We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in the project Well-being at work (W W) at the Department of Behavioural and Cognitive Sciences (DBCS).
The W W project is funded by the Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Luxembourg and aims at understanding how the disappearance of the workplace, i.
e., the increase in digital, remote work, which was accelerated by the pandemic, affects people across work life. In the project, we will use an interdisciplinary method-mix, consisting of a legal analysis, a longitudinal survey in six European countries and a case study in a large company in Luxembourg.
The successful candidate will be involved in analyzing data from the longitudinal survey and design, execute, and analyze the case study.
They are expected to publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals, present their work at international scientific conferences and assist in disseminating the project findings to relevant stakeholders and the general public.
They will also be involved in day-to-day project management and participate in project team meetings and workshops.
