Scholarship: Baldy Fellowships in Interdisciplinary Legal Studies for 2013-14, SUNY Buffalo Law School‏

Building on the success of our inaugural Baldy Fellows, I am pleased to announce that the Baldy Center is inviting Fellowship applications for 2013-2014.

Baldy Fellowships in Interdisciplinary Legal Studies are available to post-doctoral, mid-career, and senior scholars. This year's application form is at: .
Completed applications are due February 1, 2013. It is important that all applications be submitted through our web-based system, both so that we can track all applications and so that our reviewers can readily access them. Further information on the Fellowships and application process is provided below and on the Baldy Center website:

We are excited about our first group of Baldy Fellows -- anthropologist Mireille Abelin, historian Kathleen Biddick, constitutional theorist Nimer Sultany, and sociologist Julia Tomassetti. You can read their biographies on our website: We are eager to bring an equally outstanding group of scholars to the Center next year.

The Baldy Center for Law & Social Policy at the State University of New York at Buffalo plans to award several fellowships for 2013-14 to scholars pursuing important topics in law, legal institutions, and social policy. Applications are invited from junior and senior scholars from law, the humanities, and the social sciences.

Fellows are expected to participate regularly in Baldy Center events, but otherwise have no obligations beyond vigorously pursuing their research. Fellows receive standard university research privileges (access to UB libraries, high-speed Internet, office space, computer equipment, phone, website space, working paper series,
etc.) and are encouraged to develop collaborative research projects with SUNY Buffalo faculty members where appropriate. Those who wish to teach a course to aid their research or gain teaching experience will be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships are available to individuals who have completed the PhD or JD but have not yet begun a tenure track appointment. Post-Doctoral Fellows will receive a stipend of $40,000 and may apply for up to $2000 in professional travel support. Mid-Career and Senior Fellowships are available as sabbatical supplements to established scholars who wish to work at the Center.
Stipends will be commensurate with experience, need, and duration of visit.

Application materials include: (1) a description of the planned research (question, conceptual framework, method, possible findings, importance to the field), (2) a complete academic and professional resume, (3) an academic writing sample, and (4) the names and contact information of three academic references. Applications should be submitted no later than February 1, 2013 at: For further information, see our answers to frequently asked questions. Additional questions about the Baldy Fellows Program should be addressed to Assistant Director Laura Wirth, or (716) 645-2581.
