Project Overview

ICMPD is inviting all interested candidates to apply for the position of Associate Researcher for the projects FIMAS+INTEGRATION 2 and CROSSMIGRATION.

The overall objective of the FIMAS projects is to establish a longitudinal survey on the social position of refugees in Austria, and on facilitators of and possible barriers to successful labour market integration. Based on cross-sectional and longitudinal data analyses, we present findings to stakeholders and the public, nationally and internationally. The current project is led by ICMPD and implemented in cooperation with the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (wiiw), the University of Graz, the Vienna University of Economics and Business, and the AMS Austria. The current, third wave of data collection will start in October 2018. The project ends in April 2019.

The H2020-funded project CROSSMIGRATION aims at establishing an interactive online migration research hub for European stakeholders and scholars to facilitate the access to and overview of knowledge and data on migration related issues. The research hub will also feature synthesis studies on key migration questions and on cross-national knowledge regarding migration drivers, infrastructures, flows and policies. ICMPD together with CEMIS (University of Antwerp) is responsible for Work Package 3 and thus the database, which will go public on 31 December 2018. The overall project consortium includes 15 leading migration research institutes from across Europe.
