Part-time Researcher

Applications for this vacancy closed on 4 January 2021 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. The main project team based in
Oxford comprises Professor Ariel Ezrachi, Dr Christopher Decker and Mr. Amit
Zac. The project webpage can be found here:https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/effect-
competition-policy-economic-inequality



We are seeking to appoint an economic researcher 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 empirical
techniques and models used as part of the project. The post holder will report
to Dr. Christopher Decker.



The successful candidate will 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; select, follow, and adapt specialist methodologies to
confirm or refute theories related to literature on economic inequality;
identify suitable data alternatives where the data collected by the team is
still limited, including the identification of new sources of data and
contribute to the design of research techniques, revamping the modelling and
estimation strategy for the overarching research question(s) of the project.



The postholder should have an interest in the issues of economic inequality
and ‎competition economics and policy and will be expected to participate
fully and ‎enthusiastically with the project team and steering committee; 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 working with statistical programmes such as R, Stata
and/or Python and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to
work within established research programmes.



The post holder will be expected to begin work on 1 February 2021. The post is
fixed term until 31 January 2022 and offered on a part time basis for 2 days
per week (15 hours or 0.4 FTE)



You will need to submit a CV and covering letter as part of your application.



Please arrange for two references to be sent to recruitment@law.ox.ac.uk by
the closing date.



The closing date for applications is midday on 4 January 2021. Interviews are
to be held on Friday, 8 January 2021.
