Senior Research Fellow/Project Coordinator – Complex Migration Flows and Drivers, CERC in Migration and Integration, Toronto Metropolitan University, Toronto, Canada. Deadline: 15 June 2022.
The Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration at Toronto Metropolitan University invites applications of interest from post-doctoral and more senior researchers for the position of a full-time Project Coordinator for a global partnership project examining complex migration flows and multiple drivers in comparative perspective. This six-year project adopts a socio-ecological systems framework that integrates the different drivers and types of migration. The multidisciplinary project will focus on the following:
Generate new data and combine with existing evidence, to map the links between internal, intra-regional and intercontinental migration along complex corridors of population flows in three migration systems;
Develop and test new analytical models that explain the interplay among migration drivers (environmental conditions, demographic and health factors, economic development dynamics, socio-political issues) taking into account also cultural and emotional processes that eventually shape people’s decisions to migrate; and
Translate research knowledge into policy-tools (by developing digital visualization tools, interactive story-driven dashboards, and infographics modeled on approaches found in contemporary data journalism) that will support an efficient and rights-based governance of international migration.
