About Melbourne Law School
Melbourne Law School (MLS) at the University of Melbourne, Australia’s leading law school, invites applications for a Research Fellow to join the Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness.
About the role:
The Research Fellow 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.
The Peter McMullin Centre on Statelessness seeks an experienced researcher 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 Fellow will also have capacity to develop and deliver training materials to a wide-ranging audience beyond the academic community.
