We invite applications from qualified and highly motivated students for an ESRC funded 3-year PhD Studentship to study environmental effects on population health. The PhD studentship is based at the University of St Andrews and is funded by the ESRC Scottish Graduate School of Social Science within the Health, Families, Relationships and Demographic Change pathway. The successful applicant will investigate short- and long-term effects of air pollution and extreme weather events on health and mortality across population subgroups in Britain, and will develop a multilevel survival model to study the effect of time-varying contextual factors on individuals’ health and mortality (for project description, please see https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/gsd/opportunities/pg/phdfunding/). Application of advanced quantitative methods (AQM) is the requirement of the studentship. The PhD student will be supervised by Prof. Hill Kulu, and Dr. Urška Demšar. For applicants just completing their undergraduate degree there is also funding for a one-year master’s course in research methodology followed by a three-year PhD.
Deadline: 10 April 2019
Course in Living conditions and demographic change in pre-industrial societies, Lund, Sweden
The Center for Economic Demography and Department of Economic History at Lund University will host a two-week intensive course on Living Conditions and Demographic Change in Pre-Industrial Societies from September 2-12, 2019.
This advanced course in economic demography equips students with sources and methods for analysing living standards in the past. Using event-history analysis and combining longitudinal individual level demographic data with information on socioeconomic factors at household level, and macro data on food prices, wages, temperature, and rainfall, we investigate short and long-term economic stress and early life exposures on later life outcomes as well as intergenerational social and biological transfers.
