The ESRC and AHRC are pleased to invite proposals for a Migration Leadership Team to provide intellectual leadership for, and maximise the impact of, their combined migration research portfolio.
This is a complex and wide-ranging portfolio, and we anticipate that the appointment will involve a collaboration of two or more individuals bringing complementary senior level expertise in this area. The team will play a vital role in:
- providing strategic and intellectual leadership over ESRC and AHRC’s existing migration research portfolio: mapping, curating and synthesising the portfolio in ways that should maximise potential impact on policy agendas, identifying synergies between existing investments and strategic gaps to support the development of a cohesive portfolio
- liaising with academics working in this and related fields, connecting and communicating with users, generating evidence and maximising the impact of the portfolio’s policy agenda through engagement with a range of policymakers and stakeholders both in the UK and internationally
- establishing and exploiting connections with other major migration research programmes and activities in Europe, in the developing world, and elsewhere
- identifying and advising on opportunities to develop the portfolio through future interdisciplinary activities including international collaboration under the broad theme of migration.
Applications must be submitted through the Je-S system by 16:00 on 8 August 2017.
