«A place where knowledge is created»
As a leading business university, we set global standards for research and teaching by promoting integrative thought, responsible action and an entrepreneurial spirit of innovation in business and society.
The Law School at the University of St.Gallen – the University of Management, Economics, Law, Social Sciences and International Affairs (HSG) is inviting applications for
2 Assistant Professors in Tax Law / Tax Policy
to start on 1 February 2021 or by arrangement with an ideal employment level of 50-75%, at the Institute for Public Finance, Fiscal Law and Law and Economics (IFF-HSG). The initial appointment is for three years, extendable to six years. The intention is that after six years, at least one of the two positions will change to a permanent position as Associate Professor.
To be considered for this position, the applicant will have a Ph.D. and a proven academic track record in tax law or tax policy. The position entails research and teaching as well as active engagement in raising the profile of IFF-HSG in executive education. This advertisement is primarily aimed at academics with a background in law, but applications from individuals with a background in business administration or public economics are also welcome as long as they are willing to teach tax law courses on law programs. We are looking in particular (but not exclusively) for candidates with a research focus on:
- Indirect taxes (in particular VAT and custom)
- National and/or international tax policy
In addition to making a visible contribution to the international academic debate, the successful candidate will have a proven track record of publications in leading journals and be open to interdisciplinary cooperation. The ability to teach in German and/or English language is expected. The candidate will preferably have a background in Swiss tax law, or be prepared to develop a deeper knowledge of the Swiss tax law system through independent study. Practical experience and excellent teaching evaluations are advantageous but not essential. The University of St.Gallen is committed to promoting equal opportunities and diversity, and explicitly encourages applications from women.
For further details, please contact Prof. Dr. Peter Hongler, Professor of Tax Law (email@example.com).
Applications should include a cover letter and the usual supporting documents (cover letter, CV, list of publications, teaching evaluations, description of present and future research profile on a single A4 sheet). They should be submitted online via www.unisg.ch/professorships to the President of the University of St.Gallen, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Ehrenzeller.
Closing date for applications: 30 June 2020
