The Department of Economics is looking to appoint two Research Fellows with a strong background in applied microeconomics to collaborate with Professor Sonia Bhalotra on research in relation to an ERC research program on violence against women. The successful candidate(s) are invited to generate new ideas that fit within the frame or that are broadly related.
Full time, fixed term contract, ideally to start by 1 April 2024 with some flexibility in start date and duration. The expected duration is 2-years subject to performance-based probation, and there may be a possibility to extend it further.
The positions are research intensive. There is no teaching requirement and only occasional and small administrative tasks related to data access or project reporting for instance. The candidate will be invited to participate actively in department seminars and research group reading groups and research away days. They will benefit from and contribute to the broader research environment which, in Warwick, is one of the best in the country (and internationally).
The posts are funded by the ERC. Project summary: Violence against women (VAW) is both a cause of and a manifestation of gender inequality. It generates significant constraints on women’s lives, with spillovers for society, the economy and the next generation. The project will investigate institutional designs that encourage women to report VAW and that deliver justice on VAW; the role of information and support in inducing behavioural change among men and women; the likely value of policies addressing proximate causes; and the potential of women’s political mobilisation. It will use natural experiments, analysed with administrative data, and field and lab experiments. The project addresses issues on the frontier of economics research, including inequality, productivity, institutional design, political economy, and legislative reform.
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
