Information on vacancies at the Institute and opportunities to be considered for future work. From time to time the Institute also publishes relevant vacancy notices from partner institutions.

Research Assistants Programme

BIICL has established a programme of rolling paid Research Assistant opportunities to assist those in the early stages of a research career in international and comparative law.

Volunteer research and other opportunities

The Institute offers opportunities for volunteers to assist in its research and activities. These are highly flexible, part-time opportunities, undertaken on a short-term basis to suit your availability. It is ideally placed for law students and recent graduates to gain greater insights into the fields of international and comparative law, offering an outstanding and highly-regarded legal and academic environment for those interested in the areas of law covered by the Institute's research and events programmes.

Bingham Centre International Visiting Fellowships

The Bingham Centre has hosted up to three International Visiting Fellows each year since 2014. These Fellowships are open to individuals who ordinarily live and work outside the UK. The Fellowships will each last for a period of one to three months, at least one week of which will be spent at the Centre. Successful applicants will have a rule of law focus to their work. The programme covers airfare, accommodation for up to a week, and a modest subsistence allowance.

Visiting Fellowships

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law welcomes applications from Visiting Research Fellows to conduct their research. The objectives of the Visiting Research Fellowship are to provide academics with an opportunity to have a base in London to carry out independent research work, not necessarily with the Institute's ongoing programmes, whilst benefiting from working alongside the Institute's permanent research staff.

Research and Book Projects

BIICL has an active research and publishing programme which require us to foster and maintain broad networks of specialist individuals and institutions, across many jurisdictions. From time to time, BIICL may request assistance with current projects or in the formation of research networks for project proposals.
