American Bar Foundation Research Professor


Pending budgetary approval, the American Bar Foundation (ABF) invites applications to join its Residential Faculty as a Research Professor, beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year.


We seek an early- or mid-career economist with a PhD and/or JD and a demonstrated capacity for innovative research on sociolegal issues. The ABF is strongly committed to diversity in hiring.


The ABF is an independent, scholarly research institute committed to social science research on law, legal institutions, and legal processes. Its faculty, which are a mix of full-time appointments and joint appointments with universities in the Chicago-area, are leading scholars in the fields of law, sociology, psychology, political science, economics, history, and anthropology.


Research Professors work independently and are responsible for identifying appropriate topics for research, seeking external funding when possible, conducting research, and authoring books and articles to be published in scholarly journals. The position is an ongoing one, subject to periodic performance reviews. The ABF welcomes applicants seeking a full-time appointment at the ABF or those interested in a joint appointment with another Chicago-area institution.


The ABF offers competitive salary and benefits along with research support. If jointly appointed with law or social science faculties of Chicago-area institutions, the ABF works closely with these institutions to coordinate on matters such as salary, benefits, and other work arrangements (including potential course relief).


We will begin reviewing applications on December 6, 2021. We ask that applicants submit a cover letter, which should include a brief statement about the candidate’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in their scholarship and professional life; a curriculum vitae; a writing sample; a brief (no more than two page) description of current research and plans for future research; and a list of three references.


Application letters should be addressed to Ajay K. Mehrotra, Executive Director & Research Professor, and submitted through the following url: https://apply.interfolio.com/98362. Queries about the application process can be directed to Executive Assistant Francine Blazowski at (312) 988-6542.


The ABF is firmly committed to providing equal employment opportunities. All decisions regarding the terms, privileges, and/or conditions of employment, including but not limited to hiring, classification, grading, recruitment, discharge, discipline, compensation, selection for training or apprenticeship, promotion, renewal of employment, tenure or terms, and benefits, will be made without unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship, ancestry, age, order of protection status, marital status, disability, military status, unfavorable discharge from the military, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender, gender identity, housing status, parental status, source of income, certain arrest or criminal history records, genetic information, protected activity (such as opposition to or reporting of prohibited discrimination or harassment), or any other status or classification protected by applicable federal, state, and/or local laws.
