Government Procurement Law Fellowship

The George Washington University Law School seeks applications for a one-year graduate Fellowship, specializing in government procurement law, beginning as early as spring 2019, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. The Fellow will have the title of Visiting Associate Professor of Law.  

The Fellow will be expected to assist in strengthening the law school’s institutional support of government procurement law-related studies. The Fellow will assist with the development and teaching of online courses. The Fellow will interact with and advise JD and graduate students in GW’s Government Procurement Law Program. The Fellow will engage in research and writing related to the work of the Program and will have the opportunity to publish work that results from the research. Finally, the Fellow will be responsible for some routine administrative tasks in support of the Government Procurement Law Program. Additional information on the Government Procurement Law Program’s history, degree offerings, activities, and faculty is available here.

We seek applications from candidates with strong legal academic backgrounds and some professional experience.  A JD or LLM degree (or international equivalent) with coursework in Government Procurement Law is required, published scholarship in the field is a plus, and relevant experience will be considered. Fellows receive an annual stipend of $55,000, health insurance, and other benefits associated with a full-time position at GW.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Applicants should send a letter of interest (including availability to work on campus), a resume (or c.v.), a list of references, and a complete law school transcript to Karen D. Thornton, Director of the Government Procurement Law Program. The preferred submission method is by email to [email protected]. In the alternative, applications can be mailed to Karen D. Thornton, Director, Government Procurement Law Program, George Washington University Law School, 2000 H St., NW, Washington, DC 20052.  The George Washington University Law School is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and the University undertakes special efforts to employ a diverse workforce.
