Schindler Junior Scholars

The Institute for International and Comparative Constitutional Law has launched a program for the promotion of excellent doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in the fields of international, European and comparative constitutional law. The core of the program consists of two workshops per semester that are devoted to the discussion of the Junior Scholars’ research projects as well as academic publications. The workshops will be directed by the respective Dietrich Schindler Lecturer and a member of the Institute. The program lasts one year and is meant to foster the academic exchange with internationally renowned experts in the field.

Please send your application for the academic year 2024/25 by 31 July 2024 to: (including a pdf-file with a motivation letter, a CV and university transcripts).
