The post is made available through the FWF funded project ‘The Source View on the Right to Privacy’ (P 36226-G), starting in September 2023. The project members are Dr Leonhard Menges (PI), a postdoc, and the to-be-hired doctoral student. The main focus of the project is the right to privacy.

The starting date is 1 September 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter).

The main tasks of the appointee will be research on the themes of the project (or closely related areas) that will result in a doctoral thesis and the organization of workshops (together with the other project members). The appointee will also have the opportunity to teach.
