Job posted by University of Southern Denmark (SDU):
The SHARE group focuses on collection of Danish SHARE survey data. These data are merged into a European data base including data from 28 other European countries for studying the effects of health, social, economic and environmental policies over the life-course of European citizens and beyond. From 2004 until today, 530,000 in-depth interviews with 140,000 people aged 50 or older from 28 European countries and Israel have been conducted. Thus, SHARE is the largest pan-European social science panel study providing internationally comparable longitudinal micro data which allow insights in the fields of public health and socio-economic living conditions of European individuals.
Furthermore, the SHARE group, which is anchored in the Econometrics and Data Science platform at the Department of Economics, carries out research using the SHARE database with a focus on the ageing Europe, including inequality of ageing and ageing consequences using machine learning, big data approaches and other advanced econometric methods. The SHARE group’s research activities are furthermore integrated with the Center for Population Dynamic (CPOP), which is a leading ageing research center also hosted at SDU.
We welcome candidates whose fellowship proposal is related to SHARE’s research focus. If successful, the project will lead to a position at our university for two years as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. We have been very successful in getting grants the past years.
