The Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy at Northeastern University School of Law is Hiring an Assistant Director

The Program on Human Rights and the Global Economy (“PHRGE”) of Northeastern University School of Law (“NUSL”) was founded in 2005 as a law school-based program to engage in the study, promotion, implementation and constructive critique of rights-based approaches to economic development and social transformation, with particular attention to economic, social, and cultural (ESC) rights.

PHRGE’s mission is threefold: (1) to promote human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights, within the Northeastern community; (2) to support cutting-edge scholarship on human rights, with a particular focus on economic, social and cultural rights; and (3) to work to implement human rights norms and sound economic development approaches worldwide. To those ends, PHRGE sponsors an on-line ESC rights journal with an international circulation; develops human rights analyses, reports and briefs to support litigation and other advocacy efforts domestically and internationally; convenes scholars and activists engaged with ESC rights issues for discussion and exchanges; sponsors human rights programming at NUSL; and sponsors several funded human rights cooperative education placements for NUSL law students.

PHRGE seeks a dynamic and skilled Assistant Director to work with the Executive Director to lead the program in fulfilling its mission. This is a part-time, (2/3rds time) benefits-eligible, grant-funded position for one year, which may be renewed subject to funding.
