University of Antwerp Doctoral Scholarship 2020 in Urbanisation, Poverty, and Inequality in Africa
Location: Antwerp, Belgium
Deadline: 8th August 2020
Summary: The university’s recently founded Antwerp Interdisciplinary Platform for Research into Inequality (AIPRIL) seeks to advance our understanding of how socioeconomic inequalities are changing, what is driving such trends, and what, if anything, can be done. The position is based at the Institute of Development Policy (IOB), a member institution of AIPRIL. At IOB scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds come together to study development.
AIPRIL is looking for a full-time. This project will link large spatial datasets of processed satellite imagery on built-up areas and emitted nightlight in Africa to a micro-level household panel and census data. The project aims to understand how urbanization interacts with economic development in Africa.
