PhD Position in Family Demography
Posted: 1/9/2017 (Employment)
The theme group Families and Generations at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute has a vacancy for one PhD position to study the determinants of health and well-being at older ages. The focus will be on the mechanisms through which life events (e.g., retirement and caregiving) affect health and well-being and how welfare policies shape these mechanisms and outcomes. The main datasets for this project will be the GGS (Generations and Gender Surveys) and SHARE (Survey of Heath and Retirement in Europe). The position will be supervised by Prof. Anne Gauthier (NIDI-RUG) and Prof. Nardi Steverink (RUG) and will be based at NIDI in the Hague. This is a paid position for an initial duration of one year, with the possibility of an additional two years.
