We invite applications to work on an exciting ERC project led by Dr Alice Goisis. Working with Dr. Goisis, you will conduct quantitative analyses to study children who are conceived through medically assisted reproduction (e.g. IVF) and conduct literature reviews on the topic.

The project will rely on data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study and other datasets from Nordic countries.  You will be expected to contribute to:

  • Write reports documenting changes over time in the provision and utilization of Medically Assisted Reproduction.

This post is available from 01 June 2019 and is funded until 31 May 2020 in the first instance.

You will have completed (or be near completion of) a post graduate qualification or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline such as demography, sociology, quantitative social science or psychology.
