Job Posting: Partner Fellow in Law & Computer Science
Open to Georgetown Law graduates in the class of 2017

Our Faculty Director Paul Ohm and Prof. Kobbi Nissim (Georgetown Computer Science) are hiring a Georgetown '17 graduate to spearhead a new, interdisciplinary research project at the intersection of privacy, computer science, and law.

The project, which is supported by funding from the United States Census Bureau, will conduct original research at the intersection of privacy law and cutting-edge technological techniques for privacy protection.

The project is likely to produce at least one journal-length academic article discussing the interplay of differential privacy and Title 13. Other possible outputs include other legal scholarship regarding differential privacy, computer scientific research, policy white papers for use by government officials and policy advocates. 

The Fellow will also support Professor Ohm’s additional work, helping lead a spring 2018 class in Computer Programming and the Law and assisting Professor Ohm’s research into machine learning and the law. The remaining 25% of the Fellow’s time will support the Institute for Technology Law and Policy, under the supervision of the Institute’s Executive Director, Alexandra Givens. 

Applications should be made via Symplicity, starting April 17. The application window will remain open through May 2,2017 or until the position is filled, whichever is earlier.
