The University of California Hastings College of the Law (“UC Hastings) in San Francisco is conducting an open-rank search to hire three entry-level, lateral tenure-track, or lateral tenured faculty members to begin the 2022-2023 academic year, i.e., July 1, 2022. We seek innovative and productive scholars and devoted teachers who will be role models for our students. We are particularly interested in candidates who will contribute to our vibrant and diverse community of iinterdisciplinary scholars, regardless of subject-matter focus.

Though our search is broad and is not limited by research or teaching focus, we have a particular interest in hiring a scholar focused on health law, including health care reform and health equity, because we are expanding our programming and course offerings relating to the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science, and Health Policy and our highly ranked health law program.

Applicants should have a serious interest in UC Hastings and living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Candidates should send a cv, statement of research and teaching interests, and representative publications in .pdf format to Professor Zach Price, Appointments Committee Chair (appointments2021@uchastings.edu), with the subject heading “Faculty Position.” All candidates must hold a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree prior to start date. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. We will conduct initial screening interviews (involving presentation of a scholarly work) for select candidates via Zoom and/or on-campus, with a second round of interviews and paper discussion for leading candidates on campus. We will begin considering applications as early as June 7, 2021, on a rolling basis.

UC Hastings Law was founded in 1878 as the original law department of the University of California. We are building a vibrant and interactive academic village in the heart of San Francisco and implementing an ambitious strategic plan. Our signature programs include the Center for Business Law, Center for Litigation and Courts, the Institute for Criminal Justice, the East Asian Legal Studies Program, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, the Indigenous Law Center, Center for Innovation, LexLab (legal technology), the Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution, the Center on Tax Law, the UCSF/UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science & Health Policy, the Center for Racial and Economic Justice, and the Center for Worklife Law. We welcome colleagues who would contribute to existing programs, as well as colleagues who would bring energy and creativity to building new centers of excellence.
