The Information Law Institute of NYU’s Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy is Accepting Applications for a One-Year Fellowship in the Area of Privacy Law

The Information Law Institute of NYU’s Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy is accepting applications for a one-year fellowship in the area of privacy law, with a focus on issues related to location tracking.  The fellowship is open to law school graduates with excellent credentials and will begin in Fall 2011.  

While in residence at NYU School of Law, the fellow will be expected to play a leading role in researching and writing a white paper on the subject of location tracking and privacy, disseminating the results of the study, and organizing a conference or workshop on the topic.  The fellow will also be encouraged to pursue his or her own privacy-related research agenda during the fellowship year. The location tracking project will be supervised by Helen Nissenbaum (Professor of Media, Culture, and Communication), Katherine Strandburg (Professor of Law), and Ira Rubinstein (ILI Senior Fellow).   

The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in Information Law Institute activities, including the multidisciplinary Privacy Research Group, to interact with other faculty associated with the ILI, and to take part in many other activities at NYU School of Law.  Further information about the ILI and our associated Privacy Research Group is available here.  

The ILI fellow will receive a stipend of $50,000, along with benefits.  Applications for the fellowship should be sent by email to ILI assistant Nicole Arzt, and should include:  a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of or links to any relevant publications, and the names and contact information of three references.   

The fellowship is made possible by a generous grant from Microsoft Corporation.
