On the Job! Clinical human rights prof @ Duke Law

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

From our colleague Laurence R. Helfer, Harry R. Chadwick, Sr. Professor of Law at Duke University School of Law, comes news that Duke Law welcomes applications for the position of Clinical Professor of International Human Rights Law.
The position will begin in Fall 2013. Larry writes:
'The precise contours of the position, including resources and institutional support, will be tailored to the strengths and interests of the successful applicant. In addition to a strong record of, or demonstrated potential for, clinical teaching, intellectual engagement, and leadership in the field, the ideal candidate will have experience in developing effective clinical programs or practice-oriented courses, working collaboratively with faculty members in law and related fields, and a record of practical engagement in international human rights law.
'Teaching obligations will focus on developing and supervising experiential education opportunities for Duke Law students. Courses offered may include some combination of the following—an international human rights law clinic, broadly defined; carefully structured externship courses; and a doctrinal course that could be integrated with the clinic or externship courses.'
The successful candidate would become part of an array of international law programming at Duke Law, one that includes inter alia a Center for International & Comparative Law (which Larry co-directs), a Center on Law, Ethics & National Security, and a joint J.D.-LL.M in international and comparative law.
Applicants are encouraged to submit their materials (a cover letter describing interest in the position, as well as a current CV) via e-mail to Alison Prince, ali.prince@law.duke.edu. The letter should be addressed to Professor Laurence R. Helfer, Co-Director, Center for International and Comparative Law, Duke University School of Law, Box 90360, Science Drive & Towerview Road, Durham, North Carolina 27707.
Priority will be given to applications received by October 29, 2012.
