Research Fellow Opportunity UNECE/EC project

Please see the link below for an exciting Research Fellow opportunity to work in the new UNECE/European Commission project: Active Ageing Index: Second Phase (AAI-II).  The Research Fellow will work under the supervision of Asghar Zaidi, and he/she will be responsible for the statistical analysis of large and complex survey datasets including the EU-LFS, the EU-SILC and the EQLS.  The post will be based at the Centre for Research on Ageing, Social Sciences, University of Southampton.
The AAI-II project will undertake an updating of the Active Ageing Index (AAI)*, which was developed during European Year 2012 at European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research, Vienna. It will expand the coverage of the AAI to Croatia and also for a number of UNECE Member States that are not Member States of the EU. It will not only update AAI for a more recent time but also for previous years, and undertake contextual social policy analysis as well. The project team will also assist UNECE/EC in the organisation of a Researchers’ Seminar on ‘Determinants of the AAI results and the life course perspective’, during 2015. 
For those who are interested, please note that the closing date is: Friday 31 January 2014.
