Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellowship at Indiana University

The Center for Law, Society and Culture at the Indiana University School of Law-Bloomington announces the creation of the Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellowship. According to the announcement,
The Center will appoint up to three post-doctoral fellows per year beginning with the 2009-10 academic year. We invite applications from scholars of law, the humanities, or social sciences working in the field of sociolegal studies. Pre-tenure scholars, recently awarded PhDs, and those with equivalent professional degrees are encouraged to apply. Advanced graduate students may also apply, but evidence of completion of the doctoral degree or its equivalent is required before beginning the fellowship.

Fellows will devote a full academic year to research and writing in furtherance of a major scholarly project, and will receive a stipend plus a research allowance, health insurance, other benefits, and workspace at Indiana Law. They will conduct research at Indiana University and participate in the activities of the Center, which include an annual symposium, a colloquia series, and regular workshops and lectures.
The application form and more information are available here. A brief account of Jerome Hall (pictured above) is here.
