Emory University School of Law seeks applications from legal scholars of all levels of experience whose work engages issues related to artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and data science. Candidates should have exceptional records in research, teaching, and service and have attained a J.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree. Where a candidate has met the law school’s standards for scholarly and teaching excellence, interest in teaching in the 1L curriculum will be an additional positive factor.
Over the next several years, across its departments, Emory University will hire 50 to 60 faculty members with a focus on, but not limited to, four topical areas: AI and Health; AI and Social Justice/Law; AI and Business/Economics and Entrepreneurship/Law; and AI and the Humanities and Arts. Emory Law has already recruited two leading scholars working in AI-related fields. Additional information about the university’s initiative can be found here. The law school has also announced the Innovation and Legal Tech Initiative, which will explore the implications of AI, machine learning, and data science for the practice of law.
Entry-level candidates are strongly encouraged to participate in the AALS Faculty Appointments Register. Lateral candidates must complete the online application which requires creating an account, uploading a resume or CV, and providing basic demographic information. In addition, applicants should submit a cover letter, a current CV, a published or unpublished academic article, a brief research agenda, and an indication of teaching interests (if not listed on the CV) to the chair of the AI Appointments Subcommittee: Professor Matt Lawrence, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
