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 WP3 Legal Geography at the Border, but they will also be expected to contribute towards the project fieldwork and any related administrative duties. The post involves identification of and close analysis of legal cases and a thorough investigation of the overlapping jurisdictions and bureaucracies operating at the borders under study. The post holder will also work in collaboration with the research team to analyse the legal and spatial implications of the various technologies of surveillance and securitisation operating at the borders in question.
