Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a vacant postdoc within
the field of European labour market analysis and unemployment data with a
specific focus on profiling of unemployed. The three-year post-doc
(research and teaching) is part of the H2020 funded HECAT project
(Disruptive Technologies Supporting Labour Market Decision Making) which is
led by Dr Ray Griffin at Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland and
carried out in association with nine other consortium members. Copenhagen
Business School is the leader of work package 2 on labour market

The postdoc is a non-tenured position for a three-year period, which
entails two years of research and one year of teaching obligation. The
post-doc will be affiliated with the Department of International Economics,
Government and Business, which brings together the study of states,
markets, and international firms in the context of societal challenges
faced by emerging and advanced economies. Read more about the department

The HECAT project aims to investigate, demonstrate and pilot a profiling
tool to support labour market decision making by unemployed citizens and
caseworkers in Public Employment Services (PES). The ambition of the
project is to improve citizens┬┤ experience and outcomes of unemployment by
offering real-time evidence-based insight into their personal position in
the labour market. The project builds on the experience of existing basic
algorithmic techniques used by some European PES administrations to deliver
labour market insight directly to unemployed citizens and so is built on
European values of open data, collaboration, transparency and
citizen-participation. For more information on HECAT please check here

As part of the overall project, the team based at CBS will critically
assess existing profiling systems for unemployed in public employment
services with a focus on the underlying data and indicators. It will map
and conceptualise the appropriateness of existing statistical data sources
at the European level and in the pilot site(s) with regard to drawing out
profiling indicators with a view on the perceived needs of the unemployed
and case workers. It will also uncover gaps in current data collections in
view of an ethical, sustainable and quality vision of labour market
integration. It will also critically explore the limitations of data for
profiling purposes with regard to data privacy, frequency and timeliness of

Deadline 23 March 2020
