We are looking for five PhD researchers who will perform excellent research in Law or Criminology in connection with one of the research themes pursued by Erasmus School of Law. This is an open application round, in which candidates are selected on the basis of their professional qualification, the letter of motivation, the quality of their own research proposal, and the extent to which this fits with the research profile of ESL. EGSL has created a two-phased structure for the four-year doctoral programme: a probationary period (14 months) followed by a 34-month PhD programme. The probationary period consists of a full educational programme of 60 ects (including 20 ects for individual research). In the remaining 34-month period PhD researchers, focus entirely on research and the completion of their thesis. In both phases structured guidance is provided by the thesis supervisor and a doctorate committee composed of three senior researchers and the EGSL Director or EGSL Dean of the PhD Programme.
Besides the five PhD positions, the Erasmus Initiative Inclusive Prosperity is looking for two PhD candidates with a keen interest in and knowledge of subjects that may help foster inclusive prosperity of society.

PhD candidates under the supervision of the Initiative are expected to engage in its research community and will be co-supervised by a professor from one of the two partner schools.
