The post-doctoral researcher recruited in the framework of the European project Norface CrimScapes (the French part of which is financed by the ANR under the scientific coordination of Mathilde Darley) will have a solid scientific expertise on the different forms of restriction of access to rights of undocumented migrants. He/she will also have linguistic skills and research experience that will enable him/her to conduct ethnographic surveys in France and Germany on the issue of criminalization of assistance to migrants.

- carrying out a survey on the criminalization of assistance to migrants in France (French-Italian border) and Germany (Dresden): an excellent knowledge of the issue of access to foreigners' rights and its restrictions will be a determining criterion for recruitment.
- designing an appropriate (preferably ethnographic) methodological approach
- analyzing the empirical materials collected and putting them into perspective with the available literature.
- writing a research report in English
- participating in the results' dissemination (publications, conferences, teaching...)
- ensuring a scientific and methodological monitoring of the object and methods concerned by the survey
- taking part in the scientific life of the Cesdip and the CrimScapes program
- contributing to the organization and realization of scientific operations in the field


- Doctorate in sociology or political science
- International research experience
- Skills in ethnographic survey methods
- Solid knowledge of the academic field of the sociology of migration
- Fluent command of English, German and French (level C1), attested by international scientific contributions

- Ability to work in a team
- Willingness to travel in France and Germany in particular

Work Context

The CrimScapes project explores the growing application of criminal law, crime control measures and imaginaries of (il)legality. It seeks to grasp analytically the motivations, challenges and implications of criminalization for the various actors and practices that (re)shape the different landscapes of criminalization and their entanglement (CrimScapes). Using a variety of materials (archives, secondary literature, surveys and interviews), the project members will develop the genealogical timelines (CrimeLines) of seven European 'Crimscapes' (drug use, migration, sex work, surrogacy, prison context, LGBT identities and hate speech).
The post-doctoral researcher of the French team will work specifically on the issue of the criminalization of assistance to migrants in France and Germany. The position, based at Cesdip (Centre de recherches sociologiques sur le droit et les institutions pénales - UMR 8183, Guyancourt), therefore involves frequent travel to Germany and France (notably the French-Italian border), both for meetings of the project team and for carrying out field investigations.
It also includes:
- Insertion in a research institute recognized for its work in the sociology of law and in the sociology of migration
- Insertion in an international research collective
- Active participation in the scientific life of the Cesdip (research seminars, workshops, etc.) and in the CrimScapes program.
