Call for postdoc candidates interested in applying for a MSCA Individual Fellowship in Public International Law/Law of the Sea/International Environmental Law

OFFER DESCRIPTION

UiT The Arctic University of Norway has established «The Arctic MSCA-IF program» (https://uit.no/project/arcticmsca) to recruit excellent young researchers planning to apply for a Marie Skƚodowska-Curie individual fellowship (MSCA-IF) to pursue a career in research. We invite applications from promising young researchers within the field of Public International Law, Law of the Sea, and/or International Environmental Law. The selected candidate will write a proposal for a 24-month MSCA-IF at UiT together with Prof. Vito De Lucia. This is an opportunity to accelerate your research career while living in the urban research city of Tromsø, uniquely located at the top of the world surrounded by some of Europe’s last pristine wild nature.

This call is one of 55 from pre-selected supervisors at UiT The Arctic University of Norway through the “Arctic MSCA-PF program” (uit.no/project/arcticmsca/list-of-participants). Successful postdoc candidates will be invited to Tromsø (travel and accommodation expenses covered) for a three-day MSCA-PF symposium June 8-10, 2022 (if pandemic allows). At this event, the candidates will present their past research achievements, discuss future plans with their potential supervisor, and learn how to write a successful MSCA-PF application. The selected candidates will, jointly with the supervisor, write the MSCA-PF application by the deadline of September 14, 2022.  

In this call we search for talented, young researchers within the field of Public International Law, Law of the Sea, and/or International Environmental Law, as presented by Prof. Vito De Lucia: 

The general research field encompasses broadly speaking Public International Law, and more specifically Law of the Sea and International Environmental Law. Postdoctoral candidates are expected to align with the current research agenda of the Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea at UiT, which focuses on exploring the limits and possibilities of the current architecture and substantive norms of the law of the sea in the context of the Anthropocene, both in general and more specifically in relation to Arctic marine governance. Proposals should fall preferably within one of the following themes: sovereignty, ocean commons, ocean space, ocean narratives. Within this scope, research proposals may both address substantive aspects or theoretical and methodological aspects related to the relevant themes. Theoretically-inclined proposals are especially welcome, as are proposals that take a law-in-context or critical legal approach. 

Please send your CV (max. 3 pages) and describe a research project that will strengthen and complement the presented research area (max. 2 pages) to vito.delucia@uit.no by Feb. 25th, 2022. Mark your application “Arctic MSCA”.
