Department of Social Policy and Intervention, 32 Wellington Square, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 p.a.

The Department of Social Policy and Intervention is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Political Economy of Health to work on a project studying how institutions affect health and health inequalities.

Working as part of a multi-disciplinary and multi-method research group, the postholder will be responsible for bringing together novel data sources that help us understand whether the rules governing the organisation of political systems, e.g., whether countries are democracies or not, improve longevity and reduce disparities in mortality between social groups.

You will be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities, identifying and analysing novel datasets, and collaborating in writing journal articles and giving academic presentations. The postholder will also be involved in a small amount of teaching.

You will have, or be close to completing a PhD/DPhil in a relevant subject area, and have experience conducting quantitative analysis using cross-national data, such as the World Bank Indicators. Ideally you will be familiar with the methods social scientists use to identify causality in observational data. You will have experience of contributing ideas for research projects and grant applications, and you will possess excellent communications skills, with the ability to write for publication and to present your results.

This is a full-time post, fixed-term for 2 years.

All applicants must complete a short application form and upload a CV and supporting statement.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Monday 20 April 2020 can be considered.

Closing Date: 20-APR-2020 12:00
