Doctoral course

What

Title: Multidisciplinary research tools to study work and the labour market

Language: English

Level: Academic Master is a prerequisite

Target group: PhD students, especially those whose research relates to work and the labour market in a broad sense. The course is recognised by the following Ghent University Doctoral Schools: Doctoral Schools of Arts, Humanities and Law, Doctoral Schools of Social and Behavioural Sciences and Doctoral Schools of Life Sciences and Medicine.

Abstract: Little topics are studied in so many disciplines (both in general and at UGent) as topics on work and the labour market. Therefore, to thoroughly answer research questions related to these topics, it is necessary to surpass a merely monodisciplinary approach. In this specialist course, participants from multiple disciplines will (i) be immersed by means of seminars in multi- and interdisciplinary research tools to study work and the labour market and (ii) draw up an original research proposal in collaboration with another participant from another discipline.

Who

  • The lectures are given by six professors and two societal stakeholders affiliated to the interdisciplinary research consortium (IDC) UGent @ Work.
  • The 2021 course is coordinated by prof. dr. Stijn Baert.
