Six post-doctoral fellowship positions are opened for twelve months, from October 2017 to September 2018.

Candidates should have finished their PhD less than three years ago, in the following disciplines: economics, ergonomics, sociology, political science. Whatever the discipline, candidates should prove a good ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment, and a capacity to conduct research based on original empirical data (quantitative or case studies/interviews).

For this call, the following research topics have been identified as priorities for post-doctoral fellows:

  • digital economy: working conditions and workers’ skills; training (initial and vocational) and skills; labour market and digital technologies;
  • well-being at work: working conditions; careers and work trajectories (analyzed through employees’ surveys);
  • labour market policies and labour market reforms: analyses and evaluation focusing on short-term contracts; collective bargaining decentralisation; Youth Guarantee;
  • vocational training: impact on careers and trajectories; training adults needs and new target groups (vulnerable groups);
  • labour market integration and inequalities: youth; seniors employment patterns; links between maternity and careers; employment trajectories for second generation immigrants in an international comparative perspective.

For quantitative projects, the CEET will provide access to databases or help getting access to required data (including databases from Cnam about vocational trainees’ employment outcomes).
