We invite applications from qualified and highly motivated students for a 3.75-year St Andrews–Max Planck PhD studentship in Demography / Population Studies. The PhD studentship is funded by the University of St Andrews and the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR). The PhD student will be working on fertility in high income countries. The aims of the project are to analyse fertility trends and patterns in a number of high income / European countries and to investigate social and contextual determinants of fertility, while potentially also making use of subnational spatial variation. The project will be part of a European network for fertility research investigating recent shifts in the relationship between human development and fertility both at the individual and aggregate population level. The PhD student will be supervised by the following team: Prof. Hill Kulu (St Andrews), Prof. Mikko Myrskylä (MPIDR), Dr. Sebastian Klüsener (MPIDR) and Dr. Júlia Mikolai (St Andrews).
