We are seeking two outstanding quantitative researchers to work on the European Research Council funded project GENTIME: Temporal Structures of Gender Inequalities in Asian and Western Welfare Regimes, led by Professor Man-Yee Kan (Principal Investigator).

GenTime is a study of gender inequality in trends and patterns of time use across East Asian and Western societies. The project employs time diary data, time series, and longitudinal survey data. The successful candidates should be able to work on one or more of the following topics: 1) timing and schedules of paid work, unpaid work, and leisure; 2) impacts of technology and flexible-working arrangements on the gender division of labour; 3) gender differences in leisure and rest time; 4) changes in time use over the life course and the consequences of time use on well-being, satisfaction, fertility, and other family and employment outcomes.

The successful candidates will hold or be close to completion of a PhD in sociology, social policy, demography, economics, or another relevant discipline. Experience in analysing time use data or other large scale survey data, strong quantitative data analysis skills (particularly in sequence analysis and/or panel data analysis), and an interest in conducting comparative research involving East Asian countries are essential. Candidates will be required to show evidence of producing high quality research papers for submitting to peer-reviewed academic journals.

These posts are full-time on a fixed-term contract, for 24 months in the first place, and are extendable to a further 6 to 12 months, starting by March 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Applications, including a covering letter, CV, and the names of 3 referees should be submitted by 12:00 noon on 13 December 2021.
