The candidate holds a degree in law with a minimum of cum laude and ideally a master in taxation or an LLM in taxation with a minimum of cum laude.
The candidate has some years of experience as a researcher or tax practitioner in the above areas of law.
The candidate fluently speaks and writes Dutch, English and French. Knowledge of German is an asset.
The researcher will carry on research under supervision of professor De Broe in different areas of international and European direct and indirect tax law.
In the recent past the research has covered several OECD BEPS action plans, the ATAD Directive, the proposed FTT Directive and the proposed CCCTB Directive, as well as their implementation in the domestic laws of relevant countries, including Belgium.
In the future research will be continued in these areas and will obviously be focusing on new developments in international and European direct and indirect tax law, such as taxation of digitalized economy, carbon taxes, air traffic and pollution taxes.
