“Open Rank — Professor

The Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University invites
applications for a Professor in the field of Legal Studies (including
Constitutional Law, Public Law, Judicial Process, Law and Society, Comparative
Legal Studies, and related fields) to begin in Fall 2019. This search is open
with respect to rank as we seek to hire either an established scholar with an
excellent record of research or an emerging scholar with high potential.
George Mason University has a strong institutional commitment to the
achievement of excellence and diversity among its faculty and staff, and
strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich Mason’s academic and
culturally inclusive environment.

The Schar School has over 80 faculty members with backgrounds in political
science, public policy, computer science, anthropology, economics, and
engineering. The School houses three Ph.D. programs, 13 Master’s degree
programs, and two undergraduate degree programs. The School is housed on two
campuses in Fairfax and Arlington, Virginia both of which are located within
the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. It has unmatched geographical
access to federal agencies, national laboratories, and non-governmental
organizations, as well as one of the largest concentrations of high-tech firms
in the nation. The D.C. metropolitan area is also consistently rated among the
best places to live in the United States. The Schar School receives over $3
million in annual research funding, and is the beneficiary of a generous
naming gift from the philanthropist Dwight Schar. The terms of this gift are
publicly available and the Schar School is committed to scholarly
independence, integrity, and excellence. More information can be found at
