On the Job! Law Dean at Indiana-Bloomington

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

Here at my home institution, the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University Bloomington, we are actively looking for a new dean our former Dean, Lauren Robel, having become the university's Provost and Executive Vice President.
As a member of the Search Committee, I write to encourage interested IntLawGrrls readers to apply.
Here's a few snippets from the job notice:
'The Maurer School of Law was founded in 1842, and is one of the oldest law schools in the country. Today, it is among the top ten public law schools in the nation. The Maurer School of Law has approximately 650 JD students and 100 international students, more than 10,000 alumni, 55 full-time faculty members, six robust research centers, numerous clinical and externship opportunities, and partnerships with top-ranked schools on the Bloomington campus and around the world. The school prepares its students to become ethical lawyers and leaders, and has an engaged and supportive alumni base throughout the world.
'The Maurer School of Law is committed to increasing the knowledge and understanding of the law through the scholarship of the faculty, public service, and teaching that provide a transformative educational experience for students so that they will become accomplished lawyers and leaders. Its faculty members are engaged and influential scholars whose work influences debate in the academy, the profession, and the wider world.
'A hallmark of the Maurer School of Law is its longstanding leadership in collaborative and interdisciplinary research and teaching. Its position on the campus of a premier research institution affords excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary work, and the Law School has
joint-degree programs with top-ranked schools such as the Kelley School of Business and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and several of the campus’s area studies centers.'
