Academic Fellow

The Program on Corporate Governance is seeking applications from highly qualified candidates who are interested in working with the Program as Post-Graduate Academic Fellows in the areas of corporate governance, and law and finance. Applicants should be aspiring academics at the initial stage of their careers with a primary interest in corporate law and corporate governance.  Former Fellows of the Program now teach in leading law schools in the U.S. and abroad.

This is a full-time residential appointment for two years, contingent on business and funding. Candidates should have a J.D., LL.M., or S.J.D. from a U.S. law school by the time they commence their fellowship. Candidates still pursuing an S.J.D. are eligible so long as they will have completed their program’s coursework requirements by the time they start.

During the term of their appointment, Fellows are required to work on research and other activities of the Program, depending on their skills, interests, and Program needs. Fellows will also be able to spend a substantial fraction of their time on their own independent research in preparation for a career in academia or policy research.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis, and the start date is flexible. Interested candidates should submit a CV, transcripts, writing sample, list of references, and cover letter to the coordinator of the Program, Ms. Jordan Figueroa, at [email protected]. The cover letter should describe the candidate’s experience, reasons for seeking the position, career plans, and their own research projects. The position includes Harvard University benefits and a competitive fellowship salary.
