We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher to join the new Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Development, supporting the Director and Lead Researcher in their intellectual and operational management of the programme.
You will join a cohort of research officers working on firms, labour markets, livelihoods, and structural change in low- and middle-income countries in light of global changes. The distributional impacts of technological change, climate change, and decarbonization efforts are of particular interest to the programme. Through your research, you will be able to shape this new multidisciplinary research effort.
This post is full time, 2 years fixed term reporting to Dr Christian Meyer and would be suited to someone who has experience in one or more postdoctoral positions already and is looking for their next challenge.
The successful candidate will be responsible for their own academic research and administrative activities, within guidelines provided by the Lead Researcher and the Programme Director.
Applicants will be expected to have a PhD in Economics, Political Science, Public Policy, Development Studies, Business, or related fields. They will also have significant experience of research projects and mentoring.
The successful candidate should have a deep understanding of, and significant research outputs in, fields related to the programme. Applicants should have an interest in translating economic development research into policy and a commitment to our aim of reframing development away from the preoccupation with aggregate growth and instead focus on shared prosperity in the face of global challenges.
The Oxford Martin School supports the University’s commitment in fostering an inclusive culture which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of its staff and students are respected. We are eager to receive applications from a diverse pool of candidates.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your application.
Only applications received before 12.00 noon (UK time) on Friday 3rd December 2021 can be considered.
