The Assistant Professor will be involved in teaching and research activities, the Lecturer will be focusing on teaching. For the appointment as an Assistant Professor a finished PhD is required. This requirement does not apply for the appointment as Lecturer. However, experience in research is seen as an advantage.

The prospective Assistant Professor / Lecturer will teach and coordinate various courses in bachelor and master programmes. The courses concern introductory courses in law, such as Law and Legal Skills: the Dutch Example. In this course, students are introduced in the major areas of law and legal skills. If language skills allow, the Assistant Professor / Lecturer will also be involved in introductory courses in Dutch, such as Algemene Rechtswetenschap 1 and Algemene Rechtswetenschap 2. If language skills allow, the Assistant Professor / Lecturer will also be involved in teaching and coordinating courses in Dutch concerning methods and methodology in legal research. These courses concern doctrinal legal research, empirical legal research and master thesis writing.

The Assistant Professor will conduct research within the department of Legal Methods. Research expertise and interests preferably lie in one or more of the following three research areas which play a central role in the research at the department: (1) public order and safety, (2) housing rights and law and (3) methods and methodology in legal research. The Assistant Professor may participate in the research of the ERC project EVICT on the right to housing, evictions and data science. This project is coordinated by professor Michel Vols within the department (see http://www.eviction.eu).

The Assistant Professor is expected to successfully undertake research: publish (peer-reviewed) journal articles and books (chapters), organise and participate in conferences, and write grant proposals to acquire research funding. The Assistant Professor is also expected to fulfil a coordinating and/or pioneering role in the research group. This may include (co-)supervising PhD and (research) master’s students.
