The Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics (ACLE) at the University of Amsterdam
The Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics (www.acle.nl), is a joint initiative of the economics and law faculties of the University of Amsterdam. The objective of the ACLE is to promote high-quality research in the fields at the interface of law and economics. Located in the heart of Amsterdam’s old city, the ACLE presently associates around twenty scholars in both disciplines, ranging from full professor to PhD students. The Center's main focus areas are: Competition & Regulation, Corporate Governance & Law, and Foundations of Law & Economics.
The purpose of the Chair is to strengthen empirical research in law and economics, and particularly the application of legal analysis, statistical inference and economic modeling to fundamental areas of national and international law ranging from tort liability, property and intellectual property, contracts, criminal law, to law enforcement and litigation.
The prospective Chair-holder should be an established researcher with international standing reflected in high-level publications in top law & economics journals. We envision a researcher that has a rigorous knowledge of relevant fields of law combined with econometrical and statistical skills. The principal tasks are active engagement in research, teaching and course development, and the supervision of PhD students and post docs.
The Chair in empirical legal studies is a full time tenured position in the Amsterdam Center for Law & Economics (ACLE). The formal appointment of the Chair will be within the Faculty of Law.
While a senior position is available, the position could also be filled at a more junior level, i.e. a tenure-track appointment that could mature over time to a full professor.
