While the ELS Blog is not a general employment information clearinghouse, we do note job postings of particular interest to ELS folks. The recent posting for an open position in US Legal History in the Jurisprudence & Social Policy Program at UC Berkeley is one such example.
"The Jurisprudence and Social Policy (JSP) Program in the School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley seeks applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in U.S. legal history. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in history or a closely related field; and must have an excellent record of historical scholarship related to law, as appropriate to career stage. Candidates with ABD status will be considered, but the successful candidate must have finished the Ph.D. within 6 months of appointment. The position is not restricted to any particular period of U.S. history, area of legal historical research or methodological approach. An ideal candidate should undertake research of interest both to the historical profession generally and to legal historians within the law school community. Given the multi-disciplinary character of the JSP Program, faculty members are expected to help support students across a range of socio-legal fields, as well as within their own area of disciplinary training. A JD is not required, though we welcome candidates who would enrich scholarship and teaching within the broadest community at Berkeley Law, including contributions to the professional J.D. program."
