The Department of Social Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science carries out research in a range of social policy-related areas, and hosts the Ageing, Lifecourse and Population Health Analysis (ALPHA) research unit that focuses on individual and population health. The Department is seeking to recruit one or two full-time Research Fellows to work on Professor Mikko Myrskylä’s European Research Council funded project on the causes and consequences of changing family structure. The Research Fellows will be working in close collaboration with Prof. Myrskylä and other Research Fellows of the project, and their broader working environment within the LSE will be the ALPHA research unit and the Social Policy Department. 

Candidates will have a PhD in a relevant area, a track record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals and demonstrated advanced statistical skills. A substantive interest and publication record on the determinants of fertility, or on family and health, as well as experience in modelling longitudinal data is useful. Starting date is as soon as possible, and the duration of the contract is flexible but not beyond 31 January 2019.

The application deadline is June 5th. For more information, visit the Population Europe website.
