This non-tenure-track Academic General Faculty position will have a fixed-term appointment of two years. The position offers compensation of $70,000 plus benefits.
The Race, Place, and Equity Fellow will conduct research and refine their scholarly portfolio with the goal of obtaining a tenure-line faculty position at a law school. Working under the direction of and closely with Professor Kim Forde-Mazrui, the Fellow will be expected to produce scholarship related to law, race, justice, and equity in the United States, which, among other things, could include topics related to indigenous people. The Fellow will be mentored by Law School faculty, be able to attend and participate in faculty workshops, and be expected to teach one or more courses. The Fellow will join a University-wide cohort of Race, Place and Equity Fellows funded by a Race, Place and Equity grant from the Mellon Foundation and UVA matching funds, for additional interdisciplinary interactions, career development programs, and professional growth opportunities.
Distinguished academic and professional background and superior scholarly promise is expected. The successful candidate will have a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school or foreign equivalent. Candidates with a J.D. who also have or are pursuing a Ph.D. are welcome to apply. Successful candidates will bring a humanities-based approach to scholarship at the intersection of law, race, justice, and equity.
