Job vacancies: Junior Research Fellows, Refugee Studies Centre. Deadline 11/03/2016

The Refugee Studies Centre, within the Oxford Department of International Development, is seeking two Junior Research Fellows – one in the Economics of Forced Migration and one in Global Refugee Policy:

1) The RSC seeks a Junior Research Fellow in the Economics of Forced Migration, who can advance understanding of the relationships between development and displacement. In particular, the JRF will have an interest in the economics of forced migration, and will build on emerging strengths at the RSC. The post is full time, for two years, to start in April 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter.

2) In the context of various refugee crises including the European context, the RSC is launching a Centre-wide project called ‘Rethinking Refuge.’, which will include a series of workshops and seminars.  To advance this project and to stimulate creative academic reflection relating to refugee policy, the RSC seeks a JRF in Global Refugee Policy. The JRF will work collaboratively on the development of this centre-wide initiative, work with RSC staff on a series of joint outputs notably on ‘responsibility-sharing in the refugee regime’, and undertake independent research. The post is full-time, for two years, to start in April 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter.
