Exciting vacancy at IRiS!

bhamcampusIRiS was established as a cross-University of Birmingham institute in 2012 and has quickly gained ground and recognition to become one of the world’s leading institutes for the interdisciplinary study of superdiversity, migration and displacement. Birmingham, as one of the largest and most diverse cities in Europe, provides the ideal location for research both at national level and within international comparative studies.

Our aim is to set the research and policy agenda around superdiversity; develop new theories and methods to explain emergent, ongoing and evolving demographic complexity; understand diversity and migration in the context of global macro political changes; and contribute to policy development at different levels.

The post holder is expected to have an established international reputation through significant original research work and publications in the area of ethnic and migration studies, a clear record of academic and policy impact related to their work and research grant capture.

Through their publication track record and publication plan, the post holder should demonstrate academic leadership and ability to deliver 4* REF-able outputs in the area of ethnic and migration studies. Expertise in one of these four areas is highly desirable: social inequality and diversity, forced displacement and migration from a Global South perspective, social theory around diversity, migration, diaspora and transnationalism. Evidence of research in non-EU immigration contexts and research-based teaching is desirable.
