With thanks to Professor S.I. Strong for bringing these openings to our attention, there are serveral fellowships currently accepting applications that might be of interest to our readers.
The first position is the Brandon Research Fellowship at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The Brandon Fellowship supports research on various topics of international public and private law, including international arbitration. Further details are available at http://www.lcil.cam.ac.uk/news/content/brandon-research-fellowships-international-law-2014 . The closing date for applications is September 23, 2013.
The second position is also based at the Lauterpacht Centre. This fellowship is sponsored by the British Red Cross and involves research relating to the International Committee of the Red Cross Study on Customary International Humanitarian Law. More information can be found at http://www.redcross.org.uk/About-us/Jobs or by contacting Elizabeth Knight on EKnight@redcross.org.uk or 020 7877 7452 quoting ref number UKO 46734. The closing date is September 22, 2013.
The final position is the U.S. Supreme Court Fellowship in Washington, D.C. Four fellowships are awarded each year, and several of the positions provide the opportunity to consider matters relating to international and comparative law. Although the fellowships are affiliated with the U.S. Supreme Court, there does not appear to be a requirement that candidates be U.S. nationals, although applicants from outside the United States should check. The program has been significantly revamped this year and is now open to both junior and mid-career candidates. Further information is available at http://www.supremecourt.gov/fellows/default.aspx. Applications are due by November 15, 2013.
