Open Position: SLP seeks Research FellowsPosted Date: November 1, 2013
The Robina Institute’s Sentencing Law and Policy Program Area (“SLP”) is one of three program areas within the Institute. SLP has recently received augmented funding from the Robina Foundation to work on four projects over the next 3-5 years in the fields of sentencing and corrections. The Institute’s sentencing programs are strongly interdisciplinary; accordingly, funding has been obtained to hire at least two research fellows, with complementary backgrounds (e.g., social science, law, or public policy).
There will be two dimensions to each Research Fellow’s responsibilities. First and primarily, under the guidance of the co-directors of the Institute’s Sentencing Law and Policy (“SLP”) program area, the Research Fellow will pursue a program of assigned and self directed research. Second, under the guidance of the Executive Director and program area directors, the Research Fellow will help to organize and administer the Institute’s activities. This will include coordination of workshops, conferences and other activities as well as coordination and dissemination of communications for the Institute. The Research Fellow will have the opportunity, but will not be required, to engage in a small amount of teaching, subject to agreement with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The positions will begin in September 2014 (or earlier, if mutually agreeable to the candidate and the SLP co-directors).
