The Guarini Center, housed at NYU School of Law, is an academic research center that advances energy and environmental policies to support the transition towards a sustainable economy.  The Student Fellow in Sustainable Energy Law and Policy (“Fellow”) will assist with our research efforts to develop policy and regulatory frameworks that will stimulate the growth of low-carbon energy resources, improve resiliency, and enhance energy efficiency. The Student Fellow’s work would likely focus on issues relating to the advancement of urban environmental law and policy.

This fellowship is designed for promising NYU law students with an interest in energy and environmental law policy.  The Fellow will be expected to produce written papers directed at both policy and academic audiences; to assist in convening workshops, talks and conferences; and to engage energy policy leaders and constituencies in the New York region as well as elsewhere within NYU.  In addition to excellent research and writing skills, the Fellow should possess an ability to think creatively, generate innovative ideas that map out practical ways for implementation, and work as part of a team. Prior coursework and professional experience in environmental and/or energy issues is valued, but not essential.
