The Faculty of Law at the University of Zurich is seeking an
Assistant Professor in Legal History (duration of three years, not tenure track)
The assistant professorship is designed to further qualify the holder in the discipline of legal history. Upon completion of the position, a habilitation or equivalent achievement should be submitted. Requirements for the position of assistant professor include a doctorate with outstanding results and, if possible, an academic background in the history of Private law and/or contemporary legal history. In addition, the candidate’s current research project should have a strong focus on legal history. A focus on the early modern period and/or contemporary legal history is of advantage. Scholarly experience in a doctrinal legal discipline is also of advantage, but not a strict requirement. Applicants who do not speak German as a native language must be willing to familiarize themselves with the German language.
The University of Zurich aims to increase the percentage of women working in teaching and research and therefore specifically encourages qualified women to apply.
Application materials (cv, list of publications and presentations, teaching portfolio) must be sent by regular mail to the University of Zurich, Faculty of Law, Dean’s Office, Rämistrasse 74/2, CH-8001 Zurich by 9 March 2016.
