Post-graduate Fellowship in Human Rights
The Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, one of the nation's only interdisciplinary human rights centers, seeks a talented, versatile and energetic recent graduate of law or a human rights related field to serve as a Human Rights Fellow for one year beginning in August 2010.
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. The Fellow will work under the supervision of the Center's director, and collaborate with staff in the day-to-day operations and academic programs of the Center; help design and facilitate academic, curricular and research and advocacy projects with the Center's affiliated faculty and students; and serve as a mentor to a limited number of law, graduate and undergraduate students.
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. The ideal candidate will be a recent graduate who possesses solid written and verbal communication skills, significant experience in human rights research, teaching, or activism, fluency in a foreign language (particularly Spanish), and a desire to work closely with the Center's faculty and students.
This one-year fellowship has a monthly salary range of $3333-$3750. In addition, the fellow will have access to University of Texas facilities and employee benefits. Ideally, the fellowship will begin on August 2, 2010.
To apply, please follow this link to The University of Texas job posting: http://utdirect.utexas.edu/pnjobs/pnjobsvw.WBX?job_nbr=10-03-31-01-4007
We will begin considering applications beginning May 1 and on a rolling basis thereafter.
