The positions are part of an international team which supports the Research Network on EU Administrative Law working group on information management.
ReNEUAL addresses the potential and the substantial need for simplification of EU administrative law, as the body of rules and principles governing the implementation of EU policies by EU institutions and Member States. Members of ReNEUAL contribute to establishing a series of draft "statements and restatements" which shall serve as best-practice guidelines of a general European administrative procedure law. The ReNEUAL working group on information management will concentrate on issues such as the use and effect of public information infrastructures to gather, assess and share information for decision-making in EU procedures for administrative rulemaking, single-case decision making and negotiating contracts. Also, it will look at common rules and principles for the quality of information necessary for decision-making as well as at data protection rules.
In addition to the supportive tasks for ReNEUAL the position offers room for one´s own scholarly development for instance by preparing own publications in the field of European or comparative information law or by drafting a doctoral thesis – either for your home university or in order to receive a doctoral degree from Freiburg. In the latter case it is possible to write the doctoral thesis either in German or English. You may also note that Freiburg offers an international master´s program on German law.
