The Director of the new Max Planck Institute in Luxembourg has asked me to post this notice for scholars, which I am pleased to do (Download MPI_business_law):
The newly founded Max Planck Institute Luxemburg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law is seeking to hire senior and junior legal researchers on either a temporary (from one to five years) or permanent basis. The fields of research are:
- Listed corporations and corporate governance
- IPOs and takeovers
- Regulation of intermediaries and mutual funds
- Regulation of stock exchanges and other financial markets
- Banking regulation
Candidates should have a proven record of effective research at the international level or, for more junior positions, show a strong potential for research. Jurists and legal scholars are preferred, but economists will also be considered. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in one of the fields of research and/or an LL.M., will be fluent in English and will ideally know one or two different languages spoken in the European Union. The working language of the Institute is English. The Institute aims at being one of the leading research institutions in Europe.
The positions do not include any teaching obligations, and researchers will be free to focus exclusively on research. Significant funds will be provided for research expenses, including the organization of seminars and conferences and a travel budget. Compensation is competitive with leading universities and research institutions. The specific terms of each position will depend on candidates’ seniority and interests.
Applications should be sent via email, completed with an updated CV, selected publications, a motivation letter and an indication of the field of research you are interested in, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further information, please contact email@example.com.
The deadline for the applications is June 30, 2012, but late applications will be considered as well as long as there are still available positions.
