Call for members for the newly established IMISCOE PhD Academy

Deadline: 1 September 2021

The newly established IMISCOE PhD Academy aims to provide targeted migration research specific training and networking opportunities for PhD students within the broad field of migration studies.

The IMISCOE PhD Academy strives to create an inclusive and diverse arena for PhD students in the broad field of migration studies, who desire to participate in an engaged program of exchange and learning, drawing on the combined strengths of the IMISCOE community. The IMISCOE PhD Academy supports the IMISCOE PhD Network – and works in close collaboration with the IMISCOE PhD Network.

The value-added of the Academy, comes through maximizing the potential of synergies which lie within the IMISCOE network today. This means that the IMISCOE conferences, PhD summer (or winter) schools organised by IMISCOE member institutes, the PhD oriented activities of Standing Committees, and the work of the PhD Network, together contribute toward the Academy’s success, allowing the most interested and engaged PhD students a unique arena to develop, thrive, and be adequately supported in tailored ways.

More information about the Academy, including who can become a member, what it means to be a member, and details of the process of applying can be found at the bottom of the page.

The IMISCOE PhD Academy is complementary to the PhD programs and schools which Doctoral candidates are enrolled in at their grant-giving institutions. The IMISCOE PhD Academy fills a gap in PhD training by offering targeted migration research related training and workshops on – among other, publishing, career development, applying for grants, post-PhD-life considerations, and networking. These needs have – time and time again – been identified by the IMISCOE PhD community itself.

In the face of climate consciousness and changed mobility preferences in the post-pandemic world, the IMISCOE PhD Academy will offer most of its activities online, but have one annual face-to-face meeting point among Academy members, in conjunction with the annual IMISCOE summer conference.

The first cohort of Academy members will meet virtually for bi-monthly activities, launch of the annual IMISCOE PhD day (online), and an in-person event in conjunction with the IMISCOE conference in Oslo in 2022. Academy members will be encouraged to participate in Standing Committee and Anti-Racism working group activities throughout their membership period.

Apply to become a member of the IMISCOE PhD Academy today!

The deadline for applications is 1 September 2021 – and the outcome of the selection process will be announced by 30 September 2021.
