Maarten Vink appointed ROA Research Fellow

 MACIMIDE co-director prof. Maarten Vink has been appointed as research fellow at the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA), a research institute of the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics (SBE).

 The overarching research theme of ROA is the acquisition and depreciation of human capital over the life course in relation to the dynamics of the labour market. ROA collaborates nationally and internationally with several academic researchers and research institutes. To further bolster research efforts and to improve the quality of research, ROA has developed a research fellow network with external economists and researchers in affiliated disciplines. A ROA fellowship lasts for the period of three years. The goal of Vink’s ROA Fellowship is to further increase inter-faculty collaboration at Maastricht University.

 Maarten Vink is professor of political science at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This academic year he will spend several months in Malmö, Sweden, where he has been appointed as Willy Brandt Guest Professor at the Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM) at Malmö University. There, he will collaborate with colleagues in Malmö on comparative analyses in the context of his ERC-project MiLifeStatus, present first research results and give a number of guest lectures.
