PhD Thesis Prize
Valentina Di Stasio was one of the two winners of this year's PhD Thesis Prize awarded by the European Consortium for Sociological Research (ECSR), for her thesis completed in 2014. Valentina's work uses a vignette design to examine what employers appreciate in applicants in three different countries (the Netherlands, England and Italy).
One of her papers on this work was published in the European Sociological Review, and is accessible open access until March 2016.
Valentina's thesis was written in the context of the VIDI project of Herman van de Werfhorst. He and Klarita Gerxhani were the supervisors of the thesis.
