Postdoctoral Researcher: International Mobility and World Development, Department of Education, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK. Deadline: 20 January 2023.
This is an exciting opportunity for a post-doctoral researcher to join a research project, funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State, examining the links between international mobility and world development. Reporting to Prof Maia Chankseliani, the post-holder will join a team of six enthusiastic, interdisciplinary researchers based at the University of Oxford Department of Education. The post-doctoral researcher will be fluent in Arabic and possess familiarity with the Middle East & Northern Africa (in particular, Lebanon, Libya, Qatar, UAE, Morocco, Yemen, Iraq, Jordan, Palestinian Territories, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Israel), and will lead on the data collection, searches, analysis, and presentation of findings on the Middle East & Northern Africa and, if required, on other regions. They will also work on extensive searches of secondary sources, conduct elite interviews online and engage in conducting systematic literature reviews, as well as independently develop a holistic understanding of the designated global region (Middle East & Northern Africa) in order to be able to meaningfully contextualise and interpret numeric and narrative findings pertaining to the selected region.
