OFFER DESCRIPTION

CEMO provides a stimulating research environment by bringing together internationally renowned experts in methodological and substantive research fields to solve core educational problems. The Centre also contributes to the development of measurement competence through teaching and outreach and offers a Master of Science program in Measurement, Assessment and Evaluation. The Centre is part of a broad international network and comprises about 30 employees from 15 countries.

The PhD position is related to research examining cross-national trends in equality and equity in educational outcomes. Specifically, we are interested in analyzing the development of disparities in reading, mathematics, and science skills related to gender, socio-economic background, teaching and school quality over time by using data from international large-scale assessments (e.g., TIMSS) since the 1960s. Some countries, such as Sweden or the United States, have participated in almost all cycles. Other countries, such as Australia or England, have participated in the majority of the assessments. Therefore, rich data from a broad range of countries is available that allow examining country-specific or cross-national developments, for example with respect to changes before and after a larger curriculum reform.
