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 energy and environmental law and policy.
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, low-carbon economy. The Legal Fellow will assist with our research efforts to develop policy and regulatory frameworks that will stimulate the growth of renewable energy resources, improve resiliency, and enhance energy efficiency at the city, state and international levels. Our work currently focuses on issues including the promotion of energy efficiency throughout New York City’s building stock, the development of regulatory frameworks that will encourage the decarbonization of the electricity system, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions internationally, including those associated with international maritime transportation.
The Fellow will be expected to produce a series of written papers directed at both policy and academic audiences and to prepare issue briefs for workshops, talks and conferences. In addition to excellent research and writing skills, the Fellow should be entrepreneurial and think creatively about policy, be a self-starter, and have the ability to write independently.
Qualifications: Juris Doctor degree is required. Demonstrated experience working on energy and/or environmental law and policy is strongly preferred. The fellow will be appointed for a year beginning in September 2018. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
