The advertised position is part of a new four-years FWO/FWF funded project “Development implications of involuntary immobility”, collaboratively implemented by UGent researchers (from the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences), and researchers from the University for Continuing Education Krems, Austria.
Large numbers of young people around the world, particularly in developing countries, wish to migrate but lack the capacity to do so. This project will investigate conceptually and empirically the extent to which this phenomenon, which has been called ‘involuntary immobility’, affects human development, focusing on three dimensions: individuals’ subjective well-being and mental health, their life aspirations, and behavioural responses and alternatives for migration. The PhD candidate is expected to work and conduct research on the dynamic nexus between aspirations and behaviour triggered by involuntary immobility, focusing on youth in Senegal. The PhD candidate will further contribute to the administrative tasks of the project and conduct a PhD project that relates to and uses the data of the project.
