Durham University is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate on a full-time basis to work with Professor Vikki Boliver on the UK component of a NORFACE funded research project entitled Life-Course Dynamics of Educational Tracking (LIFETRACK).

The wider LIFETRACK project led by Professor Steffen Schindler at the University of Bamberg involves a comparative quantitative analysis of harmonized life-course datasets for six European countries: Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, and the UK. The project aims to answer the following question: how and why do different educational systems, and in particular their various modes of educational tracking and sorting, influence the formation and reproduction of social inequalities over the life course?
