Three postdoctoral researchers are sought to work as part of a team in the
Department of Geography UCC, on a Marie Curie funded research programme
exploring the immigration and integration experiences of children and young
people in contemporary Ireland. Each researcher will have responsibility for
designing and conducting a research project which will contribute to the
overall coherence of the programme as a whole. The methodology will be
primarily qualitative, with particular emphasis on child-centred
methodological approaches. The research team will be interdisciplinary and
international. The likely structure is that Post A will focus on
children/young people in African/refugee/asylum-seeker migrant communities
in Ireland, Post B on migrant children/young people from eastern Europe and
Post C on migrant children/young people from other parts of the world (eg.,
Chinese, Philipinne, Indian, Brazilian, or others).

All three successful candidates will have a PhD or a minimum of four years'
full-time postgraduate research experience, and will have experience in
conducting research on migration/ethnicity/migrant communities, and/or
childhood/youth studies. They will have the ability to design and manage
their own research projects, while working within a team. Appropriate
language skills and empirical research skills would be an advantage.
