Professorship of Law and Medicine
Penn State Law and College of Medicine
Deadline: Open until filled.
Penn State Law (University Park) and the Penn State College of Medicine (Hershey) invite applications for the position of Professor of Law and Medicine. This faculty line is jointly funded by both units (2/3 Law; 1/3 Medicine), with a tenure home in the law school. The successful candidate will teach and conduct research in both units.
Penn State ranks among the top 20 U.S. research universities, with a large number of research institutes and centers of excellence in the biosciences (see https://www.huck.psu.edu/content/research). The law school has an ambitious plan to enhance the breadth of its faculty through a number of strategic hires in the coming years. This co-hire is part of a university-wide strategic initiative to "be a leader in promoting quality of life through comprehensive approaches to enhancing personalized and population health, achieved through a commitment to and investment in relevant research, education, clinical practice, and outreach (see http://strategicplan.psu.edu/enhancing-health/)."
We seek an established scholar with qualifications appropriate for appointment as a full professor, but will also consider a junior candidate with an unusually strong record. Applicants should have a J.D., an M.D., or a Ph.D. (or equivalent degree), superior academic credentials, and demonstrated excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
