Research Assistants in Trier


The Faculty of Law of the University of Trier (Professor Dr. Jan von Hein) is seeking to recruit two Assistants (PhD students) in Private International Law, Comparative Law or Civil Law/Corporate Law. The candidates should be PhD students who will be expected to work on their doctorate, to teach a few hours per week and to contribute to research projects, mainly in private international law and comparative law. The contracts are 2-year fixed-term, renewable once.

Trier is not only Germany’s oldest city, a world cultural heritage and a favourite tourist destination, but also a hot spot for research in private international law, as it is the seat of the Academy of European Law (see our recent post) and very close to Luxembourg, where the European Court of Justice is situated and the newly founded Max-Planck-Institute for International Procedural Law will start its work in 2010.
