Health law positions at Georgia State

Georgia State is looking for a couple of good public-health law profs:

Georgia State University’s College of Law seeks highly qualified applicants for three or more full-time faculty positions beginning with the 2007-2008 academic year.

Areas of special interest include criminal law and procedure, and it is anticipated that a successful candidate would be hired at the rank of assistant or associate professor. Two faculty positions are in areas related to public health law, and it is anticipated that one of these positions would be at the assistant or associate professor rank, and the other would preferably be at the full professor rank. For all positions, rank is commensurate with experience. Applicants should have an excellent academic background, strong experience in the focus area applied for, and a proven record of (or demonstrated potential for) successful teaching, scholarship, and service.

The ideal candidates for the two positions in public health law will have strong interdisciplinary research and teaching interests and be able to collaborate actively with the Center for Law, Health & Society at the College of Law and with the Institute of Public Health in the College of Health and Human Sciences at Georgia State University in the Partnership for Urban Health Research (see

Part of a comprehensive research university, the College of Law is a dynamic urban-centered law school located in the heart of Atlanta with approximately 650 full- and part-time law students.

Georgia State University, a unit of the University System of Georgia, is an equal opportunity educational institution and an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
