The Dutch Association for Migration Research (DAMR) is the network of migration scholars in the Netherlands. Our aim is to increase the scientific standing of migration research in the Netherlands/on migration in the Netherlands by bringing together scholars from different disciplines, creating a platform for discussions on research methodology, theory formation and societal challenges related to migration. We pay particular attention to engaging with PhD candidates and young researchers to stimulate interaction and scientific discussion.
To achieve our objectives, we actively reach out to our members in different Dutch universities. Our board consists of representatives from different universities and we seek to expand the board to get a better reach to other universities. We are therefore especially inviting new board members for Tilburg University, Wageningen University, Groningen University, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the technical universities in Delft, Twente and Eindhoven.
In your application, please include your contact details and a maximum of one page explaining 1) your motivation to join the DAMR board and 2) how you would like to contribute to DAMR as a board member with one concrete project idea or initiative.
