    PhD grant for research on “Transnational Health Practices in an Enlarged Europe”

    Given the increasing salience of East-West migration following the last two waves of European integration, we are currently developing a new research programme on “Transnational Health Practices in an Enlarged Europe”. The project will try to asses the transnational dimension of the current health seeking practices of Eastern European immigrants in Ireland. It will highlight practices which lead migrants out of the health services of the host country and into their transnational families, networks, communities, as well as the health services of their country of origin.

    We are looking for a PhD student willing to conduct doctoral research under the umbrella of our research programme. We are currently developing research on Romanian migrants in Ireland and are seeking a researcher able to engage in the study of one of the other Easter European migrant groups relevant to Ireland (Polish, Estonian, Lithuanian, Latvian, etc.).

    The successful candidate will have the following qualifications:

    – MA in Social Sciences (especially Sociology or Anthropology) or equivalent
    – Knowledge of a relevant Eastern European language (Polish, Estonian, Lithuanian, Latvian, etc.)

    The researcher will be registered as a full-time PhD student at DCU and will conduct fieldwork in the relevant Eastern European country during the second year of the PhD. The PhD will be conducted under the supervision of Dr. Sabina Stan, Anthropologist and Lecturer in Sociology at the School of Nursing in DCU.

    The successful candidate will receive a grant of 34.000 euros. The student will be supported in applying for tuition fees remission, as well as for additional funding at relevant funding bodies (SoN, DCU, RIA, IRCHSS, HRB, etc.).

    Interested candidates should send before the 1st of May 2009, a letter of intent, a CV, two reference letters and a 500 word research proposal to

    Dr. Sabina Stan
    School of Nursing
    Dublin City University
