Marie Curie position for a PhD


A generous 3-year Marie Curie position for a PhD with the title "Towards a Transatlantic Public Procurement Market" will shortly be advertised by the University of Birmingham and is already advertised on Euraxess:





This is part of an entire programme of 15 funded PhDs on various aspects of Transatlantic Trade and Investment and other PCLG members such as Roberto Caranta from Torino are also part of this project.


The successful applicant must not have resided in the UK for more than 12 months over the last 3 years on 1 September 2017 (so I understand a master student is not excluded) but can be of any nationality.



This eBook analyses public procurement opportunities, rules and procedures in Serbia, with particular reference to the new legislative framework. It highlights public procurement policy, including choice of participants and award of contracts, as well as information about bidding process and Public Procurement Development Strategy. Furthermore, the book gives a review of some key explanations that bidders should also keep in mind,  in order to win public contracts. It finally notes that success in winning public procurement contracts depends on critical information and knowledge of the bidding process.

Janina Boughey, "Administrative Law: the Next Frontier for Comparative Law", in International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol. 62, January 2013, p. 55, spec. p. 79:

"[...] [P]ublic contracting [...] is probably the most compared topic in administrative law. Indeed there exists a major international comparative research group dedicated solely to this issue ('Public Contracts in Legal Globalization', <www.public-contracts.net>), and it was recently the topic of a significant treatise comparing the law of 28 countries (R Noguellou and U Stelkens [eds], Droit comparé des Contrats Publics [Bruylant 2010])."
