The Research Group explores the role of contestation and illegality in the field of the prohibition on the use of force in international law (www.shadesofillegality.org). The interdisciplinary research group seeks to employ a political scientist or international relations scholar at the postdoctoral level.
The senior research fellow will conduct postdoctoral research (individual publications and contribution to common research projects) connected to the research activities of the research group. The position will give room to pursue post-doctoral research that is broadly related to the topic of the research group.
The research group seeks to employ a post-doctoral international relations scholar or political scientist who will contribute to the group’s expertise. Applicants are required to hold a university degree and preferably a Ph.D. (although Ph.D. students in the final phase are also invited to apply). Candidates should possess a deep knowledge of international relations, demonstrate great interest in academic research, and be fully proficient in English (written and oral); further language skills are advantageous. Experience in conducting interviews, coding and qualitatively assessing them as well as experience in working with MAXQDA (or similar programs) as well as Microsoft Excell are an asset.
