Upcoming events of DIW Berlin http://www.diw.de/en/diw_01.c.100419.en/publications_and_events/events/calendar/calendar.html Events en http://diw.de/sixcms/media.php/37/diw_logo_farbe_mini.jpg DIW Berlin http://diw.de/ SOEPcampus@University of Osnabrück http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.670254.en

This two day workshop offers a well-grounded and practically oriented introduction into this sophisticated data source. Participants will be introduced to the content of the study, its data-structure, sample selection and weighting strategy and they will be provided with an overview over the study documentation. Additionally we will discuss the specific potentials for longitudinal data analyses provided by the SOEP. In a variety of “Hands-on Sessions” participants will learn to work with SOEP data, the data-management tool Paneldata.org and documentation material and thereby mimic the entire process from identifying and finding variables containing specific information in the dataset to the creation of the final dataset for analysis and first empirical investigations. The practical part of the workshop requires familiarity with methods of empirical analysis and basic programming skills in STATA.

The workshop is held in German.

Job Market Interview Training http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.678242.en Individual start times, 90 minutes each session

In the academic job market, a face to face interview is the central process to convince potential employers of your future research prospects. Handling a job interview successfully is not an easy challenge, but the skills needed to present yourself in the best light can be practiced. For this reason, this year the BSE will offer job market interview training in the form of a ‘mock interview’.

We will simulate the interview based on a fictive job vacancy in your field of interest. The “selection committee” will consist of at least two senior researchers in your field, e.g. your supervisor and post docs. Moreover, we have invited a job interview coach who will assist in preparing your talk during the days before the interview and attend the talks to give detailed feedback on your performance after the simulation.

InGRID-2 Expert Workshop 'Comparative Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Educational Outcomes’ http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.669556.en

Educational outcomes are crucial for social participation and labor market opportunities. To develop strategies to improve people’s social and economic prospects, governments are increasingly interested in international comparisons of educational opportunities and outcomes. The workshop ‘Comparative Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Educational Outcomes’ aims to describe and discuss educational transitions and outcomes in Europe across the life course. To evaluate educational outcomes in different educational systems, this workshop focuses on the use of various longitudinal datasets, which are key in going beyond merely descriptive approaches and getting closer to causal analysis. Contributions with a focus on comparability of longitudinal datasets, statistical methods for harmonizing longitudinal datasets, and comparative analysis of longitudinal educational trajectories are especially welcome.

This expert workshop is targeted at experienced researchers. It is also open to other academics, policy professionals, and data users, and will provide participants with opportunities to discuss their projects and to network with international experts and colleagues in the field.

SOEP 2020 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.635298.en

The 14th International German Socio-Economic Panel User Conference (SOEP2020) will be held in Berlin on July 9-10, 2020 at DIW Berlin. The conference provides researchers who use the SOEP (including the SOEP part of the Cross-National Equivalent File (CNEF) and LIS/LWS data) with the opportunity to present and discuss their work with their peers. Researchers of all disciplines (e.g., economics, demography, geography, political science, public health, psychology, and sociology) are invited to submit an abstract.
