>The Department of Educational and Professional Studies
>at the University of Strathclyde is inviting
>applications for a 21-months full-time Research Fellow
>to work on the above project. This is an excellent
>opportunity to work on a project funded by the highly
>prestigious Economic and Social Research Council
>(ESRC). The Department has a thriving teaching and
>research culture and the appointed person will have
>opportunities to engage with other researchers doing
>work with children and young people.
>The research project
>The project aims to explore the life experiences of
>children from Eastern European countries recently
>settled in Scotland as a result of their parents'
>migration for work purposes. We will use the theories
>of social capital and social networks to inform the
>study. We plan to explore children's experiences by
>using participatory research methods, including visual
>methods, with children aged 6-14 years old of new
>Eastern European migrants. The study adopts a
>qualitative design, to include focus groups with
>children, case studies of young migrants and their
>families and interviews with adults. We will produce
>detailed accounts on children's own views and
>experiences of what is like to be a migrant child in
>Scotland. The findings are likely to generate interest
>from a wide range of organisations, including policy
>makers, national and local service providers,
>practitioners working new migrants and their families.
>The post
>We are looking for an enthusiastic researcher who is
>committed to high standards of academic work, as
>required by ESRC-funded research. It is important that
>the Research Fellow has a Masters/Ph.D. in a Social
>Science subject and/or equivalent research experience.
>Some experience of working with children/young people
>is also essential. We also expect the researcher to
>have an interest in migration research. Experience of
>reviewing academic research, writing for publication
>and presenting research findings to a wide range of
>audiences is also desirable. The post will be subject
>to an Enhanced Disclosure Scotland check.
>This full-time post is available from 1 January 2008
