Crane Fellowship in Law and Public Policy

The Princeton School of Public and International Affairs invites applications for visiting law faculty fellows in Law and Public Policy for the academic year 2024-25. This full-time visiting program is open to legal scholars actively engaged in research and writing on topics related to contemporary issues in law and public policy.

Fellows are expected to reside in or around Princeton or demonstrate to the program's satisfaction the ability to be on campus most days of the week during the academic year. Fellows are expected to pursue their own research project and to be active contributors to the intellectual life of the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA), including through participation in a weekly works-in-progress lunch seminar with Princeton colleagues and visiting speakers. While no teaching is required, fellows are expected to conceive and organize an interdisciplinary Problem-Solving Workshop to be held at some point during their fellowship focused on a policy problem related to the subject of their research. Guidance and staff support will be available to help fellows design a useful workshop that advances their research and thinking, with space available on campus or at SPIA’s meeting facilities in Washington, D.C.

Candidates must hold a JD degree and have a strong record of research publications appropriate to their career stage. Typically, fellows hold full-time law faculty positions at other universities or colleges. Scholars not eligible to receive their standard academic salary from their home institutions during their fellowship year may be eligible to receive up to one-half of their standard academic-year salary for the appointment period, up to a maximum of $90,000.

Applications will open December, 2024.
