Vacancies for two post-doctoral and four doctoral positions in the project Life-Course Dynamics of Educational Tracking
(LIFETRACK)

LIFETRACK is a country-comparative research project with partners in Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. It is funded by NORFACE. The aim of the project is to find out how the different modes of educational differentiation in secondary education influence the formation of social inequality over the life course. The project will draw on various longitudinal and life-course datasets that are available in the participating countries.

To support our national research teams, we are looking for persons interested in research on social stratification and who are experienced with advanced methods of quantitative and longitudinal data analysis. The following posts will be available:
