About Melbourne Law School:
Melbourne Law School (MLS) is Australia’s first all-graduate law faculty. Melbourne Law School was the first faculty in Australia to teach law, and awarded this country’s first law degrees. We have now committed ourselves to build on our more than 150 year history of excellence and innovation by shifting from undergraduate legal education to the global standard, graduate level Juris Doctor (JD) degree.

About the role:
The Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness seeks two experienced researchers to play an instrumental role in developing and carrying out an innovative program of legal and other research aimed at understanding the causes of statelessness and identifying appropriate responses to reduce and eradicate statelessness.

The Research Fellows will be involved in all aspects of the work of the centre which has as its focus the development of teaching, research and engagement projects with three major aims:

  • To properly understand the scope, scale and reasons for statelessness in order to develop targeted and effective responses to it;
  • To work towards reducing and, over time, eliminating statelessness; and
  • Until statelessness is eliminated, working to protect the human rights of stateless people within the countries in which they reside.

About you:
The Research Fellows will have high-level skills in research and analysis and project development and management, with particular interest and expertise in refugee law, human rights and statelessness. The Fellows will also have demonstrable capacity to develop and deliver training materials to a wide-ranging audience beyond the academic community.
