Are you interested in conducting cutting-edge research on the experiences of migrant carers in the UK? Do you have a background in archival research? Do you have experience in oral history or digital humanities methods?

Project title: Arts and Humanities Research Council project AH/W011298/1 ‘Making it to the Registers: Documenting Migrant Carers’ Experiences of Registration and Fitness to Practise.’

'Making it to the Registers'  is an interdisciplinary research collaboration between the University of Leeds and the University of Bedfordshire, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Led by Professor Marie-Andrée Jacob (PI, Leeds), Dr Priyasha Saksena (Co-I, Leeds) and Dr Nasreen Ali (Co-I, Bedfordshire), the project was conceived in collaboration with the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (BAPIO). BAPIO is an organisation with 25 years of experience in lobbying for and supporting migrant doctors and nurses from Asia and Europe to work professionally in the UK.

The project seeks to interrogate the lived dimensions of the regulation of global, migrant carers. It focuses on how professional regulation impacts the creation and maintenance of the professionalised healthcare workforce in the UK. Specifically, the project will unpack the gate-keeping functions performed by two regulatory tools, registration and fitness to practise, appraising their impact on the experiences of migrant carers, in both historical and contemporary perspectives.

Phase 1 of the project involves archival research to generate knowledge about the ways in which regulatory tools for overseas-trained healthcare workers were enacted, modified, and used by professional regulators. Phase 2 will build on archival insights to investigate current experiences of migrant healthcare workers with the systems of professional regulation in the UK through interviews conducted in collaboration with BAPIO. Phase 3 will involve the dissemination of the findings of the research through a series of user-engagement activities, including the creation of a digital archive of interviews and a digital exhibition of meaningful objects, the publication of academic articles and policy briefs, the organisation of academic symposia and public-facing activities such as sharing events with migrant healthcare workers and youth theatre.

Based at the University of Leeds, you will be working with the project team, in an open and collaborative environment supportive of your academic and career development. You will conduct archival research, interview participants, and create a digital archive of interviews. You will contribute intellectually to the development of the project, produce research outputs, and help coordinate research and outreach events.

With a PhD (or near completion) in law, humanities or social sciences, you will have experience and knowledge in oral history, archival research and/or digital humanities methods and be an excellent communicator.
