Columbia Law School’s Millstein Center seeks a Postdoctoral
Fellow to take on a leadership role in the Center’s ongoing
research on corporate governance; private capital markets;
environmental, social, and sustainability issues; and more.
The Fellowship is designed to attract excellent candidates from
underrepresented groups. This search criterion recognizes that the
field of academic business law remains significantly less diverse
than the legal profession and the nation as a whole. The
Millstein Center Postdoctoral Fellowship aims to cultivate the next
generation of leading business law scholars from traditionally
underrepresented groups. The Fellowship is also designed to
support recent law graduates who have demonstrated a strong
interest in legal scholarship. It particularly supports the
training and development of prospective law professors who will
enhance the diversity of the profession. The Fellow will have
business law faculty mentors who support the Fellow on the market;
office space and a research budget; and full involvement in faculty
workshops, academic activities, libraries, and research
The Fellow will commit to working with the Millstein Center’s
Executive Director, Associate Director, and the Faculty
Co-Directors to produce applied research, pedagogy, and other
outputs that will assist the Center in producing various research
reports. Successful performance will require both assisting with
ongoing projects and generating original research, as well as
communicating research findings clearly and through a variety of
media and formats to a range of audiences in a manner that
maximizes impact and contributes to the University’s wider research
and convening efforts.
The Fellow’s activities will include:
- conducting sophisticated and in-depth academically focused
research into corporate governance; corporate environmental,
social, and sustainability issues; private capital markets; and
- publishing supporting analyses and resources in academic and
practitioner-oriented publications, as well as Millstein Center
- conducting research-related outreach and communicating research
findings to the Millstein Center Advisory Board and to relevant
professional networks and associations; and
- supporting other Center projects and initiatives.
This is a two-year appointment.
- J.D. or equivalent legal degree.
- Strong research and analytical skills, with demonstrated
ability to synthesize, categorize, and do basic analysis on data
Preferred minimum of two to three years’ postgraduate training
