Current vacancies
Three Post-Doctoral Research Fellows
The School of Geography and Sustainable Development is seeking to appoint three Post-Doctoral Research Fellows to work on a project on Understanding Life Trajectories of Immigrants and Their Descendants in Europe and Projecting Future Trends (MigrantLife) funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The five-year project is led by Prof. Hill Kulu and it will investigate how employment, housing and family trajectories evolve and interact in the lives of immigrants and their descendants in the UK, France, Germany and Sweden; and how factors related to a societal context, an early life context and critical transitions shape their life histories. The study will project their future life trajectories using innovative computer simulation techniques, considering the main life domains and diversity between and within immigrant groups. The project will exploit large-scale longitudinal data from the four countries to deepen our understanding of the relationships between the three life domains, and the causes of less and more successful life trajectories among immigrants and their descendants. This project will show whether the current heterogeneity between and within immigrant and minority groups vanishes over time or rather persists, suggesting an increasing diversity of European societies. 

Informal enquiries can be directed to: Professor Hill Kulu,  

Closing Date: 4 September 2019
