British Red Cross: Service Co-ordinator - International Family Tracing Service West Yorkshire

University of Salford, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work: PhD studentship

Roma Voice Project: Community Coordinator; Community Inclusion Advocates



Job title: PhD studentship
Organisation: University of Salford, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work
Closing date: 02 February 2015

Summary:

New immigrants and integration: northern stories

PhD studentship. Supervisor: Prof Philip Brown

Diversity characterises both white majority and minority ethnic communities in the UK. Intercommunal conflict and new waves of migration continually spark concern about social cohesion, but little is known about how new arrivals interact with residents of settled communities. Studies of asylum seeking and labour market recruitment have been largely separately pursued, research on irregular migration remains underdeveloped, and research on international students is largely absent. Government policies for social inclusion through employment and urban regeneration are only loosely related to those for building social capital and civic participation; community studies have focused mainly on gender, family and kinship. We continue to see gaps in knowledge about the experiences of new immigrants in different categories, their social and economic impacts, the success of projects for their integration, and the relationship between all these factors. These are issues of concern to the UK generally but particularly within northern areas of the UK which are often some of the most diverse environments in the country.

We welcome proposals for projects which seek to take an intercultural perspective to integration in the UK focussed specifically on areas within the North of England [for example, Greater Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield etc]. The key questions that we would seek to address are:

  1. How do these interactions 'play out' in everyday economic, social and civic situations?
  2. How do they change over time, with what consequences for identities and behaviour of all participants?
  3. How does immigration status affect identities, behaviour and interactions with settled communities?
  4. What impacts do key institutions, agencies and individuals have on interactions, behaviours and identities?

This PhD student will become an active member of the research team at the Sustainable Housing & Urban Studies Unit [SHUSU] at the University of Salford and also has the opportunity to be co-located within Migration Yorkshire in Leeds City Council.

Eligibility

Only UK/EU candidates are eligible to apply. Candidates should have a first or upper second class honours degree and/or Masters degree.
