Internship opportunity quantitative research in population studies

22 May 2019

The Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) is offering a research internship in the field of health and retirement. NIDI is one of Europe’s leading research institutes in demography and is located in The Hague, the Netherlands.

The candidate will contribute to a research project on the impact of chronic conditions on participation to the labor market at older ages. In most European and North American countries, younger cohorts are expected to retire at a higher age than older cohorts did. However, health deteriorates with age and often forces older workers to retire early. The main goal of the project is to provide quantitative estimates of the burden of chronic diseases on working life expectancy at the later stage of a career.

The position is for a period of four to six months and is to start between September 2019 and January 2020. The intern will work under the supervision of Dr. Michael Boissonneault and Prof. Leo van Wissen. The successful candidate must show a strong interest in doing research with a quantitative focus and must be enrolled in a Master’s degree in demography (population studies), epidemiology, public health or any other related discipline. Knowledge of the statistical programs Stata or R is preferred but not mandatory.

It is expected that the work done in the framework of the internship lead to a publication in a top-ranked academic journal devoted to demography or public health. The work can also be combined with the writing of a Master’s thesis. The internship is unpaid but a financial compensation of 400 euros/month will be offered. It is a unique chance to acquire practical experience in scientific research and will form a valuable asset for those who desire to pursue an academic career.

Interested candidates are invited to send their C.V. along with a short motivation letter to Michaël Boissonneault at . This internship position will remain open until the position is filled.
