Call for Applications: Fellowship in Human Rights, Inequality, and the Future of Work. The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas at Austin, an interdisciplinary human rights center housed in the School of Law, seeks applications for a post-doctoral or research fellowship beginning 1 July 2021 and running through to 30 July 2022. The fellow, working closely with the Center’s co-directors and staff, will provide intellectual and administrative leadership for a multi-year project on human rights and economic inequality, which will be entering its seventh year.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, beginning 22 April 2021.
