You will work with Professor Mark Wooden on an Australian Research Council funded project on non-standard employment in Australia and its consequences for workers and their families. The project seeks to address three key questions:

I. What are the labour market pathways followed by workers, and especially by those that experience non-standard employment, and who follows which pathway?

II. How does non-standard employment affect worker outcomes, including: earnings, job satisfaction, mental health, and other measures of material and emotional well-being?

III. How do these effects vary across workers with different characteristics, or across different kinds of non-standard employment?

Ideal role for recent or soon-to-be PhD graduate with strong applied statistical skills and interests in labour markets (e.g. applied labour economics, sociology of work or industrial relations).
