KU Leuven Centre For IT & IP Law: Research Fellow (M/F - Senior/Junior) with focus on IP Law

The KU Leuven Centre for IT & IP Law (CiTiP) is looking for a Junior or Senior Research Fellow, who will assist in the analysis, impact, and opportunities of IP regulations, in particular copyright, in relation to a variety of topics/projects including Open Science, Open Data/PSI, trade secrets, and more generally to emerging issues of data governance from a property/IP perspective. The candidate will be assisting in research projects either as a researcher or as a coordinator (depending on junior/senior) in the aforementioned areas employing a wide range of methodological approaches (case scenarios, EU comparative analysis, the historical development of legal regulations, etc). As the research may also develop in other areas of law (e.g. fundamental rights, competition law, consumer protection, property law, unfair competition), your familiarity with (some) of these topics will be an asset. The deadline to apply is 8 June 2022 and more information about the position can be found here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
