LPE@HLS is pleased to announce two exciting opportunities for postdoctoral fellowships beginning in summer 2024! Applications for both fellowships are due September 1, 2023.
First, the Academic Fellowship in Law and Political Economy is a two-year, residential postdoctoral program specifically designed to identify, cultivate, and promote promising scholars early in their careers with a primary interest in law and political economy. The fellowship is open to holders of a JD or SJD from a law school in the United States who seek to focus on LPE as a theoretical and a pedagogical approach, or on programmatic efforts aimed at transformation of areas critical to American law and political economy, such as labor, racial capitalism, economic regulation, monetary design and finance, mass incarceration or other dimensions of criminal enforcement, voting rights, and technology. More information about the Academic Fellowship can be found on the application page.
Second, the Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Political Economy of Law, Technology, and Labor is a one-year, residential postdoctoral position designed to support a promising early-career scholar whose work examines the interrelationships between legal institutions, technological development, and class relations. Their research agenda should seek to understand how law and technology interact to transform the nature of work, shape dimensions of status-subordination and economic power in market societies, and impact terrains for collective struggle, conflict, and powerbuilding. We invite applications from graduates of JD programs, or an equivalent terminal degree in law, as well as PhD graduates from a relevant social science discipline.
