TheKiel Institute for the World Economy will begin a three-year project to provide policy advice and conduct related academic research on the European immigration and asylum system. The project will adopt an economic perspective and consider all stages of the migration process, including the welfare of migrants themselves, those left behind in migrants’ countries of origin, migrants’ integration in their countries of destination, and international cooperation in the provision of asylum and employment opportunities. Our flagship output will be a comprehensive annual Assessment Report, with additional, smaller publication formats targeted to specific audiences. Publications in high-quality, peer-reviewed academic journals will be crucial in documenting that our policy advice is based on sound economic research.
The successful candidate will be part of a project team of five post-doctoral researchers and several PhD students distributed across the three partner institutes.
Candidates should hold (or be close to completing) a Ph.D. with a focus on migration in economics or in a closely related field (e.g. quantitative social sciences or econometrics). They should be highly familiar with relevant empirical methods, possess an excellent academic record, and have demonstrated a strong potential to publish in high-quality, refereed journals. They should be interested in developing research that helps to solve real-world problems and in communicating their findings to stakeholders.
