3.  The Research Group “The International Rule of Law – Rise or Decline?“ in­vites applications for three 12-24 months Fellowships in International Law or International Relations from 1 October 2015. The Group (Krieger, Nolte, Zim­mermann (IL), Jachtenfuchs, Liese, Zürn (IR)) examines the role of interna­tional law in a changing global order. Develop­ments in recent years give rise to the ques­tion whether the move towards an international rule of law, which seems to continue in some areas, has lost momentum in others. The Re­search Group addresses these questions from a legal and a political science perspective. The working language of the group is English. Fellows will work at Humboldt University Berlin. A monthly sti­pend of EUR 2500,00 plus one round­trip is attached to the position from which all costs will have to be cove­red. The Fellowships are designed for applicants worldwide with a doctorate in international law or in international relations. The proposed projects should re­late to the Group’s area of research. Applicants must have completed their PhD by 31 August 2015 and should not have pur­sued more than 3 years of postdoctoral research. Candidates from outside Europe are particularly en­cou­raged to apply. Applicants should submit, apart from their CV and a list of pub­lications, a description of current research and of a project to be pursued du­ring the first year of the Fellowship (no more than 1000 words), a summary of the candidate’s doctoral thesis, and two letters of recommendation. The dead­line for application is 31 March 2015. Please send your application in PDF format to intlaw {at}
