Two temporary researcher appointments are approved and offered for social scientists with excellent analytical and writing skills who have completed their PhD. The selected candidates will be invited to join the project “Healthy lifespan inequality: Measurement, trends and determinants”. The HEALIN project is funded by the European Research Council as a Consolidator Grant and will be led by Dr. Iñaki Permanyer at the Center for Demographic Studies (CED) in Barcelona.
The HEALIN project aims at investigating a currently unexplored area of research: what is the extent of inequality in the distribution of healthy and unhealthy lifespans across individuals? For that purpose, it proposes to construct a new class of population health measures: the ‘healthy lifespan inequality’ indicators.
