Our ideal candidate has:

  • excellent command of English, including the ability to write well in English for different audiences;
  • good command of Dutch;
  • strong affinity with academic research (not necessarily in law);
  • advanced skills in standard computer programmes;

About the Faculty 

Both the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG) and the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL) have a strong track-record of excellent research and sustain a dynamic research culture through a series of events and intiatives.  Both centres unite a diverse group of (international) researchers who are encouraged to pursue excellence, seek recognition in the scholarly discourse, both internationally and nationally, attract external research funding, and publish in the leading peer reviewed journals.

ACELG and ACIL are research priority areas within the Amsterdam Law School and cooperate within programmes such as SGEL or each with outside institutions.

ACELG and ACIL are part of the Department of Public International and European Law.
