Opportunities for Ukrainian Researchers in Austria

30 March, 2022

Call for Applications by Ukrainian Scholars

Scholars and scientists directly affected by the war in Ukraine can be included in ongoing FWF research projects throughout Austria with immediate effect through an expedited application process. We are looking for applications by Ukranian scholars who have fled to Austria and who hold expertise in one or more of the following areas: migration policy and politics, religion and politics, political theory of migration, morality policy and politics, border externalization and human rights. Both pre- and post-doc researchers are welcome to apply.

A fully funded contract is offeretd to work for up to one year in the project Migration as Morality Politics: The Contentious Politics of Sanctuary in Europe and the United States. The project analyzes normative conflicts and ethical dilemmas that arise in connection with migration policies and politics. It focuses in particular on political conflicts related to “sanctuary,” and investigates three types of sanctuary practices: church asylum, sanctuary cities, and search-and-rescue operations on the border.
