Title: Collateral rights and insolvency in early-modern Frankfurt

Salary: Depending on the experience and competences of the selected candidates, the appointment will be made at the rank of researcher 4.

Supervisor:
Dr D. De ruysscher (Tilburg University)

Organisational unit: Department of Public Law, Jurisprudence and Legal History, Tilburg University

Job description: The PhD-position is part of the CLLS-project (ERC Starting Grant 714759). This project aims at analyzing coherence in academic writings on law from the early modern period (c. 1500 - c. 1800) that concern the theme of collateral rights (security interests), that is, those rights facilitating expropriation of the assets of debtors in case of their default. Indications are that the impact of rules on collateral rights hinged on coherence as established in legal writings, and that in the period mentioned legal coherence for this theme was increasing. The PhD-position pertains to the second work package of the project 'Commercial hubs and coherence through legal scholarship' (2018-2021). In this work package, analysis of dynamics in the establishment of coherent norms will be pursued, as it developed among different legal sources in cities of commerce, and in relation to their contextual factors. This WP is concerned with three case studies (three cities of trade): Amsterdam, Lyon and Frankfurt. For more information, check www.clls.eu.

The successful candidates will write a PhD and are expected to contribute to the CLLS-project’s research, its publications and its activities.

Requirements: Candidates have studied law or history, and have written one or more papers on an institutional-historical or legal-historical topic. Candidates should demonstrate their interest in history and research methods (qualitative and⁄or quantitative). Acquaintance with archival research is a plus. Candidates are expected to combine good research skills with excellent networking and communicative skills and to have an entrepreneurial mindset. They have experience with both individual and teamwork research. It is required that candidates have high proficiency in English, both written and spoken, and have reading proficiency in German. A good command of Dutch, or willingness to learn Dutch, is an asset.
