IntegrateYouth (Integration research)

IntegrateYouth (Structural, cultural and social integration among youth: A multidimensional comparative project) is a four-year research program funded by Nordforsk and headed by Carina Mood, Professor of Sociology. The project studies integration of immigrant youth in five countries (Norway, Sweden, England, Germany and the Netherlands) using primarily (although not exclusively) the large-scale and internationally comparable CILS4EU and CILS-NOR survey data (see www.cils4.eu).

The project is a formal collaboration between SOFI at Stockholm University, Nuffield College at Oxford University and the Norwegian research institute Fafo. It also includes collaborators at Utrecht University (Netherlands) and MZES, Mannheim University (Germany). Part of the duration of the employment can, if desired, be spent at Nuffield College and/or Fafo in Oslo.

MINQ (Inequality research)


Project description

MINQ (Interlocking inequalities: A multidimensional perspective on inequality in contemporary Sweden) is funded by a grant from Forte (Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life, and Welfare) and headed by Carina Mood, Professor of Sociology. While the project focuses on Sweden an internationally comparative aspect is an essential part, so international applicants are welcome.

The research consists primarily in empirical analysis of micro-level data, and for those who wish we offer access to excellent data sources (e.g., register data, CILS4EU, the Level of Living Survey). The project includes team members from sociology, economics, psychology and demography, and we put great value on openness to perspectives from different disciplines.

The project is broad and gives ample opportunities to shape an independent research profile. We especially encourage candidates with research ideas in the following areas:

  • Income inequality, poverty, relative deprivation
  • Inequalities in health
  • Labour market precarity
  • The level-of-living of children and youth
  • Educational inequality
  • Intergenerational transmission of advantage
  • Family issues
