JOB OFFER - Doctoral Student in the field of career research and life course studies

NCCR LIVES invites applications for a 4-year position as doctoral student in the field of career research and life course studies, under the supervision of Prof. Felix Bühlmann.

As a doctoral student in the IP 7 on “Career paths” the successful candidate will be able to formulate his or her own PhD project based on a combined panel and calendar data study on careers. The thesis, under the supervision of Prof. Felix Bühlmann and Prof. Jonas Masdonati is expected to focus on how life events shape occupational trajectories. The tasks include conducting a calendar based questionnaire study, building a coherent theoretical framework, developing adequate research questions, analyzing the data, and publishing results.

The thesis will provide valuable answers to relevant questions in our current societies, such as: what types of life and career paths characterize workers today? Have career trajectories become more insecure? What impacts do unstable trajectories have on career adaptability, on feelings of occupational security or on subjective well-being? How do life events shape workers’ career trajectories?

JOB OFFER - Doctoral Student SNSF in Quantitative Social Research

NCCR LIVES invites applications for a 4-year position as doctoral student SNSF in Quantitative Social Research under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Oesch.

The doctoral student will be able to write a PhD within a new project that revisits a large sample of displaced industrial workers 10-12 years after they lost their job in Switzerland. These workers were surveyed a first time in 2011, 2-3 years after their firms closed down, and will be surveyed a second time in 2020 to provide insight into the long-term consequences that plant closure and mass displacement have on people’s lives.

The doctoral student will be able to participate in the development of the questionnaire and the fielding of the survey. He or she can then fully use these data to write his or her PhD thesis on topics such as unemployment scarring, job loss and family trajectories, job mobility and career trajectories, or some other aspect of life course sociology. There is much scope for innovation and new ideas, be it in terms of data collection (life calendars, in-depth interviews), methods or topics.
