Tenure-track appointment opportunities 

The Faculty of Law invites applications for two tenure-track appointments, anticipated to be at the Assistant Professor level, with start dates of July 1, 2018 or January 1, 2019 or such other dates as may be negotiated with the successful candidates. The positions are subject to budgetary approvals.

We welcome applications from outstanding scholars of diverse perspectives and are particularly interested in Indigenous scholars. Our current teaching priorities are in the following areas:

  • contract law
  • commercial law
  • constitutional law and administrative law
  • clinical legal education, ethics and professionalism, and civil procedure

Candidates will have a strong academic record and will have, or be completing, a graduate degree in law or a related discipline. They will also have a record of, or potential for, excellence in teaching and research.

Founded in 1892, UNB Law is a collegial community with a deep commitment to its 270 students. Faculty members contribute to and are committed to, sustaining our core curriculum, which includes compulsory courses in all three years. Our offices, teaching facilities, and the Gérard V. La Forest Law Library are located together in an attractive setting on UNB’s Fredericton campus, above the Saint John/St. Jean (Wolastoq) River, in the capital city of New Brunswick. Faculty and students support a variety of causes and events that enhance the civic life of the school and community. We are home to the student-produced annual, UNB Law Journal/Revue de droit de l’U N-B, and we offer many opportunities for collaboration both inside and outside the University.

Review of applications is expected to begin on May 15, 2018 and continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a curriculum vitae, transcripts of university study, a brief statement of research and teaching interests, and the names, postal and email addresses, and telephone numbers of three referees to:
