The University of Regensburg

The University of Regensburg's Chair of British Studies is offering the possibility to one (1) EUI researcher to teach a class in their MA European Studies programmes (completely taught in English) for theWinter term 2021 (block format in February/March 2022 is certainly possible; the class does not have to be taught on a weekly basis during term time which term starts mid-October).

Topic + Compensation + Date/Duration: Please refer to this document (PDF) for all the details.

Application: Interested researchers should send

  • a cover letter (which should include possible dates for the block seminar)
  • CV

The University of Regensburg

is looking for a lecturer for its Winter term 2021-2022.

The University is looking for a qualified person to teach a course in “Economics” for their first-semester students. The exact topic can be discussed but the course should introduce their students to European aspects of economics.

Normally, the course is taught during the winter term, which lasts for 15 weeks, with one 90-minute session per week. A candidate from the EUI would, however, be able to teach this course only in a block format (either during one whole week outside term times, possibly in later February or early March 2022) or during two consecutive “weekends” (Fri-Sun) during term time (mid-October 2021 – early February 2022).The teaching format would be a lecture (but with some time for questions / discussions). The number of students attending would be around 40. The course finishes with a written exam which is devised and marked by the lecturer.

There is no standard exam for this course.It is very important to keep in mind that great majority of the students of the Master in European Studies do not have a background in economics before coming to Regensburg. Lecturers for the degree have to take this into account and adapt their teaching accordingly. In the case of economics, it is particularly important that most of the students have no experience with quantitative methods and cannot be expected to “learn” them during this course.

The University of Regensburg pays 61 Euro per 90-minute teaching session. The course comprises 15 such sessions. So the total remuneration for the course would be 915 Euro. Travel costs to and from Regensburg will also be paid, but no accommodation costs. Depending on the teaching format, it can be expected that the lecturer will have to be in residence in Regensburg for about 7-10 days.

Interested researchers should send an email including

  • their CV,
  • a seminar proposal of 1 page,
  • the approval email of their supervisor

to Thanasis.Mourikis@eui.eu by 28 June 2021.
