    A federal judge is one who serves in the courts of the United States as a whole, not a court of any particular state.

    A federal district judge is a federal judge who sits in a trial court (as opposed to a court that hears appeals).

    "Judgeship" is just the state of being a judge. So Justice Sotomayor was told to apply for a job as a federal trial court judge.
