Fw: National Security Fellowship Opportunity at Georgetown Law School
- Hello everyone,
As my last official act as President, I am very happy to pass on this
announcement to all the graduating students on this list. In DC we've been
waiting very impatiently for this Center to finally be completed, and now we
can encourage anyone interested in this field to file an application for
this very cool looking fellowship. Even though no deadline is listed, I
inquired further and learned that the deadline is June 18th, so you should
send in your applications in the next couple of weeks.
Good luck to everyone, and have a great summer. It's been wonderful working
with you all.
1. Georgetown's soon-to-be-launched Center on National Security and the
Law seeks inaugural fellows
Later this year, Georgetown University will launch a Center on National
Security and the Law. The Center will be the premier locale for
scholarship and policy on this vital set of issues. As part of this
Center, Georgetown University is seeking exceptionally qualified
candidates to serve as Fellows. Housed at Georgetown Law Center, in the
heart of the nation's Capitol, the Center will attempt to provide the
most creative and interesting solutions for the range of problems our
country has faced since the nation was attacked on September 11, 2001.
With a world-class faculty that has been at the heart of these issues,
such as Viet Dinh (the author of the USA PATRIOT Act), David Cole
(author of the prize winning book Enemy Aliens and litigator in major
national security cases), Neal Katyal (who won the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld
Supreme Court case that invalidated the Guantanamo military tribunals);
and a variety of other faculty, Georgetown believes that it will be able
to contribute meaningfully to the policy and academic debate surrounding
national security policy.
Full-time candidates will be based at Georgetown University Law Center
and will report to the Director of the National Security Center. The
Center Fellow will work primarily on research projects, production of
scholarly works for publication, litigation projects, and Institute
activities such as research colloquia, policy work, and grant writing.
Candidates must have their J.D. degree, and exceptional academic
credentials, including publication and strong research interests and
knowledge or experience in national security policy and/or
Salary will be $60,000 with outstanding benefits. Fellowships will be
offered for one or two years.
Application should be made by letter, with accompanying CV, writing
sample, professional references, official law school transcript, and
other graduate school transcript (if applicable). Applications should be
directed to the attention of National Security Fellowship Application,
