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. This is a full-time term appointment for one-year, and there is a strong potential for additional one-year appointments contingent on business and funding. As such, candidates should be interested in spending two to three years at Harvard Law School (longer periods may be possible). Candidates should have a J.D., LL.M., or S.J.D. from a U.S. law school, or a Ph.D. in economics, finance, or related areas by the time they commence their fellowship. Candidates still pursuing an S.J.D. or Ph.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, Post-Graduate Academic Fellows work on research and corporate governance activities of the Program, depending on their skills, interests, and Program needs. Fellows may also work on their own research and publishing in preparation for a career in academia or policy research. Former Fellows of the Program now teach in leading law schools in the U.S. and abroad.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
