UCL - Law

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: London

Funding amount: PhD studentships fully funded for 3 years

The State Silence project is an exciting research project led by the Principal Investigator, Dr. Danae Azaria, Associate Professor at UCL Faculty of Laws, funded for 5 years by a prestigious Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC), and hosted at the world-leading Faculty of Laws at UCL. Up to two PhD studentships fully funded for 3 years to conduct research on the following two topics:

(1) one PhD studentship will examine non-appearance before international courts and tribunals (preferably archival or empirical research). The PhD studentship relying on positive law analysis of non-appearance has been filled; and

(2) depending on the strength and interest of the proposal, one PhD studentship in the role/meaning of State silence in any special area of international law. For areas of interest to Dr Azaria, see project’s working packages, fields analysed in 2021 State Silence Workshop, as well as Dr Azaria’s latest research outputs and talks at www.statesilence.org.

The studentships are available from 1 October 2022 (or any time immediately after. There is no possibility of deferring to a date after January 2023).

These studentships present a unique opportunity to conduct supervised research at and be a part of the research community UCL Laws, being an integral part of the exciting and thriving research team for the outstanding ‘State Silence project’ which has global outreach, and on topics of general public international law. These are two of the three PhD studentships under State Silence.

You must have a strong degree in law (2:1 or first-class honours). It is not strictly essential to have a postgraduate law degree in public international law to apply, but this is strongly preferred and you will be expected to have 2:1 or a distinction.
