This role is for a position as an Economic and Policy Analyst in the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) to support the Institute’s Knowledge Exchange work on analysis of economic and social policy. Knowledge Exchange (KE) roles at the University of Strathclyde are focussed on both development and dissemination of applied research and analysis. KE staff regularly work with external bodies (including industry, government and business) to create mutually beneficial collaborations
The FAI is Scotland’s leading economic research institute, with an unrivalled reputation for independent and insightful policy analysis and provides regular and rigorous analysis on key areas of devolved policy. The type of work this post holder will be involved in will be varied, but is likely to include analysis of the impacts on households and the wider economy of tax and spend policy decisions in Scotland, assessment and communication of key trends in Scotland’s labour market data, and modelling of the impact of changes in the social security system on households and the distribution of incomes.
This position is to support the Institute’s existing work on policy analysis and dissemination on a range of areas. In addition, there will be the chance to work on commissioned projects with external partners and opportunities to seek new funding streams to support further analysis into areas of interest.
To be considered for the role, you will have a good honours degree and PhD / higher degree (or equivalent professional experience) in appropriate discipline. You will have sufficient breadth or depth of knowledge in the relevant discipline/s to contribute the existing work of the Institute and to develop new areas of analysis. You will have the ability to conduct individual projects, work directly and independently with external partners, and to prepare new analysis and research proposals.
Formal interviews for this post will be held on Monday, 29 November 2021.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Emma Congreve, Knowledge Exchange Fellow, email@example.com.
