This is an exciting opportunity for legal expert in technical change - particularly digitalization and digital automation - and trade to join a new multi-million-pound ESRC-funded Research Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP). The Centre spans four departments in Sussex plus universities in all four UK nations, and comprises scholars from economics, law, business management, politics and international relations.
The Research Fellow will work primarily on the digital services theme of the ESRC Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP): researching the interaction between UK digital services regulation and trade policy, and the use, scope and effects of Regulatory Coherence obligations in free trade agreements. The post is an early career research position. The post-holder will be expected to contribute to the work of the research team, and also to develop their research skills with support from more experienced members of staff.
The Department of Law seeks researchers with outstanding potential to work in a dynamic department which focusses on both research outputs and impact and attracts high-quality postgraduate and undergraduate students. The candidate should demonstrate the potential to conduct high quality research in the law of international trade, and to be able to communicate it clearly in writing and verbally. They should demonstrate ability in digital trade and trade policy.
The Research Fellows will be part of the CITP’s Early Career Researcher cohort for which the Centre will organize various professional development activities. They will also form part of a large group of trade scholars in Sussex which, as well as CITP, includes faculty and also Research Fellows in the UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO). Collaboration and team working will be central to the work of both the CITP and the UKTPO, so being able to work closely with colleagues in a fast-moving and exciting area is important. This is an exciting time to join a dynamic and rapidly growing unit undertaking advanced research on international trade and trade policy.
