Vacancy: Two paid PhD positions in Food Law (emphasis on EU economic law and/or international trade law)

Do you want to make a change in the way we eat, produce and sell our food? If you are as excited as we are to work on the food transformation to meet the greatest challenges of humankind such as digitization, climate change and global hunger you should come and join us! 

You will join us as PhD researcher and member of staff of the Campus team at the Faculty of Life Sciences: Food, Nutrition and Health at the Campus Kulmbach of the University of Bayreuth. 

The Chair of Food Law seeks to fill two open positions at your earliest convenience but by end of August the latest. Exceptionally, a later starting date may be arranged. 

The positions offer the opportunity for scientific qualification as part of a Ph.D. graduation, and is initially limited to three years. It is possible to extend the contract by one year. Each salary will be calculated according to 50% of E13 TV-L. Each exact salary depends on experience and may range from 25.000 to max. Euro 36.000 per annum. 

We are looking for exceptional graduates in law/legal studies with an emphasis on EU economic law and/or international trade law willing to specialise on food-related topics, or graduates in a food science discipline with a proven emphasis on food law. The candidate should display a proven potential to conduct studies at PhD level, should be able to work independently and possess a high degree of development potential. Applicants should represent the law and legal studies in both research and teaching and support the interdisciplinary life science orientation of the faculty by interacting with other disciplines. 

Excellent expertise in EU economic law and international trade law and/or food law is a requirement, as is active involvement in setting up the Chair of Food Law and the new Faculty of Life Sciences: Food, Nutrition & Health. Besides research and teaching, part of the appointment also concerns participation in acquisition and managing (third-party funded) projects, which may provide opportunities to increase the PhD salary. Willingness to conduct interdisciplinary legal studies as well as knowledge of quantitative and/or qualitative research methods is an asset. We are looking for recruiting two scientific employees (PhD candidates) whose research orientation can help to link the individual fields of the faculty and participate in inter- and transdisciplinary research projects. Further university links are possible with the department of law and researchers of other subject areas from the University of Bayreuth. 

The ability to teach and write in English is a prerequisite for employment, as substantial parts of the new faculty’s teaching and research programme will be offered in English; German language is an asset, but not required. The University of Bayreuth particularly encourages applications from women who are under-represented in the University at this level/ in this discipline. Additionally, handicapped applicants will be preferred if equally qualified. 

Please send inquiries to Prof. Dr. Kai Purnhagen, LL.M at kai.purnhagen@uni-bayreuth.de. Please send your written application with the usual documents (cover letter, CV and certificates) by e-mail to: Silke.Kaempfer-Hauck@uni-bayreuth.de.
