Dr. Tim Bruckner seeks a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Program in Public Health at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), to quantify the extent to which postponement of childbearing in Denmark affects health, educational, labor market, and other societal costs-both for parents and their children. The fellowship is a one-year appointment with the possibility of one-to-two-year renewal. This appointment is contingent upon receipt of the Ph.D. prior to the start date. The start date is negotiable but could begin as early as June 1, 2024.
Background: Over the last 40 years, age of first-time mothers in Denmark has increased by more than 20%, from 24.8 years in 1981 to 29.8 years in 2021. The newly funded project (in cooperation with the Rockwool Foundation) aims to understand the extent to which postponement of childbearing affects birth outcomes, children's health and educational outcomes, and parental labor force participation. We will characterize changes over time (i.e., 1980 to 2018) in parents' delay of childbearing in Denmark and delineate which demographic groups in particular account for these trends. We will exploit the longitudinal nature of register data (available from Statistics Denmark) to use sibling-control and maternal fixed-effects methods to estimate biologically-based sequelae of older age at childbearing (>30 years) as well as social "selection" into postponed childbearing. Lastly, we will focus on women of non-western backgrounds and the special circumstances that apply to this group.
