Two Postdoc positions at the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED, Barcelona)

The Department of Sociology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, UAB) invites applications for two postdoctoral researcher positions (Investigador ordinari) in the ERC-funded research project LIFELONGMOVE “Understanding spatial mobility from early life into adulthood” This 5-year project is led by Professor Sergi Vidal and will kick off in early 2023. The project will be carried out in the Centre for Demographic Studies (Centre d’Estudis Demogràfics, CED) located at the UAB campus. The posts require collaborative research stays within Europe and travel for conferences, training and dissemination activities, e.g. in relation to the IUSSP panel on migration trajectories.


The LIFELONGMOVE project comprehensively and systematically examines spatial mobility over a lifetime, from early age into adulthood. The project’s three components and main objectives are (component 1) to document the diverse and complex pathways of lifelong mobility, from early childhood into adulthood; (component 2) to establish whether and how earlier or childhood moves influence spatial mobility over the life course; and (component 3) to document the impact of lifelong mobility on life conditions, by focusing on socio-economic, family, and health outcomes.

The successful applicants will have demonstrated experience in longitudinal data modelling, working with large, complex datasets. 

The project is based at the Sociology Department and the Centre for Demographic Studies at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. 

The full call for application is available at this link.
