The Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute invites applications for 3 PhD positions as part of the European Research Council (CoG) funded project MYMOVE: Migrant youth mobility in Europe: patterns, processes and consequences.
Children of migrant origin are more likely to move within the country of settlement than native born youth, however little is known on the potential effects of this so-called internal mobility. When does childhood internal mobility have negative consequences on an individual’s life? Are there differences in processes and consequences for those of immigrant and non-immigrant background? The main objective of the MYMOVE project is to advance knowledge on the relationship between moving within a country during childhood and adult life chances as defined by demographic family life choices, health and well-being for those with and without immigrant background. The MYMOVE project will make use of unique and new longitudinal (full-) population register data from across Europe
The PhD positions are part of the Consolidator Grant awarded to prof. dr. Helga de Valk and funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The PhD students will join the MYMOVE research team at NIDI and are expected to be interested and willing to spend part of the research time in the Nordic countries involved in the study to collaborate with experts on register data in these countries. The research team currently consists of the PI (de Valk), two postdocs, one PhD students and support staff. At this stage we are recruiting three PhD candidates who will focus on the broad themes of internal mobility and later life outcomes among refugee children and the role of the family for children’s short and long term consequences of internal mobility. All projects take a comparative perspective by either studying different (origin) groups, different countries or different outcomes.
Candidates should have:
The candidate is expected to start by 1 September 2020. The initial appointment will be for a period of 1 year. After positive evaluation, the appointment will be extended for another 3 years. A psychological assessment can be part of the selection procedure.
The gross monthly salary will be in line with the Dutch regulations for academic staff at the PhD level. Benefits include pension contribution, annual holiday premium of 8% and an end-of-year premium of 8.3%.
