The PhD-scholarships are placed within the Graduate School for Integration, Production and Welfare.
2 scholarships are affiliated with the Department of Economics at Aarhus School of Business and the Danish National Institute of Social Research.
1 scholarship is partly funded by the Nordic Centre of Excellence in Empirical Labour Economics (see http://ele.ifau.se for further information) and affiliated with the Department of Economics at Aarhus School of Business.
The PhD-scholarships are offered within quantitative analyses of labour market and welfare policies, including e.g. analysis of the effects of labour market programmes, the effects of programmes in relation to children, youth, families, immigrants or elderly, or the use of economic incentives in employment or integration policies.
The aim is to analyse different types of interventions targeting these groups, and to develop and apply econometric methods for evaluating programmes using micro data.
