Postdoc researchers for new project on transoceanic fishers

The Christian Michelsen Institute, based in Bergen (Norway), is currently looking for three postdoc researchers as part of a new project. “Transoceanic Fishers: Multiple Mobilities in and out of the South China Sea (TransOcean)” is funded by the European Reserach Council and led by Senior Researcher Edyta Roszko.

Applicants should have a background in socio-cultural anthropology, human geography or a related discipline. Moreover, they should have some expertise in the Pacific, Africa, and China. The successful candidates will have an opportunity to develop their sub-projects, conduct ethnographic field research, contribute to spatial analysis, publications, as well as seminars, workshops and conferences.

Two of the postdoc positions involve extensive research in East or West Africa. Starting date for all positions is 1 February 2021, although this may be postponed until no later than 1 September 2021 due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
