Quattrone Center Research Fellow


Location: University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School
Open Date: May 25, 2021
Deadline: Dec 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time

About the Quattrone Center:

The Quattrone Center is a research and policy hub housed at the Law School. The interdisciplinary Center brings together faculty from across the University of Pennsylvania and the nation, collaborating with criminal justice practitioners in an interdisciplinary approach to reduce errors in the administration of justice. The Quattrone Center has rapidly established itself as a thought leader on issues pertaining to the reduction of errors in criminal justice and is the chief proponent for blending law and scientific research (both social science and new technology) in a “systems approach” to improving the criminal justice system. The Center applies techniques from healthcare, aviation, and other industries focused on safety, quality control, reliability, etc. in ways that unify participants in the criminal justice system to implement, evaluate, and expand best practices in the administration of justice.

About the Fellowship:

Designed for scholars interested in pursuing academic careers in areas related to the Quattrone Center's work, fellows enjoy faculty access to the Law School's services and full participation in all Quattrone Center events. This is a full-time commitment and fellows are expected to be in residence at the Law School for the duration of the fellowship. Fellows receive a full year of funding and are eligible for renewal for an additional year. Fellows are expected to produce at least one original academic work during each year of funding. In addition to conducting their individual research and writing projects, each fellow's responsibilities will also include providing support for the Quattrone Center's existing and new programs, including the development of reports and proposals.


Qualifications
Requirements:

To be eligible, prospective fellows must meet one of the following criteria:
  1. Have earned a law degree. (Fellow candidates with at least 2 years of post-graduate experience will be strongly preferred; this experience may be legal practice, a judicial clerkship or other relevant legal experience); or
  2. Have completed, or are in the terminal stage of a PhD or equivalent academic program, and have not yet held a full-time tenure track academic appointment

The fellowship is open to individuals with a background in law as well as those with a background in social science (e.g. sociology, psychology, economics, criminology, etc.) or medicine, with a proven familiarity with criminal justice research.
