Job opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Associate to join Oecumene team

By Lisa Pilgram · 24 April 2012

We are delighted to announce that Oecumene is recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Associate (duration 18 months starting 1 October 2012).

We are looking for a motivated graduate with a PhD in social sciences background to join the existing research team of 4 Research Associates and 3 PhD students.

The purpose of the Oecumene project is to redefine European citizenship by developing, without the assumptions of orientalism and occidentalism, comparative insights on citizenship understood as political subjectivity in Africa, Asia, Australia or the Americas. Expertise in any one of these areas is required but applicants with a focus on Africa especially in relation to indigenous citizenship would be beneficial.

The application deadline has now passed.
