Konrad Turek, PhD
I am a sociologist, social researcher and data analyst working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) in the Work & Retirement group and at the University of Amsterdam in the Institutions, Inequalities, and Life courses group (IIL).
My research is focused on changing and ageing labour markets, lifecourses inequalities, lifelong learning, ageing policies, age stereotypes, age management and retirement patterns. I specialise in quantitative methodology and statistics, particularly in panel and multilevel analysis, structural equation modelling and Bayesian statistics. I am also interested in general methodology and epistemology, especially in Charles Peirce’s pragmatism.
I received a Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to study the role of human capital investments for retirement transitions [LEEP]. I co-coordinated the Human Capital Study – the largest labour market research in Poland. I participated in numerous other research projects granted e.g. by NORFACE, 7th Framework Program, European Commission, or German Research Foundation. I also co-authored the Polish national strategy for employment of older people.
