:: Jobs :: The Faculty of Law of the Instituto Tecnológico Autoònomo de México (ITAM) invites applications for two tenure track appointments, anticipated to be at the Assistant Professor level. The starting date is August 1, 2020 or such other date as is negotiated with the successful candidate.


The Faculty welcomes applications from outstanding scholars of diverse perspectives and will consider an appointment in any field of expertise, although our current teaching priorities are in the areas of: (1) Private Law (including an interest in comparative law); (2) Analytical Legal Theory-Philosophy. Applicants will have a strong academic record and will have, or will be completing, a Ph.D. in law or a related discipline. They will have a record of, or demonstrated potential for, excellence in teaching and research.


Founded in 1980, ITAM’s Faculty of Law is a collegial community with a deep commitment to its 500 students. We pride ourselves on having one of the most
prestigious law faculties in the Spanish-speaking world. All faculty members contribute to, and are committed to, sustaining the core curriculum, which includes compulsory courses in all four years, as well as a diverse research agenda.
ITAM is located in an attractive colonial setting in Mexico City. The offices of the law school look out over the valley of Mexico and the colonial neighborhood of San Angel. Faculty and students support a variety of causes and activities enhancing the civic life of the school and community, including a Center for Access to Justice, an active faculty seminar series with speakers from around the world, two law journals, and a strong clinical education offering.


Review of applications will begin in January 2020. All pre-selected candidates will receive an invitation to present a faculty seminar and job interview activities on February 5. The interview process will take place between March and April 2020. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with complete citations for publications, brief statement of research and teaching interests, and letters from three referees to:

Dean Jorge Cerdio Herrán (jcerdio@itam.mx)
Rio Hondo No. 1, Progreso-Tizapan, Ciudad de Mexico 01080, MEXICO

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. However, those able or willing to work in Spanish will be given priority.
