The Department of Anthropology, one of the Departments in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (FMG) , is looking for three PhD candidates who will participate in the research project 'Global future health: a multi-sited ethnography of an adaptive intervention' (FutureHealth), which is funded through a European Research Council Starting Grant.
The research project is a multi-sited ethnography of an emergent global health intervention to improve nutrition in the first 1000 days of life. We will study how the intervention is designed and then variously adapted as it is implemented in different sites. The project will draw on and combine research repertoires from various anthropological subfields – ranging from medical anthropology, science ethnography, environmental anthropology, development studies, and political/legal anthropology. The aim is to study the social life of a maternal-child nutrition initiative while adding insight into the question of how anthropologists work with, alongside, and at times in contrast to other fields.
We are seeking candidates to carry out in-country ethnography of the intervention in one of three national sites (Guatemala, the Netherlands, the Philippines).
Candidates will have the following credentials:
The full-time appointments will be for a period of four years (12 months plus a further 36 months contingent on a satisfactory performance during the first year), starting after 1 June 2018.
The gross monthly salary will range from €2,222 in the first year to €2,840 in the final year, based on a full-time position of 38 hours per week, plus 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of- year allowance, in conformity with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
