Lund University, The Department of Political Science

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Social Sciences at Lund University is one of the leading education and research institutions in Sweden and operates both in Lund and Helsingborg.

The Department of Political Science combines ancient traditions with modern research and education. The department safeguards disciplinary breadth and diversity and has long been successful in competition for external research funding. Key research fields include democracy and democratisation, power and administration, diplomacy, peace and conflict, globalisation, political psychology, gender, environmental policy and welfare. The strong research profile of the Department of Political Science is reflected in its teaching. The educational environment has long been strongly international.

Sara Kalm and Johannes Lindvall, together with Frida Boräng (Gothenburg University) want to hire a research assistant to their project Migration and the welfare state in historical and comparative perspective.

The tasks consist in compiling historical data on migration policy, and inspecting already compiled data on the same theme.

A curious attitude and ability to work with quantitative data are important, but a formal statistical education is not necessary. Some education in political science, or equivalent, is required, as is an excellent knowledge of English. Knowledge of other languages, such as French, German and/or Italian is a merit.
