Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Law of the Sea

Applications for this vacancy closed on 19 February 2016 at 12:00PM
The Faculty of Law, Department of Zoology, and School of Geography and the
Environment have been awarded funding by the Oxford Martin School for a
project on improving sustainability in the global oceans, with particular
focus on fisheries management and biodiversity protection. A significant
element of this interdisciplinary project will work to resolve barriers to
progress in sustainable ocean management, and includes key areas of fisheries
management, seabed extraction, the mapping and protection of biodiversity and
ecosystem services, technological solutions to regulatory enforcement, and the
associated changes required in governance and legal frameworks necessary to
enable effective regulation, particularly in areas beyond national
jurisdiction. This work will feed into discussions relating to a new
implementing agreement for UNCLOS (UN Convention on the Law of the Sea), which
is likely to run through 2017, 2018 and beyond.



We are seeking to fill a postdoctoral position for a fixed-term of 3 years
within a highly interdisciplinary team with primary responsibility for
investigating the international legal implications of enforcement of fisheries
and biodiversity protection within and beyond national jurisdiction, including
in marine protected areas. A doctorate in public international law with a
significant component of law of the sea, particularly on issues of enforcement
jurisdiction, is essential. Responsibilities will also include the production
of publications. Experience of shadowing international negotiations would be
an asset. This project will provide the opportunity to experience first-hand
how to bring research into practical application in international law-making,
connect with top researchers, policy experts, practitioners and business
leaders, and contribute to meaningful and timely solutions for the world’s
oceans and fisheries.
