Work On! Visiting Fellowship in Amsterdam

The Amsterdam Center of International Law is now inviting applications for Visiting Fellows within the Research Project on Shared Responsibility in International Law.
Known as SHARES, this research project is funded by a European Research Council Advanced Grant. The project is led by André Nollkaemper, Professor of Public International Law and Vice-Dean for Research at the Faculty of Law of the University of Amsterdam.
The SHARES project is to examine the allocation of international responsibilities among multiple states and other actors. It seeks to uncover the nature and extent of the problem of sharing responsibility in an increasingly interdependent and heterogeneous international legal order. The SHARES will therefore offer new concepts, principles and perspectives for understanding how the international legal order may deal with shared responsibilities.
In order to further its research, the Research Project SHARES now invites applications for the SHARES Visiting Fellowships. Applications can be made by doctoral researchers, who are in at least the second year of their studies, post-doctoral researchers and senior researchers. Fellows will be provided work space and may apply for a monthly stipend, as explained here.
Applications are accepted on a continuing basis and should include the following documentation:
► research proposal of max 1,000 words describing research questions, expected results, and the projected contribution to the SHARES Project
► curriculum vitae, including list of publications
► envisaged period (in principle, 3-6 months; preference to academic-year stays) and names of two referees
► statement of funding, in case a request for a stipend is made
The documentation should be sent to shares-fdr@uva.nl. More details here.
