Vacancy PhD candidate in European Private Law
For 38 hours per week. Closing date: 15 January 2016.
The PhD candidate will be based within the Centre for the Study of European Contract Law (CSECL) and contribute to the overarching project ' The Architecture of Post-National Rulemaking: Public International Law, European Public Law, and European Private Law'.
The project aims to provide new reflections and insights into the discussion on the legitimacy of post-national rulemaking starting from three distinct but in this project uniquely combined legal perspectives. The main objective is to relate perspectives from public international law, European public law and European private law on post-national rulemaking and to examine through a new lens any legitimacy concerns that may arise from the new arrangements. At the core of the project lies a close multi-disciplinary dialogue between senior and junior researchers that crosses the normal boundaries of the three sub-disciplines of law.
