Funded PhD Sanctuary Studentship at University College Cork focusing on forced migration from Ukraine

The University College Cork (Ireland) is inviting applications for a funded PhD studentship (up to 3 years) to undertake research on migration and mobilities from Ukraine to Ireland as part of the large scale international project "MIGMOBS - The Orders and Borders of Global Inequality: Migration and Mobilities in Late Capitalism". The studentship is available as a Sanctuary Studentship for up to three years to a Ukrainian resident with official temporary protection status as a forced migrant in Ireland. It includes student fees, stipend, and financial support for research and dissemination activities, and will commence on 1st October 2024. University College Cork is an accredited University of Sanctuary.

The successful candidate will pursue a PhD in Social Science, jointly supervised by ERC PI Prof Adrian Favell (University College Cork, Radical Humanities Laboratory) and Dr Caitríona Ní Laoire (University College Cork, School of Applied Social Studies), as a sub-project of the ERC Advanced Grant project MIGMOBS. They will jointly be based in the Radical Humanities Laboratory, and School of Applied Social Studies at UCC.

The PhD will follow all requirements (including coursework, completion of mobules, training, a learning plan and annual progress review) of a PhD in Social Science at the School of Applied Social Studies, and the student will be an active member of the Research Cluster in Migration and Integration in the Institute for Social Sciences in the 21st century. They will also join a large team of international researchers at all levels based at UCC and elsewhere in the ERC MIGMOBS project. Renewal of the studentship each year is conditional on a satisfactory review of progress at the end of each year.
