PhD Positions in Private International Law in Luxembourg

The Faculty of Law of the University of Luxembourg will be seeking to recruit several PhD candidates in Private International Law.

Candidates should be PhD students who will be expected to work on their doctorate, to teach a few hours per week (one to three) and to contribute to research projects in private international law, mostly under my supervision. They are 3-year contracts, which can be extended for one year.

Ideally, candidates would hold a Master’s degree in private international law or in international dispute resolution (litigation or arbitration). Their language skills should be sufficient to work in a multilingual environment. Skills in another social science (economics, political science, etc…) would be an advantage.

Applications should include:

  • A motivation letter.
  • A detailed curriculum vitae with list of publications and copies thereof, if applicable.
  • A transcript of concluded university studies.
  • The name, current position and relationship to the applicant, of one referee.

They should be sent to me by email (gilles.cuniberti@uni.lu). I am also available to answer any questions at the same address.

Deadline for applications: September 1st, 2013.
