Part-time Economic Researcher (Wealth Distribution)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 18 March 2020 at 12:00PM
Oxford University is undertaking a major research project funded by the
Leverhulme Trust which seeks to explore the effects that competition law might
have on wealth distribution. The project's overarching aim is to develop a
better, and empirically grounded, understanding of the ways in which
competition law legislation, and its enforcement, might materially affect the
distribution of wealth and economic inequality. Reflecting the
interdisciplinary and innovative nature of the research, the project comprises
a mix of specialists in law and economics.



We are seeking to appoint one or two economic researchers on a part-time basis
to join our team and work with us on this exciting and ambitious project. The
researcher will primarily assist in developing and applying the econometric
techniques and models used as part of the project. The postholder will report
to Dr Christopher Decker.



The role holder will be expected to manage their own research and
administrative activities, within guidelines provided by colleagues within the
research group, and contribute to wider project planning, including ideas for
new research directions; identify relevant case studies for analysis,
including using ‘natural experiment' settings; select, follow and adapt
specialist methodologies to confirm or refute theories related to literature
on economic inequality and identify suitable data alternatives where the data
collected by the team is still limited, including the identification of new
sources of data.



The successful candidate must have a postgraduate degree in a related field,
such as economics and/or political science, and may be working towards a
doctorate; extensive knowledge and proven experience of cross-country analysis
using large panel datasets in statistical programmes such as R and Stata;
experience of empirical analysis of heterogeneous and sparse datasets; the
ability to implement and apply economic models at different scales (country,
industry, household level) and demonstrable capability to devise and implement
innovative modelling solutions.



The post is fixed-term for 12 months and offered on a part-time basis for 2
days per week (15 hours or 0.4 FTE) or it may be possible to appoint two
people at 0.2 FTE (7.5 hours per week).



Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Wednesday 18 March 2020.
Interviews are to be held as soon as possible after the closing date.
