Stanford Law School and the Stanford Constitutional Law Center are pleased to announce the creation of an Academic Fellowship program for future scholars. Fellows must be committed to producing publishable research in constitutional law. It is expected that they will enter the job market for law teaching positions during the second year of the fellowship.

Expectations and Compensation
The Academic Fellowship is a residential, full-time, two-year position (from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2014). Fellows are required to devote their attention to research and writing, and to contribute to the intellectual life of the law school. There are no teaching requirements, though in appropriate cases voluntary teaching opportunities may be available. Fellows are expected to attend events sponsored by the Center, and to help plan and execute a small number of events related to their field of expertise. They are also expected to engage with students, by mentoring Student Fellows and making themselves available to talk with other interested students at the Law School.

The Center provides each fellow with office space (though not necessarily a private office), a research and academic travel budget, a moving allowance, and a stipend of $60,000 plus benefits. Fellows will have access to the Stanford Libraries and the other resources of Stanford University.

Eligibility and the Application Process
Applicants will be evaluated based on their record of academic and scholarly achievement and, especially, the quality and probable significance to constitutional law of their research agendas. Ideally, an applicant’s education would include a J.D. But consideration will also be given to applicants who do not have a J.D. but have a Ph.D. in a field such as history or political theory and whose work is related to constitutional law.

Disclaimer: Every effort has been made to ensure the above information is current and correct. However, applicants should contact the appropriate administering body before making an application, as details do change frequently.
