A great opportunity for any young scholar interested in property or land use:
The Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy at New York University invites applications for a post-graduate legal fellowship. The Furman Center’s law fellowships are designed for promising legal scholars with a strong interest in housing, local government, real estate or land use law. The Fellow’s time is shared equally between independent research on topics of their choice and preparation to enter the academic job market, and Furman Center projects, conducted jointly with faculty members, graduate students, and staff. Recent projects have addressed such topics as the consequences of mortgage foreclosures, the effects of inclusionary zoning, and the impact of housing vouchers on crime. The Fellow also helps produce the Center’s annual State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods report. The Law Fellow is invited to participate in faculty workshops, colloquia, and other scholarly forums at the NYU School of Law. The fellowship typically begins summer/fall of 2015.
A J.D. degree, superior academic achievement, excellent writing skills, initiative, and a demonstrated interest in and commitment to scholarship are required.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, scholarly writing sample, and the names and contact information of 3 references. Applications are preferred by 12/1/2014 but will be given consideration until the position is filled. Review of applications will begin immediately and will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Candidates of interest only will be contacted.
To apply: Application materials and questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Legal Research Position” in the subject line.
