We wish to appoint two part-time researchers to work on the research project Nonviolent Repression in Electoral Autocracies, led by Dr Katerina Tertytchnaya

The project investigates how contemporary electoral autocracies, regimes that combine authoritarian practices with multiparty elections, use legal strategies of repression, delegated to bureaucrats and courts, in order to restrict protest and hinder opposition and voter coordination. The project draws empirical evidence from contemporary Russia. It includes quantitative opinion surveys, quantitative and qualitative content analysis, and the collection of protest-event data.

The successful candidates will contribute to (1) the (1) collection and analysis of protest notification and protest-event data, and (2) the design and implementation of the survey-experimental and media analysis strands of the project, under the supervision of Dr Tertytchnaya. The two posts may divide or share responsibilities across these research areas.

The candidate must hold a first-class Bachelor's degree in political science or a related field (or high 2.1 with detailed breakdown of grades), or equivalent and a Master's degree.

Full professional proficiency or Native/Bilingual Proficiency in Russian is desirable.
