Currently recruiting: academic positions, tenure-track and tenured

McGill University’s Faculty of Law invites applications from candidates with a strong commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching and research, and who will make a creative contribution to the governance of the Faculty and the University. Pending budgetary approval, the Faculty of Law anticipates two openings with a starting date of 1 August 2015. Applications for entry-level or lateral appointments will be considered; the Faculty also has a number of vacant Chairs for which senior scholars may be eligible.

Les programmes de recherche, initiatives pédagogiques, et priorités académiques de la Faculté traduisent tous un engagement face aux traditions juridiques, au droit comparé, et à l'internationalisation du droit. La Faculté de droit a, à cet égard, identifié quatre domaines prioritaires : la formation juridique transsystémique; le commerce, la mobilité, et l'entreprise; les politiques gouvernementales et les ressources privées; et les droits fondamentaux et le pluralisme juridique. Les membres de la Faculté enseignent et poursuivent leur recherche dans plusieurs domaines, selon des perspectives théoriques, critiques et méthodologiques diverses.

For this recruitment cycle, the committee welcomes applications from candidates with research and teaching interests in any of the four areas of academic priority previously mentioned. Senior scholars of public and constitutional law may indicate their interest in being considered for an appointment to the F.R. Scott Chair in Constitutional and Public Law.

For all teaching and research fields, the committee invites applications from candidates with diverse and intersecting identities whose critical perspectives are grounded in experience and scholarship.

Applicants should have a graduate degree in law; preference will be given to candidates who have or are completing a doctoral degree. In addition, the bilingual environment of the Faculty of Law at McGill requires that successful candidates be able to evaluate written and oral work presented in both English and French.

Le programme de premier cycle de la Faculté se conçoit comme une référence internationale en matière de formation juridique et mène à l'obtention des diplômes de baccalauréat en droit civil (B.C.L.) et de baccalauréat en droit (LL.B.). Les principaux cours du programme sont enseignés de manière transsystémique, c'est-à-dire au-delà de frontières formées par des traditions et systèmes juridiques, entre autre le droit civil et la common law. Les études supérieures comprennent un programme de maîtrise (LL.M.), avec ou sans mémoire, et un programme de doctorat axé sur la recherche (D.C.L.).

L'activité de recherche à la Faculté met l'accent sur la collégialité. Nous cherchons à promouvoir le perfectionnement intellectuel et professionnel permanent de tous les professeurs. Cet effort est alimenté par le dynamisme d'une panoplie d'instituts et centres de recherche affiliés, dont la vocation est souvent transdisciplinaire.

Applications consist of: a cover letter that includes a teaching and research statement, a curriculum vitae, law transcripts, up to three samples of published research and the names and email addresses of three referees. Applications are now being accepted for this competition and must be submitted no later than January 15, 2015.  Applications should be addressed to Professor Geneviève Saumier, Chair, Staff Appointments Committee, Faculty of Law, McGill University.  Applications should be sent by electronic mail to staffappointments [dot] law [at] mcgill [dot] ca.

L’Université McGill souscrit à la diversité et à l'équité en matière d'emploi. Elle accueille favorablement les demandes d'emploi des peuples autochtones, des minorités ethniques, des femmes, des personnes handicapées, des personnes de toutes orientations et identités sexuelles, des minorités visibles, et d'autres personnes qui pourraient contribuer à une plus grande diversité. On encourage tous les candidats qualifiés à postuler; la priorité sera toutefois accordée aux Canadiens ainsi qu'aux résidents permanents.
