The Center for the Study of the Legal Profession at Georgetown University Law Center (CSLP) invites applications for the position of Research Fellow for the 2010-2011 academic year. The Fellow will be based at Georgetown Law Center.

Research Fellows are invited to participate in CSLP and Law Center activities, including those directed to students, practitioners, and the research community.
CSLP promotes interdisciplinary scholarship on the profession informed by the challenges of contemporary legal practice; participates in the debate about regulation of the legal profession, both in the US and internationally; and investigates the role of globalization as it relates to the profession and legal education. Our current projects include a large-scale survey of Georgetown law graduates, an interview research project exploring how formal policies and informal norms shape law firm culture, and a study of law firm use of permanent salaried lawyers. CSLP also aims to provide students with a sophisticated understanding of the opportunities and challenges of a modern legal career and to furnish members of the profession, particularly those in organizational decision-making positions, with rigorous research that provides broad perspectives on trends and developments in practice. For more information on CSLP and its activities, please review our website at http://www.law.georgetown.edu/legalprofession/.
Applicants must have earned a JD or its equivalent and/or have earned or be working on a PhD in a relevant discipline (such as sociology, economics, political science, business, or anthropology). Training in quantitative empirical research methods is required, and experience working with survey data would be especially useful. To apply for the position, please submit a CV and a statement (3 pages maximum) describing your educational background, empirical research skills and experience, and research interests, and explaining how your background and interests relate to the activities of CSLP. Please also address how the position fits into your overall career goals.
We will begin reviewing applications immediately (May 26, 2010) and will continue until the position is filled. The Research Fellow will be appointed to a twelve-month term beginning in the fall of 2010.
The Research Fellow will earn a stipend of $62,500 plus benefits.
