The American University Washington College of Law invites applications
for the position of Associate Director of our expanding Health Law
Program, beginning in Fall 2011.  The Associate Director will work
closely with the Faculty Director of the Health Law Program and the
Faculty Director of the Law and Government Program to provide leadership
and daily operational responsibility for health law programming at
American University.  Responsibilities will include developing and
executing health law and policy research projects, conferences and
events.  The Associate Director will also further develop the summer
Health Law and Policy Institute, the LL.M. concentration in Health Law
and Policy, and a student health law organization and publication.  In
executing these functions, the Associate Director will be engaged in
significant research, writing, grant-seeking and fundraising as well as
coordination of collaborations with internal and external partners.
Although the position is primarily administrative, the Associate
Director will teach intensive academic courses in the summer Health Law
and Policy Institute.  Depending on the candidate, an adjunct faculty
appointment may also be available for teaching up to one full-semester
course per academic year.

Successful candidates will have a J.D. or degree equivalent, significant
expertise in health law, and superb research and writing skills.  The
Associate Director must work with a wide range of students, staff,
faculty, policymakers, practitioners and funders on cross-cutting and
interdisciplinary projects.  S/he must be highly motivated and
organized, have strong interpersonal skills, and be able to function
effectively with minimal supervision while working on multiple projects
