The PhD candidate will study the social, demographic and health consequences of technology-induced job loss. This endeavor can help to better prepare for and identify contexts and policies that mitigate adverse social and health effects of technology-induced job loss. The project includes examining the consequences of technology-induced displacement, both on individual workers and the wider society, such as families and regions. Within this broad topic, the candidate will have the opportunity to develop their own research agenda and collaborate throughout and beyond the MPIDR.
Potential data sets to be used include Norwegian population registries which contain information on occupation, education, cognitive test performance, health, intergenerational relations as well as physiological and mental health trajectories. Additional, alternative data sources include register-based data from other countries, as well as large-scale survey data.
