(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Research fellow in European Studies

As a PhD research fellow, you will be expected to develop and implement your own PhD project on a theme related to the legal-political aspects of domestic implementation of EU law, with a specific focus on EEA law and Norwegian law. The NAV scandal demonstrated that legal and political factors may interact in influencing how EEA law is interpreted and applied. Extant theories of judicial and administrative decision-making may be used to analyse how political incentives influence how law is interpreted and applied by courts and administrative agencies. Possible research questions include (but are not restricted to): How do Norwegian courts and administrative agencies balance the authority of EU/EEA law and Norwegian law in cases of possible tension between the two? What explains variation in Norwegian courts’ decisions to request advisory opinions from the EFTA Court in cases with EEA relevance? How does the legal complexity and the legal-methodological challenges facing national authorities that implement EU/EEA law interact with political interests? How do governmental and non-governmental actors attempt to influence the implementation of EU/EEA law in domestic courts and agencies? How do non-state actors mobilize in support of or in opposition to the implementation of EU/EEA law and under what conditions is such mobilization successful in influencing domestic implementation of EEA law? Comparative approaches are welcome, where Norwegian judicial and/or administrative decision-making is contrasted with practices in EU member states.

Deadline : 28th August 2023

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title:  Ph.d Research Fellowship

Amber is a fossil resin secreted by plants between 300 and 16 million years ago, mostly during phases of climate breakdown and ecological crises. Today, geologists and palaeontologists believe that the study of amber specimens can help us answering key questions about the planet’s climatic history, and understanding how and why species adapted, or failed to adapt, during previous phases of mass extinction. Amber is also a well-known and sought-after organic gemstone, fuelling violent mining economies from Myanmar to Russia, Ukraine, and Mexico, and constitutes a global market increasingly driven by Chinese demand. Amber thus offers a privileged entry point to interrogate the current moment characterised by growing extractivism, trade, environmental crises, and conflict. And it is a compelling lens through which we can address some of the key empirical and theoretical challenges posed by the Anthropocene.

About The University of Oslo, Norway – Official Website

The University of Oslo, until 1939 named the Royal Frederick University is the oldest university in Norway, located in the Norwegian capital of Oslo. Until 1 January 2016 it was the largest Norwegian institution of higher education in terms of size, now surpassed only by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The Academic Ranking of World Universities has ranked it the 58th best university in the world and the third best in the Nordic countries. In 2015, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings ranked it the 135th best university in the world and the seventh best in the Nordics. While in its 2016, Top 200 Rankings of European universities, the Times Higher Education listed the University of Oslo at 63rd, making it the highest ranked Norwegian university.

The university has approximately 27,700 students and employs around 6,000 people. Its faculties include (Lutheran) theology (with the Lutheran Church of Norway having been Norway’s state church since 1536), law, medicine, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, dentistry, and education. The university’s original neoclassical campus is located in the centre of Oslo; it is currently occupied by the Faculty of Law. Most of the university’s other faculties are located at the newer Blindern campus in the suburban West End. The Faculty of Medicine is split between several university hospitals in the Oslo area. The university also includes some formally independent, affiliated institutes such as the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO), NKVTS and the Frisch Centre.

The university was founded in 1811 and was modeled after the University of Copenhagen and the recently established University of Berlin. It was originally named for King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway, and received its current name in 1939. The university is informally also known as Universitetet (“the university”), having been the only university in Norway, until 1946 and was commonly termed “The Royal Frederick’s” (Det Kgl. Frederiks), before the name change.

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in the university’s Atrium, from 1947 to 1989 and will be so again in 2020, making it the only university in the world to be involved in awarding a Nobel Prize. Since 2003, the Abel Prize is awarded in the Atrium. Five researchers affiliated with the university have been Nobel laureates.
