The Department of European and International Law at Tilburg Law School is looking for teaching assistants (TAs) for the spring term 2019 (January to June).

 The following Bachelor and Master courses may be taught or co-taught: 

  • Introduction to Global Law II
    This is a first year Bachelor course that explores vertical relationships within the context of the EU (agenda-setting & lobbying, decision-making, implementation, enforcement, judicial review). The course is taught through the lens of tobacco regulation. Due to success of the Global Law Bachelor Program, the course must be taught twice (2 x 9 lectures). 
  • Law, Environment Technology
    An optional course in our Master in EU Law and Master Law & Technology. A total of 11 lectures, many of which concern issues of EU law (e.g. bio-tech patents, GMO regulation and Charter of Fundamental Rights). It is conceivable that the TA could teach (some of) these lectures. 
  • Crisis and EU Law
    A compulsory course in our Master in EU Law. This course consists of a total of 11 lectures that focus on the institutional and constitutional architecture of the EU. The  main strands of enquiry concern (a) powers and competences, (b) exercise of powers & instruments, (c) delegated powers & agencies.
    These general issues are contextualized by focusing on the EU’s engagement with concrete crises where the plasticity of institutional and constitutional arrangements have been tested to their fullest extent. This year, we have focused on Banking and Finances, Migration, Climate and Brexit. 
  • Harmonization
    This is a compulsory Bachelor course for students that are seeking entry at university level after having completed a substantial part of their higher education program. The course makes students familiar with theories of harmonization and helps them solve concrete cases. In two lectures, we explore rationales for harmonization (derived from international  trade law literature). We then focus on important policy fields that represent important harmonization techniques. Environment (minimum harmonization), education/diploma’s (mutual recognition), patents (optional harmonization) and energy. 
  • Introduction to EU Law
    This is a first year bachelor course. Since it is policy that large groups of first-year students must be taught by a professor this course cannot be taught independently by a TA but only in the format of co-teaching. 
  • European Union Law

This is a course for second year Global Law Bachelor students. The group consists of about 60 motivated international students from within and outside the EU. They have already been taught an introduction course to EU Law in the first year. There is some flexibility in what to teach and how to teach, in collaboration with a senior member of staff.

 

 Tasks: The TA will teach or co-teach the course he or she has been selected for and will be involved in minor administrative tasks.

 Remuneration: Depending on the course the TA has been selected for, the teaching period may be a maximum of 5 months or shorter. Remuneration will be at the rate of a ‘junior docent’, i.e. a monthly net salary of around € 1.457,52 (depending on the teaching experience this may be a little more or less).

 Eligibility: According to the EUI policy on teaching placements, candidates need to present written approval of their supervisor and must have completed the EUI teaching training by the time the teaching starts.

 Application: Interested researchers should send their CV, a motivation letter and the approval email of their supervisor to [email protected] by Thursday, 17 May.

Short course description:

ITALIAN RENAISSANCE CIVILISATION AND CULTURE                                  

1. DESCRIPTION

The aim of this course is to investigate major aspects of the Renaissance in Italy from about 1350 to 1600, with special attention to developments in the great centers of Renaissance civilization including Florence, Venice, and Rome. This is a large and exciting subject rich in historical documentation, some of which we will have the opportunity to look at and discuss.

Commencing with issues relating to the idea of the Renaissance and historical periodization, the course then moves on to consider aspects of the political, social and religious life of Renaissance Italy, before introducing major examples of the art, civic culture, and religious, social and political thought of Florence, Venice, and Rome. The course finishes by considering the related issues of when the Italian Renaissance ended and what was its significance in the wider history of European civilization. This is a thoroughly interdisciplinary course: we will not only be investigating the art, literature, intellectual culture, politics, and society of this period, but also the links between these areas. Because of the richness of the documentary evidence for this subject, special emphasis will be given to the study of primary sources in translation and visual evidence.

2. OBJECTIVES and OUTCOMES

By the end of this course students should be able to demonstrate

  • a broad understanding of Italian Renaissance civilization and culture
  • an awareness of the main historical components, movements, features, and personalities of the period
  • a capacity to explore the links between politics, religion, society, art, and literature in relation to this theme
  • the ability to comment analytically on short extracts from primary sources in translation and on visual sources from the Italian Renaissance
  • an awareness of the historiography which has shaped the study of this subject

It has 50 to 60 students. The course ‘Justice and Home Affairs’ is an elective course of the MA EU Studies programme and has around 18 students. The level of both classes should be a very basic level for non-law students. Course material is available. The content-related design of the course is up to the lecturer. With regard to the ‘Law and Economics’ course this means that a lecturer who does not feel comfortable with the economics part could focus on the law of the internal market only (although the economics part is very basic). Regarding the ‘Justice and Home Affairs’ class the lecturer may decide, for example, whether to focus more on EU criminal law rather than migration law, and vice versa.

The teaching language is English. 

Remuneration will be around 2.000 Euro net for each course. If accommodation is needed it is possible to rent Dr. Oster’s apartment.

Law researchers in their 3rd, 4th and 5th year may apply.

Please note that according to the EUI policy on teaching placements, candidates need to present written approval of their supervisor. 

Interested researchers should send a motivation letter (indicating what they could teach) and their CV to Dr. Jan Oster, email  [email protected] by 2 November 2015 and copy [email protected] in the message.
