The UCLA School of Law and the UCLA Department of Philosophy offer one to two year postdoctoral research fellowships to recent law school graduates or Ph.D.s in philosophy. The fellowship is under the auspices of the UCLA Program in Law and Philosophy. Fellows are usually asked to teach two courses in the first year and one course in the second year of the fellowship, attend and assist with the planning of Law and Philosophy events, and otherwise participate in the law school and philosophy department communities. The bulk of his or her time is devoted to independent research. Candidates should have a strong interest in a career involving teaching and research in law and philosophy. Typical candidates will have a post-graduate degree in law (J.D., LLM or S.J.D.) and/or a doctorate in philosophy.
The application process for the Law and Philosophy Postdoctoral Fellowship is currently closed. We plan to conduct another search in 2015 for the fall of 2016. Please check back again in fall 2015 for updated research fellowship application information.
