Seeking applications for Manhattan Institute research fellow



The Manhattan Institute's Center for Legal Policy, which I direct, is seeking applicants for a research fellowship in empirical economics and the law. We have already spoken with a few outstanding candidates but would like to broaden the nets -- so interested readers, please take note.

Our new research fellow will be expected to help create and pursue a research agenda studying the economic effects of the American civil justice system. Applicants should be interested in how legal incentives function with markets, have clear thoughts about problems in contemporary tort law, and have some ideas about how to develop an empirical program in this area. Applicants should ideally have a PhD in economics or a comparable indicator of statistical aptitude, in addition to a strong interest in and familiarity with the law, if not a JD degree.

Manhattan Institute fellows need not live or work in New York; our fellows are typically off-site (though you get plenty of opportunities to interact with folks like our editor Walter Olson and senior fellow Peter Huber). Pay for this position will be very competitive with comparable non-profit opportunities. Applications for part-time fellowships will be considered. If interested, please contact me at jcopland -at- manhattan-institute.org, (212) 599-7000.
