Guarini Center Accepting Applications for Energy Law and Policy Fellowship

Energy Law and Policy Fellowship

The Guarini Center for Environmental, Energy and Land Use Law seeks to hire a full-time Legal Fellow to conduct policy-relevant research, writing and outreach related to innovation in sustainable energy law and policy.

The Fellow will work as a part of the Guarini Center’s Electricity System of the Future Program. The Program aims to develop legal and regulatory frameworks that will encourage the transition towards a low-carbon and resilient electricity system. The Center examines opportunities for progress at the federal, state level and international levels. Potential areas of research include the ways in which regulatory rate structures could be reconceived to promote environmental sustainability; questions concerning the division between state versus federal jurisdiction to pursue regulatory policies that impact electricity markets; and an assessment of institutional and governance reforms that are needed to encourage higher renewable energy penetration in select emerging markets.

The Fellow will be expected to produce a series of written papers directed at both policy and academic audiences and to participate in and prepare issue briefs for workshops, talks and conferences. In addition to excellent research and writing skills, the Fellow should possess an ability to think creatively, generate innovative policy ideas that map out practical ways for implementation, and work as part of a team in furthering the goals of the program.

Qualifications: Juris Doctor degree is required. Demonstrated experience working on energy related issues is strongly preferred. The fellow will be appointed for a year beginning in September 2016. Salary is competitive and benefits are generous.

To Apply: Interested applicants should send: (1) cover letter; (2) resume; (3) writing sample; (4) names of three references to spiegeld@exchange.law.nyu.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis up to February 15, 2016.
