coolest thing ever

UT Austin has just announced the Emerging Scholars Program, which sounds like the plummest opportunity a wanna-be legal scholar could hope for: $30K a semester to teach one course while working otherwise on "personaly scholarly projects." Three or four semesters of this, and then you go into the academic job market.

In other words, please come to UT Austin and teach a course a semester. When you're not in class, we'll pay you to work on whatever you're working on right now, so you can get it published and then get a job, probably somewhere else.

Wow. I wonder how hard it would be to come back to Austin after three years away at law school? I wonder if the husband would be willing to do that?
