Does spending a year at Princeton doing research in your favorite area of legal studies (while hanging out with similar folk) sound good to you? LAPA will select up to six resident Fellows who are engaged in substantial research on topics broadly related to legal studies. The application deadline is November 4, 2013, at 5 pm. More info here.
The U.S. Supreme Court Fellowship Program is currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 term. Four fellowships are awarded each year, each in a different arm of the federal judiciary. The program is open to both junior and mid-career candidates. Academics as well as practitioners are welcome to apply. Further information is available here. Applications are due by November 15, 2013.
PURPOSE: The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy,
Biotechnology, and Bioethics is an interdisciplinary research program at
Harvard Law School dedicated to scholarly research at the intersection
of law and health policy, including issues of health
care financing and market regulation, biomedical research and
innovation, and bioethics. The Academic Fellowship is a postdoctoral
program specifically designed to identify, cultivate, and promote
promising scholars early in their careers. Fellows are selected
from among recent graduates, young academics, and mid-career
practitioners who are committed to spending two years at the Center
pursuing publishable research that is likely to make a significant
contribution to the field of health law policy, medical innovation
policy, or bioethics. Our prior fellows have found employment as law
professors at institutions such as Harvard, UC Berkeley, BU, UCLA,
Cornell, the University of Illinois, and the University of Arizona. More
information on the Center can be found at: http://www.law.harvard.edu/programs/petrie-flom/.
Stanford Law School invites applications for the 2014-2015 Fellowship Program at the Center for Law and the Biosciences. This fellowship is intended for people who want an academic or policy career working on legal and social issues arising from advances in the biosciences, with a particular emphasis on neuroscience, genetics, or stem cell research. (Six of our former fellows are now teaching at universities in the United States, Asia, and Europe.)
The Center for Law and the Biosciences Fellowship is a residential fellowship that provides an opportunity to conduct research in the dynamic environment of Stanford Law School. We prefer two-year fellowships to help the fellow complete a significant body of independent scholarship, but we are willing to consider one-year terms. We expect fellows to dedicate most of their time to pursuing their proposed research projects, while dedicating about one-sixth of their time to organizing and implementing other Center activities, including our annual conference, our monthly speaker series, our biweekly journal club, and our other activities, as well as writing for our blog. Fellows are encouraged to attend weekly faculty lunch seminars and participate in activities with the other fellows at Stanford Law School to learn more about their legal scholarship and academic life.
For the 2014-2015 fellowship, we will provide fellows with office space, a competitive stipend, and a generous benefits package. Applicants should have a JD or other doctoral level degree (MD, PhD) in a relevant area. A law degree is a significant advantage, but is not a requirement.
Applicants must apply online at Stanford Jobs (http://jobs.stanford.edu), requisition number 60600. Applicants should also submit a CV with contact information for three references, a writing sample, and a research proposal (2000 words or less) to Angela Arroyo Antia (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 1, 2013 at 5:00 PM Pacific time. We will choose fellows based on demonstrated academic merit and potential, and on the intellectual strength of their research proposals. Decisions will be made on or around December 6, 2013.
