The labour markets of western industrialized states are currently experiencing diverse and sometimes far-reaching processes of change. In order to understand these and to study them in an analytical way, it is necessary to conceive and apply theoretical concepts and empirical findings from a variety of different scientific disciplines.
This is the reason why IAB and the School of Business and Economics of the Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg have set up a programme to support doctoral proposals in the field of labour market research.
The aim of the programme is to train outstanding junior researchers from the social sciences and economics disciplines in the field of labour market and occupational research.
At the end of each year the PhD students that currently started their work are organizing the PhD workshop “Perspectives on (Un-) Employment”. This workshop aims to bring together junior researchers in the field of labour and occupational Research:
IAB grants up to scholarships beginning 1st January each year to outstanding young researchers from the social sciences and economics disciplines.
We expect excellent academic qualifications, an especial interest in and enthusiasm for issues of the labour market and occupational research, and personal qualities that promise success in completing the programme.
Preference will be given to dissertation proposals that would profit in a special way from being attached to IAB and from which IAB itself might profit in a special way. If the preparation of the project outline reveals the need for better knowledge of the IAB data resources there is the possibility to visit the IAB for conducting data research.
