Apply to be a 2020-21 NGTC Faculty Fellow

Applications are now being solicited for the 2020-21 cohort of Faculty Fellows in the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center (NGTC). Applications accepted online (link below)

The center’s purpose is the interdisciplinary study of the changing relationship between law, technology, and society. It is hosted in the College of Law and involves collaborations with the Colleges of Business, Engineering, and Journalism and Mass Communications.

Ideal candidates for NGTC Fellowship are academics with an interdisciplinary inclination and who are interested in the challenges of changing technology. The goal of the Fellows program is to develop a cohort of academics who are able to understand these challenges in interdisciplinary terms: engineers who can talk supply chain management and the role of public engagement in federal regulation; journalists who can speak fluently with entrepreneurs and critically interrogate lawyers advocating for preferred policies; entrepreneurs who can ground technologists in the reality of what can be and push lawyers past their focus on what can’t be; and other permutations involving the law, humanities, sciences, and other fields.

During the 2020‐21 academic year, NGTC Faculty Fellows will be expected to participate regularly in the recording and production the virtual‐format events during the 2020‐21 academic year. It is expected this will take 2‐6 hours per month. In exchange for consistent engagement with the Center’s events during the 2020‐21 academic year, NGTC Faculty Fellows will generally receive a $4,000 stipend.
