Prosjektleder: Guðbjörg Linda Rafnsdóttir


To study gender differences in research careers – and alternatives
to such careers in the public and private sector in the Nordic countries.
Central questions are: Where in the life-course and how do the research
careers of women and men diverge? How do men and women perceive and
experience possibilities and constraints of work-family dynamics in relation to
demands and opportunities inside and outside of academia?


Longitudinal register data and in-depth interviews in Iceland,
Sweden and Norway. Mapping research careers, and analyse the impact
of age and family situation on career progressions.
