The Max Planck Institute Luxembourg has launched a call for applications for PhD scholarships in 2019 (please see announcement).
Advanced doctoral students working in comparative procedural law, international procedural law and adjudication are invited to apply by 30 April 2018. While proficiency in English is compulsory, the call is also open to doctoral candidates writing their thesis in a language other than English.
