Specificaties - (uitleg)
|Uren||38,0 uren per week|
|Salaris||maximaal € 2638|
|About employer||Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)|
This PhD research focuses on the question of how payment and asset risks connected with buying a house and the factors influencing these risks can be measured and analysed, and what data are needed for this. Products to limit the risks for households are taken into account, such as the National Mortgage Guarantee (NMG) or a possible home value insurance. The emphasis in the research lies on methods and techniques for developing new, statistical information in this area that could be published by the CBS.
Your first step in this project is to identify the risks in the housing market, the parties who play a role and the information required to monitor and limit the risks. The next step is to inventory existing risk indicators and statistical information, including loan-to-value and loan-to-income ratios and housing price indices, and establishing their accuracy. Next you will research how this information can be expanded and detailed, illustrating the feasibility with the help of actual data. An example concerns estimating - with or without a model - housing price indices at the low regional level.
The PhD position is part of the Housing Value Expertise Centre.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.
