One Position as Professor in International Law and Regional Law (100%)
The successful candidate is expected to start on 1 September 2022 in Paris. They must either be a tenured Professor in a French university or hold an equivalent foreign position with similar qualifications.
The Professor will join the Sorbonne Research Institute in International and European law (IREDIES), which already comprises 15 professors of Public or European International Law, 11 assistant professors, and three staff members. It is one of the most important research centres of international and European law in France and aims to strengthen its expertise on regional integration outside the European Union.
The successful candidate must be recognised for their work and publications in Public International Law, Foreign Law, and the Law of Regional Organisations and Regional Integration. They should have solid experience in doctoral supervision and collective research, with a capacity to develop individual and collective research projects in these areas of research. Significant experience in a foreign university would be an asset.
The Professor is expected to teach 128 hours per year, mainly within the Institute of Distance Learning (IED) of the Sorbonne Law School as well as in other departments of the Law School, at undergraduate and graduate levels (Department of International, European and Comparative Law). Teaching will focus on Public International Law, Foreign Public Law, and Regional Integration Law.
The Professor will also take on administrative and other responsibilities (e.g. directing a master’s degree). Experience in this field and a good capacity to adapt to a demanding institutional environment are required. Teaching experience and innovation both on-site and online would be ideal.
Perfect command of both French and English is essential. Professional mastery of a third language would be valuable.
