Restrictions in and changes to opportunities will be examined using microlevel data combined with Mapineq’s geo-coded database to understand the role of the socioeconomic, policy and natural environmental, family socioeconomic and genetic measures (polygenic scores) of education and occupational prestige.

The PhD candidate will be given freedom to investigate topics within the scope of the project that fit their skills and interests.
