NORFACE is in search for a Scientific Programme Coordinator for its ERA-NET Cofund research programme Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life-course (DIAL). The Scientific Programme Coordinator will promote cohesion and cooperation in the programme by communicating the activities, outcomes and successes of the programme to the academic and non-academic world.
The DIAL programme was launched in December 2015, to study the complex and highly intertwined sources of inequality in contemporary societies, and their consequences. The programme puts transnational collaboration at the centre of its activities and three major objectives:
- To advance globally excellent theoretical and methodological research on dynamics of inequality across the life-course which may be multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and comparative, and which builds synergistically on a pan-European basis.
- To motivate and support excellence and capacity building for research on dynamics of inequality across the life-course on a cross-national basis throughout the NORFACE countries.
- To develop understanding and promote research-based knowledge and insight into dynamics of inequality across the life-course for issues of societal, practical and policy relevance, with theoretical foundations but worked on jointly with relevant users and experts.
The scientific coordination of the DIAL programme is essential for creating added value to the researchers involved in the programme. The Scientific Programme Coordinator will have the exiting task of bringing the various research teams together to work synergistically, but also to communicate activities, results and successes of the projects and programme to the academic and non-academic community and to promote capacity-building and networking in the programme.

Candidates are invited to apply no later than 15 November 2017 to the NORFACE Coordination Office at NWO, via firstname.lastname@example.org. Any queries about the application requirement can be addressed to the Coordination Office via the same address.
The Scientific Programme Coordinator is expected to be appointed by February/March 2018.
