Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) in Environmental Law at Pace Law School

Pace Law School seeks applicants for a new Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) in Environmental Law. The VAP in Environmental Law will hold a one-year appointment, renewable for a second one-year term. The appointment is designed to mentor and train future environmental law professors.

The VAP will have a reduced teaching load of one course per semester, the opportunity to focus on scholarly research and writing, and the expectation that s/he will enter the law school teaching market. The VAP will receive the same office and administrative support as other faculty members, is invited to participate fully in faculty activities, and will receive a small travel and research fund. Additionally, the VAP will present a work in progress at Pace Law School’s Future Environmental Law Professors Workshop, receive feedback and mentoring from other scholars, and present a finished manuscript to the faculty at our weekly scholarly colloquium.

The salary for the VAP in Environmental Law is $55,000 per year plus benefits, including health and dental insurance. The VAP will not be eligible for a full-time tenure-track or tenured faculty appointment at Pace Law School until after six years following the completion of his/her term in residence.

Candidates will be selected based on their prior work and educational experience, and teaching and scholarly potential. Pace is committed to achieving equal opportunity in all aspects of University life.

The logo for thePace Academy for Applied Environmental StudiesThe logo for the “Food You” campaign at Pace University aimed at raising student awareness of issues related to what we eat.

From noon to 2 p.m. today (Eastern time), and archived online here thereafter, you can watch and weigh in on an open-minded discussion of the intersection of biotechnology, the environment and the dinner plate at Pace University.

The event, “Feelings, Facts, Food and GMOs – A Fresh Look,”* is part of FoodYou, a .

Today’s panel consists of Shelley Boris, a chef committed to conscientious cuisine and author of “Fresh Cooking” (disclosure: she’s a friend); Jason J. Czarnezki a professor of environmental law at Pace Law School and co-author of “Food, Agriculture and Environmental Law“; Pamela Ronald, a plant geneticist and co-author of “Tomorrow’s Table“; and Nathanael Johnson, the Grist writer whose 2013 series ”Panic-Free GMOs” provided a deep and informative dive on genetics, agriculture and risk.

I’ll be moderating.
