Job description

Your activities will mainly consist of teaching at the bachelor and/or master level, contributing to the development of courses and supervising bachelor theses.

In addition to teaching, you can, among other things, supervise participants in Moot Courts, attend or organize seminars or conferences, or participate in current and future research projects.
