Job Description Summary
The Office of Academic Advising and the Program for Leadership and Character at Wake Forest University seek a visionary, creative, and caring teacher-scholar to become the Postdoctoral Fellow in Leadership and Character for Pre-Law Professions. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work closely with the Associate Dean of Academic Advising in the College, the pre-law advising team, and the Program for Leadership and Character to provide an intellectual foundation for pre-law advising, mentoring, and teaching that focuses on the integration of leadership, character, and purpose into pre-professional education and vocational discernment and development.

The ideal candidate will exhibit scholarly expertise in leadership, ethics, law, and/or interdisciplinary humanities and demonstrate a commitment to personal mentoring, transformative teaching, and student development as leaders of character.
