The research will focus on the legal protection of the underwater cultural heritage (UCH), with a particular emphasis on the possibilities to develop a common regimen for that legal protection among the EU States Members and to be applied in EU waters (i.e. up to 200nm). Current legislation at all levels —international, European, national and regional—, directly or indirectly affecting UCH will be analyzed and proposals for legislative coordination and integration would be made to all stakeholders concerned (EU institutions and Governments, among others).
At the deadline for the submission of proposals (10/09/2015), researchers:
• shall be in possession of a doctoral degree in Law, with a PhD in International or EU Law, or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.
• PhD or previous research experience on UCH, heritage law, law of the sea or maritime law will be an asset.
• must not have resided or carried out their main activities in the country of Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the above mentioned deadline.
