Individual postdoctoral project 1009468

Two-year postdoctoral position, starting 1 January 2019 or soon thereafter.

The Danish School of Education (DPU), Faculty of Arts at Aarhus University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the research project “Reducing Inequality in Access to Higher Education: An Intervention Study” financed by the Danish Council for Independent Research (Social Sciences). The position is based at DPU, Aarhus Campus.

Project description
The objective of the project is to develop an intervention that can reduce social inequality in access to higher education programmes in Denmark. The intervention study will be designed to address potential academic and social challenges that might prevent less privileged upper secondary (gymnasium) students from choosing university studies. In order to test the effectiveness of the intervention, data from the Danish Coordinated Admission system (KOT) will be analysed in addition to register data on actual student enrolment from Statistics Denmark. Additionally, post-intervention survey data will be collected. The postdoctoral project should be thematically situated in the field of research on educational inequality and intervention implementation/evaluation.

Qualifications
The successful applicant is expected to have:
• a PhD (or equivalent) in sociology, education or related social sciences
• experience working with large-scale datasets (such as the Danish administrative registers)
• proven skills in quantitative research methods and data analysis
• high-quality international publications.


Basic Danish language skills will be advantageous given the empirical work in the project, but are not strictly required. Candidates who wish to apply are encouraged to obtain the full research project description from project leader David Reimer (dare@edu.au.dk).

Research proposal
The application must include a proposal of four to five pages for a postdoctoral research project that fits into the overall project. The application must be submitted in English.

Teaching and knowledge exchange

The position does not involve teaching. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to exchange knowledge with various sectors of society and to contribute actively to the public debate in areas related to the position.

Research environment
The Danish School of Education at Aarhus University is the largest centre for research and teaching in the fields of education, didactics and learning in Denmark, with approximately 250 full-time researchers, including 80 PhD students, and approximately 5,000 Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students.
