Are you interested in working for one of Europe's leading research universities? Do you specialise in the field of race, gender, and migration studies?
The Department of Anthropology is one of the departments in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. We are seeking three postdoctoral researchers for the CHINAWHITE project, which is funded by the European Research Council and led by dr. Shanshan Lan. As a postdoctoral researcher, you will be part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) programme group Moving Matters.
The Reconfiguration of Whiteness in China is a long term research project which examines the multiple and contradictory constructions of whiteness in China as a result of the rapid diversification of white migrants in the country and the shifting power balances between China and the West. The research includes three postdoctoral projects:
The postdoctoral period includes at least twelve months of fieldwork in China. For the remainder of the employment period, the fellow is expected to live in Amsterdam and take active part in the research environment at the AISSR.
The postdoctoral research projects will constitute a significant component of the overall project, and the parameters of data collection and analysis are therefore largely determined by the overall project design. In addition to conducting fieldwork for an individual case, the postdoctoral fellow is expected to contribute to the analysis of the larger project, publish independently, and, together with other project team members, present research papers at international workshops and conferences, contribute to popular dissemination of the research results, and undertake administrative tasks related to the project, such as organizing workshops, seminars, policy dialogues, or maintaining the programme’s website.
What can we offer you?
A challenging work environment with a variety of duties and ample scope for individual initiative and development within an inspiring organisation. The social and behavioural sciences play a leading role in addressing the major societal challenges faced by the world, the Netherlands and Amsterdam, now and in the future.
To work at the University of Amsterdam is to work in a discerning, independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
