PhD-candidate at the Leibniz Institute for Economic Research

RWI is inviting applications for a PhD-candidate (m/f/d) (100% for 3 years) in the new Policy Lab “Climate Change, Development and Migration”. The position is to work in close collaboration with Profs. Renate Hartwig and Jörg Ankel-Peters on population, health and development economics – with a meta-scientific angle. The candidate will apply empirical and data-driven methods, including qualitative and quanti- tative research designs, using a range of methods from text analysis to expert surveys and Randomized Controlled Trials. Projects will also examine the scientific process, i.e. how empirical evidence is generated and compiled, as well as, the shortcomings thereof. A specific focus will be dedicated to the science-policy interface and how scientific knowledge translates to society.

The full-time position (100%) is initially limited to three years, but an extension is desired. The position is based in Essen/Germany starting as soon as possible. Details can be arranged in consultation with the candidate. The remuneration and benefits are based on the German public service pay scale (100% TV-L E13). The deadline for application submissions is 15.03.2024.
