Blavatnik School of Government, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford

The Blavatnik School of Government (BSG) and Global Economic Governance Programme (GEG) at the University of Oxford wish to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Global Economic Governance.

Launched in 2010 with a £75 million donation to Oxford by American philanthropist Leonard Blavatnik, the School’s mission is to contribute to better government, stronger communities, and richer human opportunities across the world.

You will undertake original research and publish on the political economy of global banking standards and low-income countries. The post is funded by a grant from the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Department for International Development (DFID). You will work closely with the lead researchers on the project, Professors Emily Jones and Ngaire Woods (Blavatnik School of Government) and Thorsten Beck (Cass Business School).

You will be part of the lively and intellectually stimulating GEG research community which performs to the highest international levels in research and publications, and you will have office space in BSG’s state of the art new building.

You should have a PhD in comparative or international political economy, or a closely related academic discipline. Expertise in finance or the politics of financial regulation in developing countries will be an asset. You will have ability and willingness to undertake independent applied research that has the potential to have impact on public policy and practice and will have evidence of developing a track record of internationally excellent publications. You will have excellent written English and the interpersonal and communication skills necessary to work effectively with academic and non-academic audiences as well as colleagues and policy-makers.

This post is available from 1 April 2016, and is a 2 year fixed-term contract. This is a Grade 7 post on the University salary scale with a research allowance of £1,500 p.a.
