The researcher is expected to work in conjunction with the other researchers affiliated to the consortium and to conduct anthropologically oriented fieldwork, focus groups and a cartography of the existing initiatives at a Belgian level. On the basis of her/his research, the successful candidate is expected to complete a PhD research, participate in a number of (inter)national conferences and publish in academic peer reviewed journals.
