PhD-student Comparative Welfare Attitudes Research

The PhD candidate will be employed at the Centre for Sociological Research (CeSO). The PhD-project is supervised by prof. Bart Meuleman and prof. Wim van Oorschot.

Project

The holder of the position is expected to prepare a PhD on the following topic: Deservingness perceptions in European welfare states: Comparative analyses of public opinion on the social rights and duties of needy groups.

In welfare states different groups of needy people are treated differently. For some groups social protection is more easily accessible, more generous, longer lasting, and/or less subjected to reciprocal obligations than for other groups. Generally, such differential treatment is assumed to be influenced by economic (e.g. less protection for less productive groups), political (e.g. better protection for groups with stronger lobbies) and cultural factors (e.g. better protection for ‘our kind of’ people, or for ‘well-behaving’ people). This project aims to contribute to a cultural understanding of welfare distribution by analysing public images of needy groups, and popular perceptions of their welfare deservingness. Such knowledge is highly relevant in times of economic crisis and the resulting calls for welfare reform.

This project combines various comparative surveys with economic and institutional context data to tackle three broad research questions. A first purpose is to give a description of the rank order of welfare deservingness of needy groups in selected welfare states, and explain individual differences in deservingness opinions by means of social-structural positions and ideological dispositions. Second, the project attempts to explain differences in deservingness opinions across European welfare states by means of economic and institutional context variables. Third, short-term, as well as long-term changes in European deservingness opinions are studied.

Profile

  • a master degree in sociology, political science, or social policy
  • a high grade point average for the bachelor and master programs
  • excellent skills in statistical analysis of survey data
  • comparative knowledge of social policy/welfare state systems and their development
  • good command over various statistical packages (SPSS, SAS, MLwin, etc.)
  • excellent skills in English (command over the Dutch language is an additional asset)
  • a talent for combining personal initiative and team spirit

Offer

  • a fulltime position, initially for 1 year, with an extension to 4 years after good evaluation
  • a monthly stipend of about 1800,- euro net, depending on family situation and work experience
  • possibilities for further professional development (e.g. through additional courses, participation in workshops and seminars)
  • a stimulating and demanding research environment

Interested?
