schools across the nation, including DePaul, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, NYU, Roger Williams, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt, as well as Cardozo itself.
