The candidate will spend his or her time entirely on the project – he or she will not have to teach and will not have to carry out administrative tasks other than those necessary for the realization of the project.

Project:The candidate will contribute to the development of an innovative online and open-access microsimulation model for the evaluation of public policies w.r.t. mobility and employment in the Brussels Capital Region.

To this end, the researcher will work in team on manipulating various micro-databases (cleaning, analysis, statistical matching), code parts of the model in R, develop the online graphical interface, estimate econometric models of individual behavior and produce videos and tutorials that will help users to understand the simulation tool as well as the Belgian tax-benefit system.

Team: The candidate will work at the Center for Research in Economics (CEREC – http://www.cerec.be) of the Université Saint-Louis Bruxelles. He or she will be part of a dynamic development team of about ten researchers, led by professors Gilles Grandjean and Tom Truyts.
