News and Announcements

NYU Information Law Institute Research Fellowships Available for 2020-21

The Information Law Institute at NYU is accepting applications for research fellowships to begin in Fall 2020.  The initial fellowship term is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.  Applicants should hold a law degree or a Ph.D. in a relevant area, and show interest and promise in conducting research and writing.   We will give preference to applicants with demonstrated interest in ILI areas of focus, including privacy regulation (including overlaps with innovation and competition issues), biometrics, algorithms and automated decision-making, and other areas of information/data law, policy, technology and social science. 

Research fellows will devote most of their time to their own research and to collaborative projects.  Collaborative projects will be supervised by ILI faculty. Fellows often have access to research assistance from NYU JD students. Fellows will also be expected to take part in planning and implementing ILI events and/or assisting with the ILI’s online engagement.  Teaching may be an option, depending on availability and interest.

Fellows are expected to reside in the New York area, attend weekly meetings of ILI’s multidisciplinary Privacy Research Group and weekly Fellows’ meetings and participate in ILI conferences and events. They will also have ample opportunity to interact with faculty in the School of Law and other departments at NYU, and to take part in the lively intellectual life of the university and New York City. 

Applications (by email) and inquiries should be addressed to ILI administrator Nicole Arzt, nicole.arzt@nyu.edu, and should consist of a single pdf file containing: a CV, copies of 2 relevant publications or writing samples, a transcript of graduate work (unofficial is acceptable), the names and contact information of three references, and a cover letter summarizing the candidate’s relevant background and accomplishments and outlining his or her perceived fit with the ILI.  We will review applications on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.  Applications received on or before February 21 will be given priority.
