Research Assistants in Law, Political Science, Criminology or Philosophy (Master Students)

PluriCourts invites students who are interested in writing a Master thesis within one of PluriCourts’ research areas, and who have a special interest in international courts, to apply for 1-2 positions as Research Assistant (50%) with a starting date in summer/autumn 2019.

The assistants share a joint office and have contracts for 50% positions as research assistants in pay grade 35. The workload is 20 hours a week in a flexible work schedule. The duration of the contract is up to two years.

Research assistants help with seminar and conference planning, as well as general research assistance to the editors of our publication projects.

We will hire highly motivated students with good academic results and good communication skills in English. We also ask that you outline a brief project idea related to your thesis, which describes how your project will contribute to our research plan.
