Job Opportunity: Research Officer with the Irish RAXEN National Focal Point

January 27, 2010 Leave a comment

The Irish RAXEN National Focal Point (NFP) for RAXEN Europe has sent us a notice that it is currently seeking a Research Officer for a position of up to one-year to join the NFP team of academics and researchers involved in conducting research on the following three discrete and short projects:

  1. The Situation of Asylum Seekers: Asylum Procedures and the Right to Work
  2. Racist and Related Hate Crimes in the EU
  3. A complimentary data collection report on issues relating to racism, xenophobia and related intolerances

The research officer position provides a great opportunity to expand qualitative research and statistical skills, and work with a team of academics, researchers and activists in the area of equality, human rights and social justice.

Since 2000, the European Union (EU) Fundamental Rights Agency (formerly the EU Monitoring Centre on Racism, Xenophobia and related Intolerances) has been collecting data on racism, xenophobia and related intolerances through its RAXEN National Focal Points (NFPs) based in each EU Member State. Information provided by the NFPs covers the areas of legislation, racist violence/crime, employment, education, housing, as well as health and is primarily used to develop in-house European-wide comparative analyses. More information is available here.

The Irish RAXEN NFP is a consortium project led by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL) in partnership with the School for Social Justice, University College Dublin. Communications for the project are managed by the Immigrant Council of Ireland (ICI).  Previously, the National Consultative Committee on Racism and Interculturalism (NCCRI) performed the functions of the Irish NFP until its closure in 2008.

More information on the job spec, conditions and how to make an application are available after the jump.
