Graduate Research Assistantship in Politics and Mathematics – Analysis
of Migrant Organisational Networks in Europe
The Leicester Migration Network in collaboration with the Department of Politics and International Relations and the Department of Mathematics is pleased to offer a funded Graduate Research Assistantship for September 2015 entry to its Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme. The closing date for receipt of applications is 19 April 2015.
This Graduate Research Assistantship is available for full-time registration. The successful applicant will receive a full UK/EU tuition fee waiver for four years subject to annual progress review.
The successful applicant will receive an annual stipend of £9,901 and salary of approximately £4,156. The successful applicant will also have access to a Research Training Support Grant worth £750 each year to help cover costs associated with their research work.
The Graduate Research Assistant will be responsible both to the main supervisor (Professor Laura Morales) and the Leicester Migration Network coordinators (Dr Leah Bassel and Dr Marc Scully). They will be expected to undertake research-related duties within the Department of Politics and International Relations and the Leicester Migration Network – not normally exceeding eight hours per week – while undertaking research leading to a PhD.
Approximately 80% of their time will be spent on their doctoral research and 20% on their GRA responsibilities. Training is provided to help Graduate Research Assistants develop their research related skills and enhance their professional competencies. The Graduate Research Assistant will also be allocated shared office space within the Department of Politics and International Relations.
This Graduate Research Assistantship is open to applicants wishing to pursue doctoral research on the *Analysis of Migrant Organisational Networks in Europe*. The successful applicant will be based in the Department of Politics and International Relations under the supervision of Professor Laura Morales <https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/politics/people/lmorales> (Politics and International Relations) and Professor Alexander Gorban <https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/mathematics/extranet/staff-material/staff-profiles/ag153>
The doctoral project would draw from the vast amount of network information available – and currently under-analyzed – of the FP6 project Localmultidem <http://www.um.es/localmultidem> led by Professor Morales and completed in 2009. That project led to a large number of outcomes based on a survey undertaken to representative samples of individuals of both migrant and autochthonous/majority populations in 10 European cities (Barcelona, Budapest, Geneva, London, Lyon, Madrid, Milan, Oslo, Stockholm, and Zurich). However, another major component of that project was a survey undertaken with the representatives of the civil society organisations of all the migrant groups studied in all these cities (except Oslo), plus Murcia (Spain). This survey enquired about the multiple connections, collaborations and joint activities undertaken by the migrant organisations interviewed both with other migrant organisations and with autochthonous/majority population organisations in their respective cities. The result is a very rich dataset on organisational connections and fields that can be analysed from many different empirical and theoretical perspectives.
The successful applicant will join the Leicester Migration Network actively, as well as other initiatives through the Parties, Participation, and Public Opinion Research Cluster <http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/politics/research/research-clusters/3PO>
and the Leicester Inter-Disciplinary Workshop on Elections, Public Opinion, Participation, and Parties <http://www2.le.ac.uk/projects/liwepop/elections-public-opinion-participation-and-parties>.
This Graduate Research Assistantship will be of particular interest to those who hold a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Maths (STEM) undergraduate degree and can show an interest – as indicated by a specialisation in the Masters degree and dissertation – in the areas of migration, associations, and/or political participation. Applicants who hold an undergraduate degree in a social science subject but can show postgraduate-level training in mathematics and/or computer sciences will also be considered.
