Zusammenfassung

Beschreibung

The Department of Anthropology is one of the departments at the University of Amsterdam’s Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. The Department is currently seeking 2 PhD candidates for the ERC Starting Grant project ‘ReloCare: Relocating Care within Europe’ led by Dr. Kristine Krause. The PhD track is part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) programme group Health Care and the Body.

Project description

ReloCare studies the entanglement of uneven European welfare states by investigating transnational commercial care infrastructures and their impact on places, care systems and people’s lives. It starts from the outsourcing of vulnerable (mainly elderly) populations to places where care is more affordable by focusing on care homes in Central Eastern Europe (Poland, Czech Republic/Slovakia, and Hungary) that recruit patients from Austria and Germany, and offer care at roughly one-third of the cost of similar institutions in the home countries. Most of these care homes are located in regions characterized by a long German and Habsburg-Hungarian history, adding historical complexity to the story. Some serve only German-speaking patients, others serve local, wealthier elderly people as well. Some are run by former migrant care workers, others by international companies, bringing labour migration and real estate investment into the picture.

As postdoctoral researcher you will be based in Amsterdam at the AISSR and will do ethnographic research for the overall project but also develop your own focus and profile further, preferably in relation to the overall project. Organisational and research management tasks will be part of your responsibilities.

PhD Positions: Deadline 15 February 2021

What will you be doing?

  • You will be a PhD candidate in the project ‘Relocating Care within Europe’. You will be part of a research team consisting of two PhD candidates, one Postdoctoral researcher and the Principal Investigator.
  • Your main task will be to develop your own PhD project within the framework of the overall project (for the project description please contact the Principal Investigator).
  • Next to working on your own PhD project, you will contribute to collaborative aspects of the project. This will include collecting data for jointly written publication(s), and lending respective (language) expertise to team members.
  • You are expected to conduct ethnographic fieldwork in one or more of the following countries: Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, Austria. Since the project has a strong transnational component, you might be required to do research in more than one country.
  • For those parts of the employment period in which you will not do fieldwork, you are expected to live in Amsterdam and take active part in team meetings and the research environment at the AISSR;
  • Teaching (up to 10% of your time when you are not on fieldwork) and organizational support for the project leader will be part of your job responsibilities. These tasks will allow you to gain valuable professional experience next to working towards your PhD.
