2017 Call for Applications for: 2 Doctoral Fellowships

The doctoral programme “Unity and Diversity in the European Legal Area“ (EPEDER) at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is currently accepting applications for fellowships starting in October 2017.

The doctoral programme investigates the conditions, boundaries and implications of interdependencies between national legal systems resulting from the progressing europeanisation of law. It therefore addresses exceptional candidates committed to research within the framework of European, comparative and international perspectives of law, preferably aimed at achieving a balance between convergence on the European level and pluralism on the national level or investigating the European Union model in a global context. Members are held to provide regular updates on their progress and thusly benefit from the feedback of their colleagues as well as renowned university professors. The programme further offers academic guidance, familiarises with cutting-edge methods and research in European and Transnational law and conveys soft skills (in cooperation with the private sector sponsors of the European Law School (ELS)). Projects and initiatives of members are encouraged, e.g. the organisation of a (national or international) conference. Last but not least, the programme draws on the success of the network of the ELS at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, actively supporting research stays abroad, encouraging joint research projects and arranging contacts to renowned researchers at the partner-universities as well as associated universities such as the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence or the Sciences Po in Paris. The main language of the programme is German.
