Up to five 3 year postdoctoral fellowships are available at PluriCourts, a Centre for the Study of the Legitimate Roles of the Judiciary in the Global Order, a multidisciplinary Centre of Excellence at the Faculty of Law, Department of Public and International Law of University of Oslo.
The postdoctoral researchers will study international courts and tribunals (ICs) in one or more of five issue areas: human rights, trade, investment, international criminal courts and the environment. There is a slight preference for research on human rights and trade. The research should apply methodology from the fields of political science, philosophy and/or law, with a slight preference for applicants in political science or political philosophy.
The candidate may be assigned a 10 % workload of tasks including teaching, supervision or other relevant tasks.
