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.

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.

Master’s degree or a doctorate (completed or in progress).
The deadline for applications is September 30, 2021.
