PluriCourts Fellowships (open call) for researchers in political science, philosophy and law

PluriCourts invites scholars to apply for visiting research fellowship at PluriCourts throughout the year (with an exemption for the holiday period (1 July – 15 August) . The duration of the contracts is 3 – 12 months. The candidate must hold a doctoral degree in political science, philosophy or law.

In October 2019 we will move in to new offices, and will therefore not invite any new guest researchers between 15 August and 31 December.

The visiting scholars will focus on international courts and tribunals in one of the PluriCourts’ thematic research areas.  Projects within Trade, Criminal Law, or Environment will be prioritized. Political scientists and philosophers are especially encouraged to apply.

Please visit the PluriCourts website for more information about the center. The proposed research project should relate to at least one of the research topics in PluriCourts' new research plan.

Applicants must fill out this online form, and submit the following documents (in one PDF):

  • A current Curriculum Vitae, including a list of publications
  • A document of no more than three pages, where you describe the purpose of the visit, the research you intend to do during your visit (project plan), and other issues of relevance for the consideration of your application.
  • At least one letter of recommendation

As a general rule, all visiting scholars are self-funded and are themselves responsible for all matters concerning their own travel and accommodation. When circumstances allow, we may be able to offer some assistance through applying for, and/or supporting an application for University of Oslo accommodation for visiting scholars.

  • The researchers will be allocated a workspace in a shared office, with access to  network, printing and library facilities.
  • The researchers will also be involved in other projects at PluriCourts and are expected to participate in the academic and social activities at the research Centre.
