Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in World Christianities and their Diaspora in a European Context

Applications are invited for a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in World Christianities and their Diaspora in a European Context. The proposed focus of research should address pressing matters of social integration, citizenship, post-colonialism and the changing nature of World Christianities. It will identify how religion helps migrants establish new lives in Europe and how religious and other institutions are changed through their encounter with migrant communities.

We would welcome applications from sociologists, social anthropologists or social and cultural historians. This post would particularly suit applicants whose doctoral work has focused on the Global South, and who are interested in investigating the movement of such populations into Western Europe. An application should be accompanied by a short statement of proposed research.
