Hiring Announcement: Wharton
Posted by David Zaring

We're looking for someone in a business field this year; I'm happy to answer questions.  The announcement is below.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a tenure-track position (including applicants who may already have achieved tenure at a business or law school) in corporate and/or securities law for its Department of Legal Studies and Business Ethics.   At full strength, the Department’s nineteen full-time faculty teach a wide variety of business-oriented courses in law and ethics in the undergraduate, MBA, and Ph.D. programs.  Their research is regularly published in leading legal and other journals.  The Wharton School has one of the largest and best-published business school faculties in the world and enjoys a premier, long-standing reputation in the area of finance.

Applicants must, at a minimum, have a J.D. from an accredited institution (an expected completion date no later than June 30, 2014 is acceptable).   Applicants should further have a demonstrated commitment to scholarship in corporate and/or securities law or a closely related, core business law field (such as financial regulation) in the domestic or global legal environment. 

The Wharton School offers a uniquely rich scholarly environment for anyone working in the corporate and/or securities law research areas.  The School has particular strengths in its global reach and perspective, as well as an interdisciplinary approach to business issues, through its ten academic departments and over twenty research centers. 

Applicants are requested to submit electronically a letter of introduction, c.v., and one selected article or writing sample in PDF format via the following website,, by December 3, 2013.   As decisions for interviews will be made on a rolling basis, candidates are encouraged to apply early.   It is expected that the successful candidate will take up this appointment as of July 1, 2014. 

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.  The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.  Women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
