Postdoctoral Researcher: Digitalised Migration and Matching Procedures

Published Deadline Location
today 16 Oct Nijmegen

Job description

Are you an enthusiastic scientist with expertise in interdisciplinary research on issues of migrant rights, social inequalities and governance of migration-related diversity in relation to digitalisation? Then you have a part to play as a postdoctoral researcher and engaged scholar at the Centre for Migration Law and our university-wide RUNOMI network that strives for academic excellence and societal impact.
Your research will focus on two manifestations of digitalization and migration that affect migrants’ in- and exclusion in receiving countries. First, legal procedures have digitalized, based on online information and communication procedures, such as the European visa applications or online migration court hearings. Second, online tools for social integration and labor market matching have been developed and the European Commission is furthering these to match refugees and migrants to jobs in Europe. These manifestation of digital migration procedures is underexplored and offers opportunities to explain novel realities of in- and exclusion and social justice shaped by digital procedures.
You will collaborate with other researchers in the Radboud University Network on Migrant Inclusion (RUNOMI ). RUNOMI was initiated in 2018 to strengthen university-wide, interdisciplinary collaboration in research, teaching and collaboration with societal actors. The network,  connects more than 100 member scientists working at all RU faculties with expertise on migrant inclusion issues.
The Radboud University wishes to further develop this network into a leading international hub of expertise in this field in the coming years, which is why it has initiated a large-scale staff recruitment initiative entailing 8 FTEs of assistant professors and 4.5 FTEs of postdoctoral fellows at various faculties. This vacancy forms part of this university-wide initiative, which focuses on the thematic intersection between migrant inclusion and digitalisation, with the two priority areas ‘Communication, Information and Social Inequality’ and ‘Well-being and Health’.
