Call for Applications
The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas School of Law is pleased to invite applications for a post-graduate fellowship. Founded in 2004, the Center connects students, practitioners, and academics with the mission of building a multidisciplinary community engaged in the study and practice of human rights that promote the economic and political enfranchisement of marginalized individuals and groups both locally and globally. For more on the Center, see http://www.utexas.edu/law/academics/centers/humanrights/. 

The Fellowship is a two-year position intended for recent graduates of law or a human rights related field who seek to gain experience in the research and practice of international human rights issues in a multidisciplinary academic setting. The fellow will be expected to collaborate with the Center’s Director and staff in the day-to-day operations and programs of the Center; help design and facilitate academic and special research and advocacy projects with the Center’s multidisciplinary faculty and students; and serve as a mentor to a limited number of law, graduate and undergraduate students. The fellow may also have the opportunity to create and teach an undergraduate course on human rights. 

Although a J.D. or PhD is preferred for this position, the Center encourages applications from individuals with masters’ degrees in a related field and significant experience in human rights research, teaching, or activism. Ideal candidates would possess solid written and verbal communication skills, fluency in a foreign language (particularly Spanish), and have a desire to work closely with the Center’s faculty and students. 

This two-year, non-renewable Fellowship has a salary of $42,500. In addition, fellows would have access to all University of Texas facilities and employee benefits. Ideally, the fellowship will begin on September 1, 2008. 

Application materials must include: 
Cover letter describing interest and background in human rights research and/or advocacy, as well as other relevant qualifications 
CV/Resume, including all publications 
Writing sample 
List of three references with contact information

The search committee will begin considering applications on August 1, 2008. To apply by email or regular mail, please send the above materials to:
