Center for Legal Policy Seeks

Senior Fellow in Economics and Tort Reform

For Immediate Release

 Contact:
Jim Copland

(212) 599-7000

The Manhattan Institute’s Center for Legal Policy is seeking a full-time research fellow to help create and pursue a research agenda studying the economic effects of the American civil justice system. One of the nation’s foremost think tanks, the Manhattan Institute has been studying civil justice in America for almost twenty years. Manhattan Institute senior fellows Peter Huber and Walter Olson have been called the “intellectual gurus of tort reform.”

 

Applicants should be interested in how legal incentives function with markets, have clear thoughts about problems in contemporary tort law, and have some ideas about how to develop an empirical program in this area. Applicants should ideally have a PhD in economics or a comparable indicator of statistical aptitude, in addition to a strong interest in and familiarity with the law, if not a JD degree.

 

Manhattan Institute fellows need not live or work in New York; our fellows are typically off-site. Pay for this position will be very competitive with comparable non-profit opportunities. A competitive package of benefits, including health insurance, is also offered. Requests for proposals on a contract basis will also be considered.

 

If interested, please contact Jim Copland, director of the Center for Legal Policy, at jcopland@manhattan-institute.org, or (212) 599-7000. CV’s for a full-time fellowship should include a list of publications and three references. CV’s for contract work should include a list of publications plus a 2-page proposal abstract.
