The Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, invites applications for two probationary tenure-track, tenure-track or tenured appointments at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, to commence July 1, 2022 in the areas of Torts; Business Law (broadly defined, but applicants should have an interest in teaching fundamental corporate and commercial law courses); Law and Technology (with complementary interests in intellectual property, cybersecurity, data protection, and related ethical and regulatory issues).

We are especially interested in applications from scholars who have research and teaching interests in more than one of these areas and whose work would otherwise advance the Law School’s research and teaching priorities, including the work of our Marine and Environmental Law Institute and our Law and Technology Institute.

Dalhousie University and the Schulich School of Law are committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. We encourage applications from Indigenous persons, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of a minority sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

The deadline for applications is September 30, 2021.
