I was asked to post information about a new academic job opening at Pace Law School. This isn’t something that we’ve done before on this blog, although we did give a list of schools with openings earlier in the academic year. But providing this information seems like a useful service to our readers and to the law school community. If this sets a precedent and we get too many requests to accommodate easily, we’ll set up a separate page for job postings. Here’s the announcement:
Pace University School of Law is seeking to fill one position, titled, Assistant Dean of Environmental Programs and Professor of Law for Designated Project or Service (Assistant Dean) for its nationally ranked Center for Environmental Legal Studies (CELS). This non-tenure track position offers the opportunity to direct one of the nation’s top Environmental Law Programs. The Assistant Dean reports to the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, and will be responsible for the overall management and administration of the Center.
Working in conjunction with the environmental faculty, the Assistant Dean helps establish the overall direction for the Environmental Law Program and is responsible for developing new programs and projects and managing and coordinating the day-to-day undertakings of the Center. Those responsibilities include organizing lectures, colloquia and our National Environmental Moot Court Competition, as well as coordinating programs with the Environmental Litigation Clinic, Pace Land Use Law Center, Pace Center for Climate and Energy Law, Brazil-American Institute for Law and Environment (BAILE), and Pace’s Public Interest Law Center. The Assistant Dean also teaches in the program.
The ideal candidate enjoys creating and maintaining partnerships and relationships with other law schools and educational institutions, bar and professional associations, governmental agencies, civic and community associations and the private sector. We seek candidates with excellent administrative and management skills, in-depth knowledge of environmental law and the environmental legal community, and familiarity with academic institutions. All applicants should have a J.D. degree. Extensive legal and/or teaching experience in the area is a strong plus.
Pace is committed to achieving equal opportunity in all aspects of University life. Applications are encouraged from people of color, gays and transgendered individuals, individuals who are differently-abled, veterans of the armed forces or national service, and anyone whose background and experience will contribute to the diversity of our school.
Salaries and benefits, including domestic partner benefits, are commensurate with experience and performance.
