The rising consignment of jobs to machines could disrupt the global economy and usher in a period of long-term technological unemployment. ‘TECHNEQUALITY: Understanding the Relation between Recent Technological Innovations and Social Inequalities,’ is funded by the European Commission as part of H2020. This is a collaborative project between several leading European institutions in various social sciences including sociology, education and economics will serve as a foundation for a better understanding of technologically driven social inequalities as well as a catalyst for new research.

You will have previous experience of contributing to publications and presentations and have an interest in microeconomics and applied economics. You will have experience in statistical packages and/or programming languages.

He or she will collaborate closely with the Oxford Martin Programme on Technological and Economic Change, to provide original insights into the impact of new technologies on inequality. They will be expected to work closely with colleagues in the team to master the existing conceptual and theoretical discussions, be familiar with the literature and provide original insights and evidence to contribute to the success of project.

The post is fixed-term for 3 years and it is hoped that the successful applicant will start work as soon as possible.
