Hauser Research Scholars
Information for Interested Candidates
The application deadline for participation in the Hauser Research Scholars Program for the 2013-2014 academic year is the first Monday in January (January 7, 2013).
The Hauser Research Scholars Program is open to non-US junior academics from outside of the United States who wish to spend a full academic year at NYU School of Law working on a major piece of legal scholarship. Preference will be given to candidates who have already secured a position at a university. Candidates must be on “tenure track” at their home university.
All Hauser Research Scholars must complete a significant piece of original, publishable legal scholarship in English during their year in residence at NYU School of Law. Scholars must present their work at the Global Fellows Forums, to be held once during the fall semester and once during the spring semester.
All Hauser Research Scholars are required to be in residence at the Law School for the full academic year (fall and spring semesters). Recipients will be expected to fully participate in the intellectual life of the Law School. They must attend and participate in the Global Fellows Forums and are encouraged to participate in colloquia, seminars and other such events within their areas of interest. Appointment as a Hauser Research Scholar will be incompatible with any concurrent appointment or engagement (i.e. practice, fellowships, teaching, etc.) outside the Law School during the full academic year.
All Hauser Research Scholars will receive US$20,000 (subject to tax) to assist with the cost of living in New York City for one academic year. However, we encourage all Hauser Research Scholars to seek other sources of funding outside NYU School of Law to support their participation in the program.
Each participant in the Hauser Research Scholars Program will be assigned a Faculty Sponsor at the NYU School of Law following admission to the program. Furthermore, participants are strongly encouraged to affiliate with one of the specialized centers or institutes at NYU School of Law. Affiliation means the scholar is included in the center or institute’s activities and may be given an affiliated title, such as the Global Emile Noel Research Fellow, for affiliation with the Jean Monnet Center. Applicants must indicate their center affiliation preference on the application. Further information about each center and institute can be found at http://www.law.nyu.edu/centers/index.htm.
All participants in the Hauser Research Scholars Program must have adequate health insurance to cover them and any family members who will accompany them during their stay in the United States. Participants in the Hauser Research Scholars Program must make arrangements for health insurance before they arrive in the United States so that they are covered as from their date of arrival. The program will provide information on obtaining local coverage following admission to the program.
The Hauser Global Law School Program will sponsor the relevant visa to enter the U.S. and remain in the U.S. for the duration of the appointment. It is important to note that, in such cases, proof of funding or assets in the amount of US$2,000 per month of residence in the US will be required. Visas can be issued to spouses and children, provided that fellows can demonstrate they possess US$650/month to support the spouse and US$300/month per child for the duration of the visit. Further information regarding visa requirements will be provided following admission to the Hauser Research Scholars program.
Review of Applications and Decision Notification
Successful applicants will have outstanding academic records at all levels of university training and a demonstrated commitment to the advancement of their scholarly project and their future professional life. Standards for admission to the Hauser Research Scholars Program are extremely high, but not arbitrary. Candidates may expect to receive a decision in late February.
Applicants who are not successful will automatically be considered for the Global Fellows Program whose decisions will be issued in late March. No additional application materials need to be submitted to be considered for the Global Fellows Program.
