See: https://www.academictransfer.com/employer/UM/vacancy/35247/lang/en/

The deadline for submitting applications is 19 September 2016. 

These positions are funded by a prestigious Consolidator Grant recently awarded to prof. Maarten Vink by the European Research Council (ERC) for the 5-year project "Migrant Life Course and Legal Status Transition (MiLifeStatus)". The objective of this cutting-edge comparative research project is to investigate the relevance of citizenship within the individual life course of an immigrant. When does citizenship provide a boost to migrant integration? The project analyzes why, how and for whom legal status transition matters and, especially, how variation in policies between countries impacts on this relation. The research will focus on naturalization trajectories and integration outcomes in socioeconomic domains, such as labor market performance, as well as living conditions, health status, out-migration and education among first and second-generation immigrants. The project team will analyze longitudinal data from population registers in the Netherlands and four Scandinavian countries (3 PhD students, 1 post-doc) and, in addition, longitudinal survey data from Germany, Canada and the United States (1 post-doc). The project employs advanced regression techniques and a comparative approach.
