Job announcement: “Reproducing Europe”

With apologies for cross-posting, but the positions
described below by Anouk de Koning may be of
particular interest to ASAP members and friends.
I am advertising three PhD-positions and two Postdoc positions in my research project Reproducing Europe. Especially the Postdoc positions, with their anthropology of policy focus, may be of interest to you. The project is located in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

‘Reproducing Europe: Migrant Parenting and Contested Citizenship’ is a five-year research project financed by the European Research Council (2015-2020) and led by me. The project examines how everyday citizenship is debated, produced and negotiated in a Europe where migrants are increasingly seen as a burden or threat. It examines these negotiations of citizenship through a study of debates, interventions and practices related to migrant parenting in Paris, Milan and Amsterdam. The experiences of Egyptian migrant parents – a relatively new North African and (partly) Muslim migrant group – serve as its vantage point.The research will be carried out by a project team consisting of six researchers who will work in these three cities. It relies on close cooperation between the various researchers. The team will work together to further elaborate and refine the research approach and the various subprojects and will also co-author a number of publications.Postdoc positions for anthropology of policy research in Milan and Paris:
