The Geschwister Scholl Institute of Political Science at the LMU Munich invites applications for a
Doctoral Position in Political Science (f/m/d)
(TV-L E 13, 65%, 4 years)
The successful applicant will start the position on 1 October 2019 (or earlier) as part of the Emmy Noether Research Group “EUPLEX – Coping with Policy Complexity in the European Union”, headed by Dr. Steffen Hurka. The project, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), has officially started on 1 April 2019 and will run for six years, given a successful mid-term evaluation in April 2022. Pursuing a mixed-methods approach, EUPLEX addresses the following central research questions: (1) How can we capture the complexity of policy content in the European Union conceptually, measure it empirically and thereby make it comparable systematically? (2) Which factors account for varying degrees of policy complexity and which comparable relevance can we ascribe to functional, political and institutional determinants? (3) How is policy complexity processed by the EU’s political institutions and how does it affect policy implementation in the member states?
LMU Munich is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. Applicants with disabilities who possess essentially equal qualifications will be given preference.
