Stanford Con Law Fellowship

After the jump, an announcement about an entry-level fellowship at the Stanford Constitutional Law Center. The recent fellow, James Phillips, guested here in June and started on the faculty at Chapman.
The Stanford Constitutional Law Center fellowship is intended for individuals who are seeking an academic career working on constitutional law. Affiliates of the Center have gone on to obtain desirable academic positions at numerous law schools including Georgetown, the University of Chicago, the University of Texas, George Washington, Penn State, UCLA, Notre Dame, Hastings, Penn State, Georgia, Richmond, and Chapman, among others.
The fellowship is a residential fellowship that provides an opportunity to conduct research in the dynamic environment of Stanford Law School. The fellowship is for one year with the possibility of extending to a second year. The fellowship is designed to allow participants to complete a significant body of independent scholarship. We expect fellows to dedicate most of their time to pursuing their proposed research projects, while dedicating a small amount of their time to attend Center activities, including our annual conference, our monthly speaker series, and paper workshops. Fellows may also occasionally be called on to help coordinate Center activities in cooperation with the Center’s executive director.
Fellows are encouraged to become part of a lively law-school-wide community of individuals with an interest in legal academia by attending weekly faculty lunch seminars and participating in activities with the other fellows at Stanford Law School. For the 2019-2020 fellowship, we will provide fellows with work space, a competitive salary, and a generous benefits package. Fellows will report to the executive director of the Constitutional Law Center.

Applicants should have a JD or doctoral level degree (PhD) in a relevant area. Successful applicants typically also have experience in a federal appellate clerkship, and a demonstrated aptitude for original research in constitutional law, typically in the form of past publications or student notes.

It is for 2021-2022.

It's too late for this, so it logically would appear 2021-22.

For what academic year is this fellowship? It is unclear from the post.
