Teaching and Research Staff Member – EU Law and/or EU Competition Law (1.0 FTE)

As a Teaching and Research staff member you will be involved in the core tasks of the Department of European Law related to teaching and research. This is a broad and challenging position that offers junior legal professionals an excellent opportunity to gain experience – under expert supervision – in many aspects of European law, in a scholarly and largely English-speaking environment.

The appointment is temporary, but will enable the staff member to develop a proposal for PhD research at the Department and potentially transition into the role of PhD candidate. At least one of the positions is reserved for a candidate who is interested in pursuing research in the field of EU competition law. Candidates with a specific interest in the internal market, external relations, and justice and home affairs are also invited to apply.

Candidates are asked to indicate in their cover letter the specific area of EU law in which they are interested as well as possible ideas for PhD research in that field.

Your responsibilities in this position will include:

  • Providing organisational and substantive support to the Department’s research activities;
  • Teaching tutorial groups and correcting examinations and papers;
  • Providing support related to teaching, and the development and coordination of teaching activities;.
  • Developing your own research agenda, under the guidance of a senior member of the Department.

Knowledge of the Dutch language is not a requirement, but will be considered an important asset given that the majority of the department’s bachelor courses are taught in Dutch.

Your profile

The Department is looking for a Teaching and Research staff member with an interest in academia who ideally recently graduated with a degree in European Law or a related master’s degree in law. Affinity with the tasks listed above, and the ability to work in a team are requirements.
