PhD Fellowships at RGSL in Cooperation With the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Latvija

Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) and the Law Faculty of Copenhagen University jointly call for expression of interest with regard to doctoral studies in:

  • international human rights
  • international public law
  • international private law

Up to three fully paid positions as PhD Research Fellows will be available for research starting in September 2011.
The study period is 3 years and exclusively in the English language. During the studies doctoral students will write and defend a doctoral dissertation, have teaching commitments, and complete courses offered by both host institutions and elsewhere.
It is foreseen that approximately half of the study period will be spent at Riga Graduate School of Law and half at Copenhagen University. This is a full time commitment and study costs, including study visits abroad, will be covered. Research fellows are employed as members of the RGSL faculty during their period of study.
The purpose of the PhD Programme is both to prepare the student for a continuing career in legal research and teaching and to educate highly qualified labour relevant to both the public and private sectors. The degree assures research qualifications at an international level.
