Doctoral Researcher Position Opening on Judicial Behavior in Conflict-Affected Societies

Friday, 16 Nov 2018
PRIO invites applications for a three-year, full-time position as Doctoral Researcher. The position provides the opportunity to work in a leading international research institution with high academic standards and an interdisciplinary environment.

This position is financed as part of a grant from the Research Council of Norway to PRIO for the project “All is fair in law and war: Judicial behavior in conflict-affected societies” (DCJ project), led by Senior Researcher Helga Malmin Binningsbø.

Working within the fields of social sciences, the Doctoral Researcher to be employed in this project will conduct fieldwork-based doctoral research which focuses on judicial behavior during and after the armed conflict in Colombia. Additionally, the project team has access to quantitative data on during-conflict justice (DCJ) that the Doctoral Researcher can take advantage of if s/he wishes. The Doctoral Researcher will be responsible for a significant component of the overall project, some of the parameters of data collection and analyses are therefore given by the project design. This work will result in an article-based PhD dissertation in English.


Applications are due Thursday, January 3, 2019.
