The Project on the Foundations of Private Law at Harvard Law School is seeking applicants for full-time, one- to two-year residential appointments, starting in the fall of 2020 — in particular, it is seeking applicants for both the Postdoctoral Fellowship in Private Law and the Qualcomm Postdoctoral Fellowship in Private Law and Intellectual Property. Application materials are due to Bradford Conner (conner at law.harvard.edu) by 9:00 a.m. on February 21, 2020.
For those unfamiliar with the Project, the Project on the Foundations of Private Law at Harvard is an interdisciplinary research program at dedicated to the academic investigation of "private law," meaning the traditional common law subjects of property, contracts, and torts, as well as related subjects that are more heavily statutory, such as intellectual property and commercial law. Lots of great property law and IP faculty are involved with the Project including Henry Smith, Robert Sitkoff, Ruth Okediji, and Molly Brady, to name a few, so it is a terrific opportunity for individuals interested in property law and looking for a postdoc fellowship.
