Post-Doctoral Fellow
INED, Institut National D’études Démographiques

The post‐doctoral fellow will take part in the WORKLIFE project which aims at studying:

(1) the impact of non‐standard working hours on family life (parenting, couple/separation,
gender inequalities)
(2) the role of employers in employees' choices (postponement of births, transition to part‐
time work, etc.)

The WORKLIFE project uses mixed and 3 data sources: French and European panels (Gender and Generation Survey; Working Conditions Survey); HR files from big companies and administrations; employee interviews.

The post‐doctoral fellow will be part of an interdisciplinary team (sociology, economics, demography and management), lead by an international scientific committee (Oxford University, UQAM, University of Lausanne, University of Turin, EHESS).

The recruited researcher will carry out statistical analyses of the RH files and Working Conditions Survey. Under the supervision of Anne Lambert (PI), he/she analyses the impact of working hours on life course events and careers of employees of various socio‐economic backgrounds. He/she will contribute to writing scientific reports and journal articles, and attend project meetings at which he/she will present intermediate results. This project offers the possibility of international travel for the international team's working meetings.
