The Yale Information Society Project is expanding its current research program in innovation and intellectual property (IP) reform and seeks applicants for a 2008-2009 resident fellowship at Yale Law School. The fellowship will last for one year and may be extended to a second year.
The program’s purpose is twofold: (1) to research the effects of domestic and international intellectual property laws and alternative mechanisms for knowledge production; (2) to suggest reforms that will promote the values of human development, economic growth, innovation and social justice.
Applicants should be recent graduates of law or Ph.D. programs with a background in law and economics, economics, or allied policy fields. Fellows receive a salary of approximately $42,225 plus Yale benefits. A small number of visiting fellowships in this program are also available for scholars who bring their own sources of funding.
