The Department of Law of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance of the University of Luxembourg is looking for a PhD candidate to conduct research in cyber policy.

Your Role...

The doctoral researcher will be working under the supervision of Professor Niovi Vavoula, Chair in Cyber Policy. The doctoral researcher's main task will be to prepare a doctoral thesis in the field of cyber policy. The thesis work will be undertaken at the University of Luxembourg but can also be jointly-supervised with another university. The suggested theme of the PhD is cyber policy, broadly encompassing topics relating to cybersecurity, cyber defence and cyber sovereignty. The candidate is, however, welcome to suggest any other topic within the overarching project theme. The doctoral candidate will contribute to the teaching of classes ranging from one to three hours per week, of small group teachings and tutorials.

The doctoral researcher will benefit from being part of large research group comprising several PhDs and Postdoctoral Researchers working on related topics of cyber policy or cyber crime. Being part of the project will allow the doctoral researcher to enhance his/her knowledge-base and experience; working on the various aspects of the project will not only strengthen his/her academic profile, but also give him/her access to (and the chance to critically engage with) some of the most renowned experts in the field.

Qualifications...

We are looking for a candidate with demonstrated interest in cyber policy, including cyber crime, cybersecurity, cyber defence and cyber sovereignty. In particular, the following requirements apply:

  • A Master's Degree in Law, particularly on IT/Technology law, Data Protection law or the regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Have the linguistic skills to evolve in a multilingual environment: fluency in English, good understanding of the second language, French in particular, and possibly a third language, German in particular, will be considered an advantage
  • Excellent communication and writing skills
