The University of Oregon School of Law offers a two-year Master's Degree program in Conflict and Dispute Resolution. This program is uniquely situated to prepare a new generation of scholars, practitioners, and educators to rethink traditional approaches to conflict. Grounded in dispute resolution theory, the program combines broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities for individualized study and skills development. It addresses the wider scope of non-adversarial dispute resolution options and the concepts and skills needed to implement those alternatives. It equips students with the vision, determination and expertise needed to meet today's challenges with new answers and better questions.
The University of Oregon's Conflict and Dispute Resolution Master's program is seeking one full-time and one part-time instructor for its conflict in sports (Competition Not Conflict) program. There is the possibility that the FTE may increase for the part-time position in the future depending on need, funding and performance. Teaching responsibilities for the positions include both undergraduate and graduate courses. Initial contracts for non-tenure track, fixed-term, renewable appointments will be for one year, beginning September 16, 2012 and ending June 15, 2013. With successful reviews, contracts may be renewed. Reappointment decisions are based on budgetary constraints, departmental need, and quality of teaching.
The full-time appointee will supervise student projects, participate in sports conflict research, and teach 6-8 courses per year. The part-time appointee will teach 3-4 courses per year. Both positions will include some service responsibilities.
Preference will be given to candidates with practice or teaching expertise in the areas of gender and sport, ethics in sports, the philosophical foundations of conflict and sports, institutional governing structures in sports, intro to Sports Conflict, Football and Sports Conflict, Race and Culture in Sports Conflict, Soccer and Sports Conflict, Ethics in Sports, Baseball and Sports Conflict, and other subject-related courses.
Minimum qualifications include a terminal degree (Ph.D or JD) and a commitment to excellence in teaching as demonstrated by a record of successful experience teaching courses similar to the ones listed above.
Preferred qualifications include an academic background in philosophy, extensive experience with a major athletic institution of national prominence, and a recognized reputation in the field of sports and conflict. Previous university level teaching experience strongly preferred.
To ensure consideration, applicants should send a letter of introduction, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy statement, and three recommendations by May 3, 2012. The positions will remain open until filled.
