Job Summary

The Drexel University Kline School of Law’s Center for Law and Transformational Technology invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellow, beginning September 1, 2022, with an emphasis on sociotechnical research in the areas of law, regulation, and governance at the intersection of law and technology, and the development of new technologies. Applicants from all disciplines and methodological approaches are welcome to apply. The postdoctoral fellowship begins on Sept. 1, 2022, potentially can be extended to January 1, 2023. Center for Law and Transformational Technology was created in 2021 with a seed grant from the Green Family Foundation to bring together key stakeholders, including legal and technological scholars, industry leaders, activists, regulators, and other experts from across the country and the world. The Center supports concrete efforts to gauge the legal impact of transformational technology, promote critical conversations about the role of law in technological change and bring legal experts into interdisciplinary conversations with researchers and developers at all stages of design and development. Working across industries, the Center helps educate lawyers to play a positive role navigating a technological landscape we cannot yet imagine. By facilitating international and multi-disciplinary partnerships, the Center seeks to contribute to a future in which technology moves forward hand-in-hand with society.

The Fellow will also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty and participate in workshops and symposia from across the University. Situated in the heart of Philadelphia, Kline Law and the Center for Law and Transformational Technology offer exciting opportunities to engage with the region’s intellectual and innovation communities.
