CodeX – The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics is accepting applications for a Resident Fellowship for the 2022-23 academic year. CodeX is a cross-disciplinary research center jointly operated by Stanford Law School and the Stanford School of Engineering. The center's mission is to explore the application of technology toward improving the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of the legal system. Codex research fellows will have the opportunity to spend one to two years at Stanford Law School collaborating with scholars in computer science and other relevant disciplines. Fellows will work on the center's existing projects, and will have the opportunity to explore related research on their own and commence new projects. Fellows will work with cutting-edge technologies emerging from Stanford's engineering departments and will be expected to bring a legally oriented perspective toward integrating these technologies into the law. Fellows will also be involved in bringing in leading thinkers in the field to speak at the law school on these topic areas and will work with law and computer science students to engage them in the center's activities. The fellowship position reports directly to the CodeX Executive Director.

Because the primary focus of the center is employing technology within the law, applicants should also have experience in legal-, computer science-, or engineering-related fields. We welcome applicants with practical/professional technical experience in these fields as well as those with formal legal, computer science, or engineering undergraduate or graduate training. Applicants should be capable of learning and be comfortable with the technological aspects of the center's projects.

Consistent with its obligations under the law, the university will provide reasonable accommodation to any employee with a disability who requires accommodation to perform the essential functions of the job.

How to Apply:

All qualified and interested applicants must apply via the Stanford jobs website: https://careersearch.stanford.edu/ (Requisition ID 91822) and include:

  • A resume

  • A brief letter (no more than 2 pages) describing the applicant's interest in issues related to applying technology to the law, the applicant's background, and the research that the applicant proposes to conduct

  • A list of references

Review of applications will begin immediately, and all applications must be received by January 14, 2022. For more information about the Stanford CodeX Center and its projects please visit http://codex.stanford.edu, or contact CodeX Executive Director Roland Vogl at rvogl@law.stanford.edu.
