Researcher Profile: Dr Carlos Uxo
Project Title: Latin American migrants in Australia
Brief description of the research project: This is a collaborative research project led by myself and Ass. Prof. Dharmalingam Arunachalam (Sociology, Monash), in which we already have two research assistants, and for which we have received seed funding from the Faculty. We are analysing demographic patterns in Latin American migration to Australia. We have started with a pilot project (Cuban migration), which will be expanded to Latin American migration. In February 2017 we will be seeking further funding from COALAR (Council of Australia-Latin America relations).
Position description/Role of intern: Research Assistant
Key duties/deliverables: At present we have a research assistant sourcing articles and books written in Englisk on the topic. However, we need a Spanish speaker to carry out similar work with sources written in Spanish. The student taking the Internship will deliver a bibliography and a lit review (in English) under our guidance. S/he will also be asked to liaise with Latin American organizations in Victoria in order to create a list of resource, and services available to Latin American immigrants in Australia. Both will be extremely useful in the preparation of our COALAR grant application, to be submitted at the end of February 2017.
Any special requirements: Intern needs to have an excellent level of Spanish
