One Post-doctoral position (full-time, 4,5 year) and two fully funded PhD positions (4 years) are available for the European Research Council (ERC) funded Consolidator Grant research project DEPRIVEDHOODS: Socio-spatial inequality, deprived neighbourhoods, and neighbourhood effects, led by the principal investigator Professor Maarten van Ham.
DEPRIVEDHOODS is a methodologically challenging inter-disciplinary and international 5-year research project with 10 researchers in four countries, using unique geo-referenced longitudinal data from Sweden, United Kingdom, Estonia, and The Netherlands. The objective is to come to a better understanding of the relationship between socio-economic inequality, poverty and neighbourhoods, at a time when the spatial concentration of poverty within cities is of great concern to national governments. DEPRIVEDHOODS will break new ground by simultaneously studying neighbourhood sorting over the life course, neighbourhood change, and neighbourhood effects, within one theoretical and analytical framework.
