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? More information about the project can be found here: http://lifetrack.eu/.

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Vikki Boliver (vikki.boliver@durham.ac.uk). All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
