Postdoctoral Position in Legal Research – Property Law

University of Aarhus - Department of Law

A position as a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Law, Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University, is open for appointment as soon as possible. It is available for a period of 14 months.

The research project
The postdoctoral position is established as part of the on-going research project "The impact of a Europeanisation of property law" carried out at the Research Group on Ownership and Property, the Department of Law, Aarhus BSS.

Job description
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the overall objectives of the project by being involved in dogmatic research as well as the other phases of the research process, including writing of articles and the ongoing development of the project. The focus is on the international impact, particularly in terms of publications.

The postdoctoral researcher will be tasked to study the model rules in the Draft Common Frame of Reference (DCFR) Book VIII "Acquisition and loss of ownership of goods" and the legal status that would result from an implementation of the rules, including a comparative study of the model rules in DCFR Book VIII and the property law rules of Germany.

The postdoctoral researcher will provide support in organising workshops and an international conference, including the coordination and assessment of abstracts and discussion with journals and/or publishers regarding possible publication of conference papers. The postdoctoral researcher may undertake administrative tasks, as necessary.

The position is research-oriented, but also involves teaching assignments in English. This means that the successful candidate is expected to provide a dedicated contribution to the department’s research and teaching environment.

Your physical attendance at the department is required, and we expect active participation in the activities of the department.

Your qualifications
The candidate must hold a PhD in law and must have experience within the area of property law. Experience with the property law rules of Germany is especially welcome.
