We offer a part-time (50%) 18 month fixed-term contract, with the possibility of extension, based at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography, Banbury Road, Oxford.

You will be working principally on two projects; the City Initiative on Irregular Migrants in Europe, and the annual Autumn Academy, which in September 2017 will focus on irregular migrants. We are looking for a Researcher with sufficient specialist knowledge in Migration Studies to develop further projects and related funding proposals.

You will be responsible for research and writing papers and guidance material related to irregular migrants in Europe while contributing to the development of the broader research and knowledge-exchange agenda of the group, collaborating where necessary, and preparing material for publication. The post involves some travel for short periods in Europe.

You must hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with post-qualification research experience, or a Masters qualification with significant post-qualification research and/or learning exchange experience. You must also have a strong publication record and familiarity with the existing migration literature and research, in particular in the field of irregular migration in Europe.
