2 Guest Researchers for Interdisciplinary Research Group on “Migration and Public Health” at the Centre for Global Migration Studies, University of Göttingen (2022-2024)

The Centre for Global Migration Studies (CeMig) at the University of Göttingen invites applications for 2 Guest Researchers (all genders welcome)
The interdisciplinary research group on “Migration and Public Health” brings together scholars at the University of Göttingen from various disciplines (Cultural Anthropology, Development Economics, Medical Ethics and History of Medicine, Philosophy, Psychology, Social and Political Sciences). By applying a multi-level governance approach and uniting quantitative and qualitative as well as empirical and philosophical methodological approaches the research group investigates norm- and regime-building processes in the context of migration and health. In global comparison they aim to address how the “protection of life” and the “right to health” are defined, encoded and implemented in relation to migrant populations and post-colonial minorities, as well as which ethical, social and political questions arise from this practice.

For the period February 2022 – January 2024 we are inviting 2 postdoctoral scholars (postdoctoral researchers or doctoral candidates close to graduation) to develop and conduct a research project in one of the following research areas:

1. “The right-to-health approach in global norm-building”, focusing on how international organizations define the nexus between migration and health.
2. “Politics of access: Conceptualizations of eligibility and access provisions”, focusing on the formulation and implementation of migration-related health policies, norm-building and the provision of access to health infrastructures and services on the national level.

The guest researchers are expected to organize and lead a reading group, to participate in the research group’s activities (research group meeting, colloquium, lecture series) and to contribute to joined publications.

Requirements:
• an excellent Master’s and/ or doctoral degree in any of the related disciplines (Cultural/ Social Anthropology, Development Economics, Medical Ethics and History of Medicine, Philosophy, Psychology, Social and Political Sciences)
• methodological training/ experience in empirical research and institutional analysis (the latter especially for research area 2)
• a research focus on migration and/ or public health including a documented academic publication record
• work experience in interdisciplinary research environments

The appointment as a guest researcher is made according to § 35 paragraph 2 of the Nds. Hochschulgesetz (NHG). Appropriate salary (subject to social security contributions) will be paid.
