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.

The Baldy Center for Law & Social Policy at the State University of New York at 
Buffalo plans to award several fellowships to scholars pursuing important 
topics in law, legal institutions, and social policy. 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. Information on 
current and past Baldy Post-Doctoral Fellows is available 

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. Senior Fellows 
typically spend one semester in residence, but other terms are possible. 
Information on current and past Baldy Senior Fellows is available
