UiT The Arctic University of Norway is with its 15.000 students one of the largest universities in Norway and the northernmost university in the world. The Norwegian Centre for the Law of the Sea (NCLOS), affiliated at the Law Faculty of UiT, has during the last 10 years established itself as a leading international research Centre on law of the sea and ocean governance. The NCLOS has around 25 employees, comprising both Norwegian and international researchers. The objective of NCLOS is to carry out a systematic assessment of the limits and possibilities of the law of the sea in achieving global goals of ocean resilience and sustainability, and on this basis identify possible future legal responses. The research portfolio of NCLOS includes a broad set of topics and issues, e.g., protection of marine biodiversity, conservation and management of fisheries, use of marine protected areas, maritime delimitation, and international institutions. NCLOS also has a long-standing competence in the teaching of law of the sea and ocean governance. The teaching and supervision in the Faculty’s two master programmes (the LLM and NOMPEL) is provided by members of NCLOS.
The tasks will be varied and both of administrative and scientific character, c.f. assisting in planning and organizing conferences and other administrative tasks, reading of proofs, verify sources, write summaries and abstracts and assisting the researchers of the Centre.
