The Amsterdam Law School at the University of Amsterdam welcomes applications for postdoctoral researchers on sustainable global economic law (SGEL).

Besides the research projects, the candidate will also actively contribute to the organization of international events and joint research projects, working within an interdisciplinary team. The research on SGEL forms part of a larger national collaboration under the topic “Transformative Effects of Globalization within Law” (TEGL), a collaboration between four Dutch law faculties: Tilburg University, Maastricht University, the Open University, and the University of Amsterdam that examines how law can foster just sustainability in global contexts.

Teamwork in multiple academic groups and prior project management expertise are advantages. Applications from candidates from underrepresented backgrounds are especially welcome.
