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).

We are in particular (but not necessarily) looking for candidates with a research focus in:

The successful candidate must be able to contribute to the international academic debate and publish in leading journals and you will also be open for interdisciplinary cooperation. The successful candidate must be able to teach in German and/or English. The candidate has preferably a background in Swiss tax law or is at least prepared to acquaint with the Swiss tax system. You will have practical experience and very good teaching evaluations. The University of St.Gallen is committed to promoting equal opportunities and diversity. We particularly welcome applications from female academics.
