University of Antwerp | Doctoral Scholarship Urbanisation, Poverty and Inequality in Africa

Deadline for application: 26 August 2020

The University of Antwerp’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. AIPRIL is looking for a full-time (100%) Doctoral scholarship holder to conduct research on the topic of Urbanisation, Poverty and Inequality in Africa.

This project will link large spatial datasets of processed satellite imagery on built-up areas and emitted nightlight in Africa to micro-level household panel and census data. The project aims to understand how urbanisation interacts with economic development in Africa.
