Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Information Society Project (ISP)/Tobin Center Resident Fellowship is designed for recent graduates of Ph.D. programs in economics interested in an academic career and whose research is related to the economics of the digital public sphere. We specifically encourage applicants interested in working on projects related to content moderation, privacy, antitrust, and algorithmic governance.

Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. or equivalent degree prior to the beginning of the fellowship. Resident Fellows are expected to write at least two academic works per year, to attend all ISP/Tobin Center events, be present in the ISP/Tobin Center facilities three full days per week, and to contribute to ISP/Tobin Center programming. ISP Resident fellows are strongly urged to reside in the New Haven area.

The Resident Fellowships normally begin on July 1 and last for one year; fellows in residence may apply for a second year of support. Fellows receive a salary of USD 50,629 per year plus Yale benefits, a travel stipend, and office space.

The ISP and Tobin Center also offer self-funded Resident Fellowships for individuals with their own sources of funding—for example, winners of Fulbright or other fellowship awards. The application requirements are identical. Please indicate the sources of funding in your application.

Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.
