Job vacancy: Researcher for the SSHOC Project

Location: Centre d’études européennes et de politique comparée, CEE (UMR 8239). Sciences Po.

Background: We are seeking to appoint a Researcher to work with Prof Laura Morales in the project “Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC)”, grant number 823782, of the H2020 programme INFRAEOSC-2018-2 funded by the European Commission.

SSHOC is a large-scale collaborative project and, within its larger scope, the team led by Prof Morales at CEE will take care of a sub-project in coordination with COST Action 16111 ETHMIGSURVEYDATA in order to consolidate a comprehensive (and constantly updated) database that lists all the hundreds of quantitative surveys undertaken with ethnic and migrant minority (sub)samples across Europe in a way that it complies with the FAIR principles. Additionally, the team at CEE will lead the development of a pilot sub-project that will allow assessing the feasibility of setting a full stream of the European Question Bank (EQB) dedicated to the ethnic and migrant minority (EMM) survey data that will be compiled by the COST Action ETHMIGSURVEYDATA, in coordination with other partners in the larger SSHOC project. The appointed research will thus join a large international team of experts from all across Europe on the integration of EMMs and on survey research and will have the chance to work on a research project that will break new ground in these fields. This is, thus, a unique opportunity to build a career in survey research focusing on this specific sub-population. 

Contract details: The appointment is full-time and available from 18th February (or as soon as possible thereafter, and always before 11th March) with a contract duration of 24 months (renewable subject to funding).

Type of contract: Fixed-duration contract (CDD)

Gross salary (salaire brut): between €2,500 and € 3,000 per month depending on qualifications and experience.

Other contributions: partial contribution for transportation card within Paris, and restaurant tickets.
