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. You will immediately get own responsibilities and work with a group of colleagues of diverse backgrounds. The deployment in various private law courses provides you a broad basis in private law and gives you the opportunity to collaborate with a group of colleagues with different backgrounds and who are very approachable.

The range of possibilities offers you the opportunity to be meaningful for the education of students, for legal research, and for the Faculty.

You will need to possess the energy and ideas to meet what is a highly stimulating and rewarding challenge, sustained by experienced and supportive colleagues as well as motivated students. Teaching activities are expected in all periods (Sep-Oct, Nov-Dec, Feb-Mar, Apr-May).
