The Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance seeks to fill a position for a postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Shared Rule-making and Enforcement in Europe. The successful candidate will work for the Europa Institute/Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe (RENFORCE Centre Utrecht) within the field of the research programme of the Law School "Shared Regulation and Enforcement in Europe" which has been in operation since February 2013. This new research programme combines some 30 Researchers from EU law, Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Private Law, Economic and Social Law and Criminology. It builds on the Utrecht Law School Europa Institute's renowned and longstanding reputation in the field of the interaction between European and national legal orders. The research programme seeks to renew and broaden the scope of the research activities under the new heading: Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe. The set-up of the research programme is essentially legal in nature, but seeks input and interplay with other academic disciplines as well. To that end, the research programme includes reflection on methodology and the development of specific research methods to be applied in the research to be conducted.
The research programme consists of the following building blocks:

  • differentiated legislation in the EU;
  • EU values in external trade;
  • social equality in the EU;
  • verticalization of enforcement;
  • migration, asylum and citizenship;
  • digitalization and technological innovation;
  • theoretical foundations of regulation and enforcement.


We expect the candidate to:

  • conduct postdoctoral research on major aspects of the research programme (in at least two of the building blocks);
  • contribute to the overall coordination and direction of the research programme;
  • be active in developing the external network of professionals and academics;
  • be responsible for external and internal communication on activities, projects and research, including the contentmanagement of the website;
  • report to faculty and university authorities on progress, output and activities;
  • participate in the organization of research activities and events, such as conferences, workshops and joint publications;
  • regularly present intermediate research results at (inter)national workshops and conferences, and publish them in proceedings and leading journals.
  • a completed legal dissertation in EU law or, alternatively, in another area of law (e.g. criminal law, civil law, constitutional law or administrative law), provided that the research includes a clear EU law dimension;
  • a strong affinity with the core theme of the project and an interest in crossing the disciplinary borders of legal doctrine;
  • a creative thinker and prolific writer;
  • team player with good communication skills;
  • excellent command of English; command of Dutch is an asset;
  • knowledge of different research methodologies (e.g. comparative, empirical) is an asset as well.


We offer a temporary position (1.0 FTE) for a period of two years. The gross salary - depending on previous qualifications and experience - ranges between €3,746 and €5,127 (scale 11 according to the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities) per month for a full-time employment. Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and a year-end bonus of 8.3% per year. In addition, Utrecht University offers excellent secondary conditions, including an attractive retirement scheme, (partly paid) parental leave and flexible employment conditions (multiple choice model).
