The aim of this study was to disentangle the role migration plays in several job satisfaction dimensions for academic researchers. We employ a novel database, MORE2, to track the migratory behaviour of European doctorate holders and use a multinomial treatment model to deal with selections bias. We find that more migratory individuals demonstrate higher levels of job satisfaction across several dimensions. These findings are in line with the hypothesis that economic agents who migrate more are better at processing information and find more suitable employment.
