On the Job! 2 senior intlaw professorships

(On the Job! pays occasional notice to interesting intlaw job notices)

International law professors will want to take note of 2 senior-level positions for which applications are now being sought:
► The Chichele Professorship of Public International Law at the University of Oxford, Faculty of Law, in association with All Souls College at the same English university.
Established in 1859, the professorship always has been held by a man. The notice e-mailed via SSRN states:
'Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.'
The Chichele Professor "will play a major role ... in nurturing and developing the intellectual climate of legal studies, by publication and teaching, and by participation in the wider scholarly life of the subject." Duties of the position are detailed here.
Deadline for applications is April 2, 2012; details on how to apply here. The job will start as early as October 1, 2012.
Professor of Human Rights Law and Director of the Irish Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, National University of Ireland, Galway. Inaugural holder of this position, from 2000 to 2011, was our colleague William A. Schabas, who writes at his blog:
'This is a wonderful opportunity for an established scholar to lead the Irish Centre for Human Rights through its second decade. The job is full of opportunity and excitement. Please spread the word so that the best candidates apply for this great job.'
Deadline to apply for this position is April 12, 2012; details here.
