Research Training at the Glasgow Refugee Migration Network
20 - 23 May 2017, Glasgow University

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an outstanding PhD student who is researching within one or more areas of migration, refugees and asylum seekers to attend a training course for PhD candidates run by the Glasgow, Refugee and Migration Network (GRAMNet) based out of the University of Glasgow.

The training course runs 20 – 23 May 2017 although the visit will include a number of days in Glasgow networking with HDRs and GRAMNet staff engaged with research on migration, refugees and asylum seekers.

The four day  training course hosted by GRAMNet will be held at Camas, part of the Iona Community.  This is a Christian ecumenical community, and as such it welcomes all faiths, including non-believers. The trip to Camas is in no way linked to any particular religion or religious practice, rather it has a focus on social justice, peace and caring for the self, for each other, and for the environment. Daily moments of collective reflection and sharing of thoughts are encouraged, but this can take any expression each individual chooses (including non participation). 
All food is vegetarian and it can accommodate other dietary needs.

The travel/training grant will be administered through The Hawke-EU Centre for Mobilities, Migrations and Cultural Transformations which has been partnering with GRAMNet. The Hawke-EU Centre hosted GRAMNet’s convener, Prof Alison Phipps, as Thinker-in-Residence in October-November 2016 around migration, refugees and asylum seekers.

The Hawke EU Centre grant will cover the costs for travel/accommodation/meals and the training fees.


The PhD candidate requirements are as follows: 

  • Engaged directly with research around migration, refugees and asylum seekers
  • Research proposal accepted
  • Willing and available to travel to Glasgow for 7-10 days around the 20-23 May period.
  •  Recommendation from Principal Supervisor
