The tourism sector in France has been directly and significantly affected by to the COVID19 health crisis and the subsequent global economic crisis is going to be even more serious. While numerous support and recovery plans have been put forward by the Government as the crisis has unfolded, the sector will need to reinvent itself and adapt its products, practices and destinations to satisfy newly imposed health and safety standards in the short term and also prepare for the future in light of probable structural changes in tourist behaviour. These changes will obviously vary depending on the impact of the situation, but the current health and economic crises may in fact be seen as a way of accelerating the changes which have already been partly instigated in recent years (take for example the use of digital technology in the processes of selling and buying tourism and leisure services). This directly concerns vocational training in the broadest sense, being a necessary 'link' to implement these changes. To what extent could such a role help attenuate the social consequences of this employment crisis by promoting the development and conversion of skills required for work in these rapidly-changing tourism roles? Will the economic crisis which follows on from the health crisis provide an opportunity to strengthen the adoption of training and thereby push forward changes in employment and the development of skills or, on the contrary, will training simply be a variable facilitating such changes? Funded by DARES and supported by LISE-CNRS, this research project aims to evaluate the impact of the health crisis on such changes in terms of skills and vocational training.
The chosen research fellow will be part of a team studying 'the impacts of the health crisis on skills and vocational training in the tourism and leisure sector'. They will work on the development and monitoring of a range of surveys sent out to training stakeholders. They will work with the team on preparing the format of the interviews, conducting them and coordinating the entire interview campaign. They will also be in charge of statistical processing using data from DEFIS/Enquête Emploi (Employment Survey) in conjunction with the rest of the team. Lastly, they will participate in writing up a summary document and a scientifically-focused article to explain the findings.
Description of your responsibilities, with details given if this is an interdisciplinary profile
Example of articles expected:
The research fellow will contribute specifically to these projects:
• the study/analysis of interviews with stakeholders in the vocational training sector,
• the development and monitoring of the range of surveys used,
• the roll out and analysis of the interviews,
• the coordination of the interview campaign strategy (identifying contacts, monitoring the feedback etc.),
• The subsequent management of DEFIS/Enquête Emploi data,
• The writing up of a summary document,
• The collaborative publication of one or more academic articles.
As a doctor in sociology, the candidate should demonstrate their skills in:

LISE is an interdisciplinary laboratory for economic sociology, and a research unit jointly coordinated by CNRS and CNAM. It is today co-directed by Christian Azaïs and Corinne Gaudart, taking over from Olivier Giraud (2014-2018) and Léa Lima (2014-2018) who themselves followed on from Isabelle Berrebi-Hoffmann ( 2009-2013) and Michel Lallement (2004-2009). Founded in 2004 to focus on sociology related to work and companies, as well as how sociology impacts on business, the laboratory quickly developed recognition for its work in the field of sociology in the context of social solidarity and the unconventional political sociology of the economy. Significantly, the laboratory combines resources from a number of well-respected national and international research centres on subjects such as social work, the social and solidarity economy, professional relationships as well as gender and discrimination. Although sociology is the central focus for the laboratory, it draws on the experience provided by researchers from other disciplines: economics, human resources management, ergonomics, law, political science and history.
This means there are almost 140 research fellows and doctoral students specialising in social sciences who are able to share their disciplinary, methodological and theoretical knowledge. They can therefore analyse and explain the changes seen in social relations and the ways in which they are institutionalised in contexts which question the role of individual identities, social affiliations and the effect of citizenship, whether this be in relation to work and employment or a diverse range of social protection strategies. LISE researchers carry out their projects in a highly comparative and/or international context (in particular with Germany, Italy, North-African counties, South-American countries, Canada and Quebec etc.) using qualitative or quantitative empirical surveys. The laboratory is located at CNAM in the 3rd district of Paris.
