Yale Law School and the Yale University Philosophy Department seek to appoint a Law and Philosophy Fellow for two years beginning July 1, 2020. A Ph.D. in philosophy by time of appointment is expected, though in unusual cases a J.D. accompanied by strong training in philosophy, will be considered. Law degree (J.D. or foreign equivalent) is helpful, but not required. The Fellow’s research should intersect with issues of interest to legal scholars. Examples would include work on normative concepts such as equality and punishment; investigation of the philosophical dimensions of a substantive area of law, such as criminal law, constitutional law, contract law, or property; research that bears on the legal dimensions of intention, evidence, or agency; research on the philosophy of language, or political philosophy, as applied to the law; and work in jurisprudence. The Fellow will be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School and the philosophy department, pursue his or her research, and teach two courses over the two year period, one in the philosophy department (planned in coordination with the DUS, DGS and Chair) and one in the Law School (subject to faculty approval). The Fellow’s primary affiliation will be with the Law School in one year and with the philosophy department in the other.
Teaching duties are modest and will contribute to the Fellow’s research. Salary is $52K/year + benefits.
