Hall Postdoctoral Fellowships at Indiana-Bloomington

Here's an announcement from the Law-and-Society folks at Indiana-Bloomington:

The Center for Law, Society, and Culture at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law—Bloomington will appoint up to three Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellows for the 2010-2011 academic year. We invite applications from pre-tenure scholars, recently awarded PhDs, and those with equivalent professional degrees to 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.

Scholars of law, the humanities, or social sciences working in the field of sociolegal studies 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. The stipend will be $23,000 plus a research allowance, health insurance, other benefits, and workspace at Indiana Law. Fellows are expected to be in full-time residence in Bloomington in order to take advantage of the rich intellectual life of the Center, the School of Law, and Indiana University.

A complete application consists of: (1) a research proposal (up to 10 pages); (2) curriculum vitae (with address and complete contact information), and (3) three letters of recommendation (must be sent separately)

Applications should be sent to:
Jerome Hall Postdoctoral Fellowship Program
Center for Law, Society, and Culture
Indiana University Maurer School of Law—Bloomington
211 S. Indiana Avenue
Bloomington, IN 47405

Completed applications must be received by Jan. 4, 2010, in order to ensure full consideration. The award will be announced in mid March 2010.
