PhD position (University of Antwerp)

The Institute of Development Policy (IOB, University Antwerp, Belgium) is opening a PhD position to be supervised from September 2019. The position should lead to a PhD in Development Studies but joint or double PhDs degrees (e.g. in economics, political sciences, …) are possible.

The field is broadly defined as studying the causes and consequences of migration or trade shocks in developing countries, with a strong emphasis on causal identification. A quantitative background together with some experience in dealing with micro-level data (household, firm, farms,…) and satellite-based and/or geo-referenced data would be an asset.
