Vacancy: Pedro Arrupe Research Fellowship in Forced Migration

Pedro Arrupe Research Fellowship in Forced Migration

Campion Hall, University of Oxford in association with the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford and Jesuit Refugee Service International, Rome.

This exciting new two-year Fellowship is a collaboration between Campion Hall, the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC), and Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) International. The Fellow will design an independent academic research programme relating to forced migration to be undertaken over two years. There is an expectation that the results of this research will reach beyond an academic audience and help to inform the work of JRS International.

The appointed Fellow will be a member of Campion Hall and have his or her academic base at the RSC, as a Research Associate. Although the primary focus of the post is research, the Fellow will, by agreement with Campion Hall, also be encouraged to contribute to teaching and supervision on the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies. The Fellow will be expected to engage with the JRS, attending meetings and conferences on a mutually agreed basis.

The successful candidate will possess a relevant doctorate, or evidence that a doctorate is imminently expected, as well as an active research record in the field of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies or cognate areas. A short (one page) plan of the academic research proposed during the tenure of the Fellowship should be submitted upon application. Additional funding will be available for research.
