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.
