The Department of Sociology at Trinity College Dublin is looking for an outstanding and highly motivated PhD candidate with excellent qualifications and methodological skills to study how digital engagement impacts children’s daily routines and well-being across demographic and socioeconomic groups by analysing longitudinal data. Under the supervision of Dr Pablo Gracia, the successful applicant will join the DIGYMATEX project, a multi-disciplinary consortium of 12 international partners funded by the European Commission (Horizon 2020).
The Department of Sociology at Trinity College Dublin is seeking to appoint a highly motivated and outstanding doctoral researcher for a period of 4 full years (48 months). The doctoral candidate will conduct an innovative PhD project that will investigate the effectiveness of Irish employment services in enabling the employment of immigrants and alleviating their risk of long-term unemployment. There is very little academic research on immigrants' interaction with employment services in the European context. Ireland is an interesting case given the high levels of immigration witnessed since the early 2000s and the disproportionately negative effect of recent economic crises on immigrant employment levels. The project will analyse public policy on the employment of migrant workers between 2010 and 2020 and collect data using (a selection of) the following research methodologies: the analysis of secondary survey and administrative data; collection of survey data from foreign and Irish born residents using employment services; and qualitative interviews with service providers and immigrant users.
