Research Groups & Initiatives

As part of its education concept, BIGSSS supports early scientific independence of its fellows. This includes supporting fellows in organizing in a bottom-up fashion their own events and research groups which meet their specific interests and at the same time enable them to build up professional networks.

In spring 2016, BIGSSS fellows established a working group "migration and refugee studies" with the aim to bring together fellows from all fields and disciplines to discuss (their own) research related to this topic.

BIGSSS' Career Development Team is another working group in which our fellows organize transferable skill coursed to support their career and research. The team also collects and spreads information on funding, job postings, and other opportunities.
