Research Fellow – Irregular Migration, CERC in Migration and Integration, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. Deadline: 25 April 2022.
The Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration at Ryerson University invites applications of interest from post-doctoral and more senior research fellows who work in the wider field of irregular migration. This position is offered in close connection with several multi-year international research projects on irregular migration.
The Fellow will conduct research on areas of irregular migration in Canada and in comparative perspective with Europe and North America, including entry, stay, work and other dimensions, pathways between regularity and irregularity, lived experiences of migrants, policy analysis, and methods to estimate irregular migration.
CERC Migration offers an opportunity to pursue new research, develop leadership potential, and collaborate internationally working as part of a research team, headed by Professor Anna Triandafyllidou, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration, at Ryerson University.
Les mots de la diversite / The language of diversity, Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) in Migration and Integration, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada, February 14, 2022, 12-1:30 PM EST, Online via zoom.
The organizers invite you to join a discussion on the power of language. A panel of experts will investigate how various expressions used in migration and urban studies are produced and used differently in discrete cultural and national contexts – in Canada and France in particular, but also in Arab countries. They will explore notions such as diversity, laïcité, multiculturalism, integration, assimilation, cosmopolitanism, with a view to understand their socio-historical contexts and the difficulty of translating, interpreting and communicating them in other languages and contexts. While considering the multitude of expressions used in diverse cultural contexts, they will also explore the power relations that underlie the different categorization politics deployed in urban and migration dynamics.
Register to receive an update closer to the day of the event on how you may participate. Presentations to be delivered in French, with simultaneous translation in English available online.

Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada) announces The Global Challenge. Your international stage to create social change. Deadline: 22 January 2018.
What is the Global Challenge? An opportunity to embody your passion and drive social change! Unlike your typical, solutions-driven business and pitch competition, Ryerson’s 2nd annual Global Challenge focuses on deeply understanding the context of a social problem. The Global Challenge is your chance to analyze and demonstrate your understanding of the local, national and international issues that you care about.
No solution? No problem. By working in teams or individually, you will dive into the ethos of a problem, map the landscape, identify opportunities and gaps before presenting your findings and solutions to others; with the hope of moving on to additional stages at a national and international level. Tackling social issues is no easy task, but understanding the broader context and complexity of an issue encourages mass participation, informs business ventures and long-term solutions.
Which social issue will you explore? #ChallengeAccepted
What kind of problems? Any local or global social issue you are passionate about! If you’re lost for ideas, we recommend taking a look at some of last year’s finalists, discussing topics with friends, family or reaching out to our coordination team.
