The position

The position is a one-year post doc, with the option for a second year, in the field of macro-labor. The post doc will work together with Professor Johanna Wallenius (and potential co-authors) on a project on life cycle labor supply. A key focus of the project is on understanding inequality and the interaction of risks and social insurance systems over the life cycle. Much of the project is quantitative in nature, so good computational skills are an asset. The objective is to co-author high quality journal articles. There is no teaching associated with the position.

The position starts September 1, 2021.

Salary: 40 000 SEK per month (before tax).
