Join the team: PhD Vacancy!



The ERC Curiae Virides Research Project is looking for a PhD-student with a doctoral grant to conduct statistical and network analysis to assess how ecological conflicts emerging in the framework of Global Value Chain (GVC) activities reach courts, and which is the institutional capacity of courts to understand complex environmental and economic problems at stake.


Apply until 20/8/2022 via the website of the VUB. Candidates will be interviewed on a rolling basis.


More concretely,


- You will support the team of the CURIAE VIRIDES project by conducting statistical and network analysis to assess how ecological conflicts emerging in the framework of Global Value Chain (GVC) activities reach courts, and which is the institutional capacity of courts to understand complex environmental and economic problems at stake.

- You will define the scope of your PhD dissertation connected with the topics addressed in the project with the supervision of the Principal Investigator.

- The research project is positioned at the intersections of sustainable development law, the analysis of (ecological) litigation, and state/corporate accountability for respecting and protecting human rights and the environment.

- You will be expected to devote most of your time to research; additional tasks will include occasional teaching activities, event organization and contributions to the overall development of the project.

- You will prepare papers, attend conferences and produce research publications as you carry out the PhD, individually or in collaboration with other team members.
