We are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to help support a European Research Council funded project, Topological Atlas: Mapping Contemporary Borderscapes (TopATLAS). The project is focused on the investigation of border sites across three countries: Pakistan, Turkey and UK. It involves working with researchers from all three countries, as well as with a range of collaborators including NGOs, lawyers, artists and arts organisations. 

The post holder’s main responsibility will be WP5 Topological Maps, but they will also be expected to contribute towards the project fieldwork and any related administrative duties. The post involves conducting desk based research into the security and surveillance technologies deployed at the borders under study and design based research into creating visualisations of how these borders function. The post holder will work in collaboration with the research team to produce spatial analyses of the legal, bureaucratic and security regimes at borders, as well as producing visual representations of the border based on qualitative interviews conducted with migrants and refugees.
