New PhD vacancy on Personal Data Transfers & Borders (DEADLINE: 21 January 2020)

  • December 11, 2019

[Vacancy] The Law, Science, Technology & Society (LSTS) Research Group, together with the Brussels Privacy Hub (BPH), is launching a call for applications for PhD candidates in the area of personal data transfers.

The PhD candidate will work on the SRP project Articulating Law, Technology, Ethics and Politics: Issues of Enforcement and Jurisdiction of EU Data Protection Law under and beyond the General Data Protection Regulation (ALTEP-DP). The project inquiries into the continuously evolving articulations of law, technology, ethics and politics, searching for a better understanding of the boundaries that separate them, and that they create and sustain. EU data protection law is taken as a starting point, more concretely the landscape delineated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This forms the common focus of three intersecting Research Lines (RL), and a transversal RL: RL1 on Automated compliance with the GDPR; RL2 on Elucidating and delivering data protection across borders; RL3 on The Ethification of Privacy and Data Protection; and RL4 on Transformations of the relations between law, politics, ethics and technology. The candidate will contribute primarily to the RL2, but also to the intersecting RL4.
