3 PhD positions are available within the ERC Consolidator project ‘CAPABLE’
The 3 PhD candidates will be embedded in Dr. Mara Yerkes’ European Research Council (ERC)-Consolidator project CAPABLE, which investigates the role of national and local policies across Europe in shaping men and women’s real opportunities for work-life balance.
Location: The Netherlands
Salary: €2325—€2972 per month
Deadline: 31 March 2019
Three PhD positions are available. Each PhD candidate will carry out an in-depth, mixed-methods case study in two cities in a single country. Candidates are asked to apply for a specific case study: 1) the UK (London/Leeds); 2) Slovenia (Ljubljana/Maribor); or 3) Spain (Barcelona/Pamplona). Note that while the PhD candidates will be located in the Netherlands, periods of fieldwork to the country under study are planned and travel is required.

Duties of each PhD candidate include: conducting theoretical and mixed-methods empirical research on the project’s topic, resulting in a PhD dissertation and in journal publications; participating in the teaching and research activities of the Public Health chair within the Department of Interdisciplinary Social Science; completing any necessary coursework required for completion of the PhD.

Because the PhD candidates work in a larger research project, teamwork and communication are essential. In addition to their individual work, the PhD candidates will contribute to regular project team meetings and joint conference presentations and academic publications.
