We are pleased to announce that the application period has opened for two new Post-doctoral Fellows in Interdisciplinary Legal Studies and one or two new Mid-career/Senior Fellows in Interdisciplinary Legal Studies for terms beginning during the 2022-2023 academic year.

1. Post-doctoral Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Legal Studies at The Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy

The Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy at the University at Buffalo School of Law plans to award up to two fellowships to scholars pursuing important topics in law, legal institutions, and social policy.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are invited from junior scholars from law, the humanities, and the social and natural sciences. The Baldy Center welcomes scholars from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to continue to cultivate and maintain a diverse and inclusive law school environment.

Fellows are expected to participate regularly in Baldy Center events, but otherwise have no obligations beyond vigorously pursuing their research. Fellows receive standard university research privileges (access to university libraries, high-speed Internet, office space, computer equipment, phone, website space, working paper series, etc.), and are encouraged to develop collaborative research projects with faculty members where appropriate.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships are available to individuals who have completed the PhD or JD but have not yet begun a tenure-track appointment. Post-Doctoral Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $50,000, up to $2,000 in annual professional travel support, and limited relocation assistance.
