Job: Fellowship positions in the LOEWE Research Focus “Extrajudicial and Judicial Conflict Resolution”

The LOEWE Research Focus is an interdisciplinary group research project, financed by the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, the Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History and the University of Applied Sciences Frankfurt am Main. It is supported by the State of Hessen’s Offensive for the Development of Scientific and Economic Excellence (“Hessische Landes-Offensive zur Entwicklung Wissenschaftlich-ökonomischer Exzellenz” – LOEWE). Its central concern is interdisciplinary and international analysis of conflicts, conflict activities and conflict resolution from a comparative, intercultural and diachronic perspective. The ultimate aim is to develop models, types and modes of conflict and conflict resolution, in order to create the foundation for the formation of historically and empirically based theories in conflict research.

Requirements and role:
The applicant will have completed post-doctoral studies in Law, History, Chinese Studies or a related discipline or hold a comparable qualification, or have many years of relevant professional experience making him/her verifiably qualified in the field of extrajudicial or judicial dispute resolution.

Applicants for fellowships lasting over three months are expected to offer their own course (2 hours a week during the semester, seminar/lecture). There is a residency obligation.
