We are looking for six PhD researchers who will perform excellent research in Law or Criminology in connection with one of the research themes pursued by Erasmus School of Law. This is an open application round, in which candidates are selected on the basis of their professional qualification, the letter of motivation, the quality of their own research proposal, and the extent to which this fits within the research profile of ESL. EGSL has created a two-phased structure for the four-year doctoral programme: a probationary period (14 months) followed by a 34-month PhD programme. The probationary period consists of a full educational programme of 60 ECTS (including 20 ECTS for individual research). In the remaining 34-month period PhD researchers focus on research and the completion of their thesis. In both phases structured guidance is provided by the thesis supervisors and a doctorate committee composed of three senior researchers and the EGSL Director or one of the EGSL PhD Coordinators.
You have a university degree in Law, Criminology or other discipline relevant for the research themes mentioned above. You can demonstrate relevant scientific research skills, proven, for example, by academic publications or by the quality of your master thesis. You have excellent oral and written skills in English. Additionally, a (associate) professor affiliated to ESL must be willing to act as your prospective supervisor. Please bear in mind that you have to consult a prospective supervisor at least one month before the submission deadline. To find a suitable professor for your research project you can check the Erasmus School of Law’s website: https://www.eur.nl/en/esl/research/researchers/professors
Current master students are welcome to apply. You can apply without having proof of obtaining your master’s degree, however, bear in mind that proof of a master degree is a formal requirement for employment, which will only be possible if the master degree has been obtained before 1 September 2019.
The position begins with a temporary employment contract for 14 months in which the candidate’s suitability is evaluated. If the candidate is suitable, then an additional contract of 34 months follows, leading to a total appointment of 4 years.
We offer an attractive position with good terms of employment in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO NU).
The monthly salary is € 2,325 gross for a full time position of 38 hours a week during the first year (CAO NU scale doctoral candidate), which will increase annually up to € 2,972 gross per month in the fourth year.
The attractive benefits package includes an end of year bonus of 8.3%, holiday allowance of 8%, extensive leave facilities for a healthy work/life balance, a good pension fund and an excellent collective insurance package. Employees are also entitled to use various facilities, such as sport facilities and library.
