Visiting Research Fellowship for PhD Students in Migration Studies- Donau University Krems

Applications are open until 24 November

The Department of Migration and Globalisation at the University for Continuing Education is inviting interested recent graduates in a social science discipline to apply for a short-term research fellowship between December 2023 and March 2024 in preparation of a PhD research proposal for the FTI-dissertation funding scheme of the GFF-Noe – the Lower Austrian research funding body.

The department is currently awarding to an interested graduate of a social science discipline. We are inviting applications for a short-term research fellowship for the period from December 2023 and March 2024 for preparing a PhD research proposal for the FTI-dissertation funding scheme of the GFF-Noe – the Lower Austrian research funding body.

The visiting fellow will be supported in preparing a PhD proposal closely linked to the Horizon Europe funded project “Measuring irregular migration and related policies” (MIrreM). MIrreM examines the quantitative dimension of irregular migration and related policies. It assesses existing estimates and statistical indicators and explores new quantitative approaches. A special focus lies on regularisation policies and their impact. Geographically, the PhD project should have a focus on Austria, although we explicitly welcome comparisons with other contexts. During this four-month research fellowship, s/he will be working on the draft proposal, discuss progress in seminars and receive guidance and feedback from migration scholars of different disciplines.
