The newly founded Institute for European Policy-Making at Bocconi University, Milan, invites applications for a post-doc position in EU Law.
Research Project: The Project aims at identifying the changes to the material Constitution of EU, deriving from the management of recent crisis (Immigration, pandemics, geopolitical challenges, included the war in Ukraine, the Euro crisis), with a focus on the EU Commission and European Council. The project is expected to put forward concrete reform proposals for European governance and candidates will be working under the direct supervision of prof. Eleanor Spaventa.
Job Description: The Postdoc researcher will look at both formal and informal tasks carried out by the Commission in the past 3 years (E.g. the new powers acquired with NGEU, formal and informal powers related to immigration, etc.); and will look at the evolution of the role of European Council. The research outcomes will be published both in academic journals and as IEP@BU policy proposals. Candidates must be willing to take an active role n the IEP, including supporting the organization of events. Candidates must have a Doctorate in EU law, or cognate disciplines, or being in the process of obtaining one.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate excellent academic potential and a keen interest in policy making. Experience in working for European and/or national institutions is an advantage. Candidates will have to submit a cover letter detailing their interest in the position and their background (maximum 500 words); a research proposal in the broad field of EU institutional/constitutional law, preferably with a focus on institutions or competences (max. 1000 words); and a CV containing all relevant information, including grades obtained in the degrees acquired so far. Candidates must identify two referees familiar with their prior work.
