The 21st IMISCOE conference is approaching and it will take place in Lisbon on 2-5 July 2024, at ISCTE. This international event will gather students, researchers, and practitioners in the area of transnational migration under the title: Migration as a Social Construction: A Reflexive Turn.

The Organizing Committee of CIES-Iscte, are looking for Junior Researchers, PhD and MA students who would like to collaborate in the organization of this event. The volunteers, will be part of the team, and focus on helping and facilitating the overall experience of the participants in the conference. The team expects volunteers to follow the Organizing Committee’s protocols and develop assigned duties with concern and responsibility, as well as treating participants and other volunteers with respect and care. A good level of English language is mandatory to perform the expected duties.


Volunteers will be expected to

Work during 1 day of the Conference (8 hours) at the least. In compensation, they can choose to either:

In all cases, volunteers will also receive a certificate of participation and a free lunch on the working day(s).
