2 Research Fellows Vacancies at Goethe University Frankfurt

The Institute of Labour Law and Civil Law at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main in Germany chaired by Professor Dr. Bernd Waas is looking for two exceptional Research Fellows (E13 TV-G-U, part time 80%) to contribute to the research work of the European Labour Law Network (ELLN) at the earliest possible start date until 31.12.2018.

The successful candidate will contribute to the work of the research project ‘ Restatement of Labour law in Europe’. The project aims to provide a comprehensive comparative review of national laws on “dismissal protection”. Labour law experts from all EU Member States as well as from EU candidate countries and EEA countries are participating in the project. The European project partners are the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), the Confederation of German Employers’ Associations (BDA), the European Association of Labour Court Judges (EALCJ), the European Employment Lawyers Association (EELA) as well as the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EUROFOUND). The project is financed by the European Commission.

The successful candidates will support the project leader, Professor Dr. Bernd Waas. They will contribute to the preparation of country reports in collaboration with the experts of the national network as well as with the partner organisations, review the reports and edit them for publication.

In addition to a successful completion of the First Law Examination or an equivalent degree, this challenging task requires a special interest in labour law, which should also be reflected in previous training courses. Expertise in comparative and European labour law is a plus. Excellent knowledge of English and good communication skills are required. Furthermore, applicants must have a sound knowledge of IT applications. Additional requirements include conceptual skills, flexibility and the ability to work independently as well as within a team; reliability and workplace etiquette rounds out your profile.

We offer you an interesting area of responsibility in an international environment with compensation commensurate with duties based on the collective agreement of the Goethe University.

Applications (in English or German) including all standard accompanying documents should be sent by email to Prof. Dr. Bernd Waas, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a. M., Institut für Zivil- und Wirtschaftsrecht, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt (sekretariat-waas@jura.uni-frankfurt.de). The deadline for receipt of applications is 31 January 2017.
