Job Summary

Harvard Law School's Faculty Support Services Department (FSS) is dedicated to providing approximately 200 faculty members and instructors with the high-quality assistance they need in order to successfully teach, conduct research, and advance scholarship. While each assistant works directly with members of the faculty-often acting as a liaison between students, other instructors, and various Law School and University administrative departments-our department comprises a collaborative and supportive team of assistants who are committed to collecting and sharing the most effective methods of administrative support.

Faculty Support Services seeks an Executive Assistant who is able to fulfill this dual role as an independent problem-solver and enthusiastic team member. The EA will provide high-level support to two faculty members.
