Privacy Research Fellowship at NYU Available for 2013-14
The Information Law Institute of NYU’s Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy is accepting applications for one-year fellowships in the area of privacy law and policy to begin in Fall 2013. The fellowship is open to law school graduates or PhDs in relevant disciplines with excellent credentials. Additional legal or policy experience is a plus, particularly if in a related field. While in residence at NYU School of Law, the fellow will be expected to devote time to joint projects, pursue his or her own privacy-related research agenda and help with programming of topical events. Joint research may be supervised by Helen Nissenbaum (Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication), Katherine Strandburg (Professor of Law), or Ira Rubinstein (ILI Senior Fellow). A special focus for 2013-14 will be education privacy in light of cloud computing and other third-party educational service providers (e.g. MOOCs). Thus, a basic understanding of relevant law (or willingness to learn quickly), ability to engage with US regulatory agencies as well as corporate and educational actors, and some appreciation of underlying technologies would be a plus.
The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in Information Law Institute activities, including the multidisciplinary Privacy Research Group, to interact with other faculty associated with the ILI and Engelberg Center, and to take part in many other activities at NYU School of Law. Further information about the ILI and our associated Privacy Research Group is available at http://www.law.nyu.edu/centers/ili/index.htm.
Applications for the fellowship should be sent by email to ILI assistant Nicole Arzt, firstname.lastname@example.org, and should include: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of or links to any relevant publications, and the names and contact information of three references. We will begin reviewing applications on March 20 and continue until the position is filled.
The fellowship is supported by a grant from Microsoft Corporation.
