Are you looking to pursue a PhD research project in International public law? Does your proposed research fit well within ACIL's scope of International Law? Find out more about the options for PhD research at the Amsterdam Center for International Law (ACIL).

Employment – we look for you

Provided there is funding, e.g. within an externally funded research project, ACIL has the possibility to employ PhD researchers for a period of 3 to 4 years. PhD researchers enjoy all the benefits of an employment with the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Such PhD positions are advertised on the University of Amsterdam’s vacancy site and, if applicable, on the ACIL homepage.

What do I need to do?

Keep an eye on the UvA vacancy site and/or the ACIL home page.

External PhD researcher – you look for us

ACIL is open for applications by candidates who want to pursue their research as a self-funded external PhD candidate as long as the proposed research project falls squarely within ACIL's research programme. Candidates are strongly advised to identify potential supervisors from the list of ACIL full professors before submitting their application. The closer the match between a research proposal, ACIL's research programme and the specialisation of an ACIL professor, the higher the chance for a proposal to be accepted.

Please note that ACIL's PhD research is part of the Amsterdam Law School's overall research programme. Applications will initially be handled by central Amsterdam Law School administration.
