Please circulate to any recent (or forthcoming) PhD students with interests in interdisciplinary legal studies. We have a vibrant collaboration between the Law School and College of Arts and Sciences here at UB, and the Postdoc position allows recent graduates the opportunity to pursue their own research while joining the intellectual community at the Baldy Center for Law & Social Policy. There are also openings for senior scholars who might be looking for a sabbatical home. It would be great to see more geographers apply.

Applications are invited from junior and senior scholars from law, the humanities, and the social and natural sciences. 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 Ph.D. or J.D. but have not yet begun a tenure-track appointment. Post-Doctoral Fellows will receive a stipend of $40,000, up to $2000 in annual professional travel support, and appropriate relocation assistance. Post-doctoral fellowships are ordinarily for a period of two academic years.

Senior Fellowships are available for established scholars who wish to work at the Center, typically during a funded sabbatical or research leave. Awardees will receive a living expense allowance of $1,800 per month during the period of their residence as well as appropriate relocation assistance.
