PhD Researcher, University of Bremen

At the University of Bremen Faculty 8 (Social Sciences), Political Science, the group of Prof. Susanne K. Schmidt invites applications for the following academic position (under the condition of job release): PhD Researcher

Salary Scale TV-L 13, part-time 65%, start date: as soon as possible.

The position is fixed term for three years and part of the project: “Rebalancing the Enlarged Single Market (RESiM)” that is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Austrian FWF, and conducted in cooperation with the University of Salzburg (Prof. Dr. Michael Blauberger).

Project Description:

With Eastern enlargement, the socio-economic heterogeneity within the European Union increased significantly. Labour migration has become a highly salient political issue within the EU. In the UK, the criticism of intra-EU mobility was central for the decision to leave the EU. In this project we analyse the social rebalancing in the enlarged single market by considering three forms of atypical labour migration: marginal employment, solo self-employment and posted work. Focusing on three old (Germany, France, Austria), and two new member states (Poland, Slovenia), the project studies which kind of new social compromise are established and where its challenges lie. We go beyond existing EU legislative and transposition studies by examining the interactions of the three branches of power at the EU and domestic levels. Are political compromises on social rebalancing challenged judicially? How well versed are member state administrations to control social dumping through atypical work, and how do different economic actors position themselves in between social protection and the EU’s economic freedoms? The comparison among different forms of atypical work and different member states promises to provide important guidelines for the successful rebalancing of the enlarged single market.

Your responsibilities:

Independent work on a dissertation in the context of the project. Participation in the course programme of the doctoral school BIGSSS is possible. Research support for other members of the team. Close collaboration for interviews and data collection with the postdoctoral position in Salzburg and the two project leaders.


M.A. Degree in Political Science, or related. Expertise in policy analysis, qualitative and/or quantitative methods.

Language requirements: English and one Eastern European language (in particular: Polish or Slovenian).Working knowledge of German desirable.

Desirable: Interest in European integration; some knowledge of European law.

Applications including a cover letter explaining your motivation, CV, copies of degree certificates, should be submitted by Wednesday, March 27, 2019
