Position description

 

The University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, invites applications from entry-level and lateral candidates for a full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty position. We welcome applications from scholars writing in Native American and Indigenous Law, including but not limited to Federal Indian Law, as part of a campus-wide cluster hire in Native American and Indigenous Studies.

 

UC Berkeley has dedicated new faculty positions to establish the university as an international center of excellence in Native American and Indigenous Studies. Building on very substantial existing campus assets--including an undergraduate major in Native American Studies, a robust doctoral program in Ethnic Studies, and strengths in Native American languages and literature, Indigenous archeology and cultural anthropology--the goal is to make UC Berkeley the preeminent institution of higher education in the field.

 

Berkeley Law is interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence by providing leadership in teaching, research and service toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.

 

Candidates will be evaluated for appointments in both the Law School and the Department of Ethnic Studies, which houses the Native American Studies (NAS) program.

 

The departments are committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.
