Max Planck Institute Seeks Applications for Postdoctoral and Research Scholarships

Postdoctoral and Research Scholarships 2017 
The Max Planck Institute for European Legal History (MPIeR) will be awarding several scholarships for a research stay at the institute in 2017.

Postdoc Scholarships enable highly qualified researchers from abroad who already obtained a PhD to either develop a new research topic in a thematically relevant context or to pursue an already existing project. Established researchers from abroad who have received their PhD more than 10 years ago can apply for a Research Scholarship, which enables them to come to the institute as a guest in order to pursue their own research project at the MPIeR.

For 2017 the research subjects are:

Department I – Professor Stefan Vogenauer

Legal transfer in common law world
History of European Union Law
Fundamental issues concerning legal reception

Department II – Professor Thomas Duve

Legal history of Latin America in early modern and modern periods
Methods of legal history in a global perspective
Law and Diversity: legal historical perspectives
