The Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto invites applications from outstanding scholars for a full-time tenure stream position in International Law. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024, or shortly thereafter.

The successful candidate’s field of study should complement the research and teaching specialties of the Faculty of Law. We seek candidates in all areas of International Law. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in public international law, including general international law. Expertise in private international law is considered an asset. We encourage diverse and interdisciplinary approaches to law.

Candidates must hold a J.D. or equivalent degree. Applicants with a doctoral degree are preferred. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in research and teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue innovative and independent research at the highest international level and to establish an outstanding, competitive, and externally funded research program.

Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence, which can be demonstrated by a record of publications in top-ranked and field relevant journals or forthcoming publications meeting high international standards, significant work in progress, the submitted research statement, presentations at conferences, academic awards and accolades, and strong endorsements from referees of high standing.

Evidence of excellence in teaching may be demonstrated by a record of strong teaching, teaching accomplishments, and the teaching dossier, including a teaching statement, sample course materials, and teaching evaluations, or other evidence of superior performance in teaching-related activities submitted as part of the application, as well as strong endorsements by referees. Other teaching-related activities can include performance as a teaching assistant or course instructor, experience leading successful workshops or seminars, student mentorship, or excellent conference presentations or posters. For those candidates invited for a campus visit, a presentation will be required to demonstrate excellence in teaching.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The University of Toronto is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to research and teaching. The Faculty of Law offers opportunities for collaborative and interdisciplinary research and teaching, and the excitement of working with a diverse student population. The Faculty actively encourages innovative scholarship.
