A talk exclusively for Hertie School PhD students and alumni by Alexandre Afonso (Assistant Professor in Public Policy, Leiden University).

Alexandre Afonso's main fields of research are public policy and comparative political economy with a focus on welfare state and labour market reforms, the political economy of labour migration, and the role of parties and organised interests in policy reforms. He teaches courses on public policy, organised interests, globalisation and research methods. Before joining Leiden University, Alexandre Afonso was a lecturer at King's College London. He has held research fellowships at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, the European University Institute in Florence, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Amsterdam. He holds a PhD in Politics from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and studied in Geneva and Zurich.

Alexandre Afonso’s talk will be based on his personal experience in different academic systems and on recent articles about varieties of academic job markets in Europe such as this one published in October 2016 by Cambridge University Press.
