POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with a research focus on migration law, Uppsala University — LIMITE : 11/​01/​2019

The Univer­sity of Uppsala is offering a two-year post­doc­toral fellow­ship in the area of migra­tion law research, coor­di­nated by Odysseus Member Prof. Rebecca Thor­burn Stern.

Migra­tion law is, in Sweden, a rela­tively new field of law. Legal research in this field is in a dynamic state of devel­op­ment. In recent years, the Faculty of Law at Uppsala Univer­sity has estab­lished itself as one of Sweden’s leading research envi­ron­ments in the field of migra­tion law. The Faculty has, in partic­ular, worked to promote migra­tion law in a Swedish perspec­tive. One central feature of this work has been estab­lishing the Lund/​Uppsala Migra­tion Law Network, a joint research envi­ron­ment for migra­tion law at the two univer­sity facul­ties of law in Uppsala and Lund. Recently, The Faculty of Law at Gothen­burg Univer­sity joined the network which is now referred to as GL/​UMIN. The network welcomes doctoral students as well as senior researchers working on national and inter­na­tional aspects of migra­tion law. Infor­ma­tion about this research envi­ron­ment is avail­able on its website, www​.migra​tionlawnet​work​.org. The research network will be open to the post­doc­toral fellow.

Post­doc­toral project orien­ta­tion : All project proposals in which migra­tion law is a central and inte­gral part of the research project are rele­vant within the frame­work of this call. Since migra­tion law is by defi­n­i­tion, as mentioned above, a field including inter­na­tional as well as national elements, projects reflecting this are welcomed ; it is however not an absolute requirement.

Duties : The post­doc­toral fellow­ship includes 80 per cent research and 20 per cent teaching and/​or admin­is­tra­tive duties.

The post­doc­toral fellow is expected to contribute, both inde­pen­dently and in coop­er­a­tion with other researchers, to the research and teaching envi­ron­ment at the Depart­ment of Law. More­over, they are expected to publish high-quality research and other­wise promote the devel­op­ment of the Department’s acad­emic milieu.

Dead­line for appli­ca­tion is 11 January 2019.
