30 August 2016

The Faculty of Social Sciences (FaSS) and Centre for Ethnic and Migration Studies (CEDEM) at the University of Liège invite applications for two scholarships. The vacant positions concern the doctoral and post-doctoral level as part of the Migration, Transnationalism and Social Protection in (post-)crisis Europe project (MiTSoPro). This project is funded by an ERC starting grant awarded to Jean-Michel Lafleur.

Application deadline: 7 October 2016.
Start date: November 2016


  • One doctoral position: full-time, fixed-term position available for 4 years
  • One post-doctoral position: full-time, fixed-term position available for 3 years

The scholarships are attached to the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant for the project, Migration, Transnationalism and Social Protection in (post-)crisis Europe (MiTSoPro) led by Dr Jean-Michel Lafleur. MiTSiPro articulates social policy and migration studies’ approaches to ‘transnational social protection’ defined as migrants’ cross-border strategies to cope with social risks in areas such as health or unemployment that combine entitlements to host and home state-based public welfare policies and market-, family- and community-based practices.
