We are seeking to recruit two post-doctoral fellows to join African Centre for Migration & Society (ACMS), Wits University. The fellowships are part of the Migration and Health Project Southern Africa (maHp) which aims to explore (and evaluate) ways to generate and communicate knowledge in order to improve responses to migration, health and wellbeing in the SADC region. Multiple disciplinary perspectives, mixed method approaches, and the involvement of various stakeholders – including migrants themselves – are central. Central areas of investigation link to issues of public health responses to migration; migration, labour and health; migration and health policy making; gender, health, sexuality and migration. Starting in January 2020 (negotiable), the successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary team of scholars exploring health and migration in southern Africa. With a home base in Johannesburg, post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to develop and participate in projects across the region.
The postdocs will work with Associate Professor Jo Vearey in two research projects exploring migration, gender and health systems in South Africa.
