EU Border Care

EU BORDER CARE is Recruiting

I am advertising two Postdoc positions to work on my ERC-funded research project EU Border Care. The Postdocs will be based at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute.

The project entitled ‘Intimate Encounters in EU Borderlands: Migrant Maternity, Sovereignty and the Politics of Care on Europe’s Peripheries (EU Border Care)’ is a comparative anthropological study of maternity care delivery towards undocumented pregnant migrants in EU Borderlands. Research will be carried out in 7 maternity care services located in the densely crossed borderlands of 4 EU Member States. Most of the maternity care services in question are in the Mediterranean, in Italy, Spain and Greece, but two field sites are also located in Overseas France, in French Guiana and Mayotte (in South America and in the Indian Ocean respectively).

The Postdocs will be required to focus each on one of the following 2 EU Member States: Greece and France, and to collaborate with fellow team members on dissemination through publications and audio-visual projects.

Conditions and details of the contracts can be found on the EUI vacancy page.
