You are an intellectually curious researcher with an inter-disciplinary research profile and an international academic network. Your publications show expertise in the field of EU climate change law and more broadly EU economic law and governance. Your research will add to and complement existing work on climate change and the Anthropocene in the Amsterdam School for Regional, Transnational and European Studies (ARTES), adding a legal perspective to the work of historians, geographers, and political economists. You will develop and provide modules on climate change and economic law and governance at the BA and MA levels. You show flexibility in teaching topics beyond your own research focus, a willingness to work in interdisciplinary teams of teachers, and the ability to offer inspiring lectures and tutorials in the BA, MA and Law minor programmes to an international community of students. You are committed to fostering an inclusive classroom.
