Post-doctoral opportunity at McGill

The Canada Research Chair in Social Statistics and Family Change at McGill University is looking for a post-doctoral fellow for a research project that will examine to what extent economic experience over the life course influences conjugal and fertility behaviours and, conversely, the effect of family trajectory on an individual's financial situation. The analyses will be based on a unique database matching the 2011 Canadian General Social Survey, a large retrospective study investigating respondents’ family and work trajectories, with their tax files from 1982 to 2013.
