Faculty of Philosophy, Global Priorities Institute, Trajan House, Mill Street, Oxford
Applications are invited for a Pre-doctoral Research Fellow in Economics at the Global Priorities Institute (GPI).
You will conduct Economics research within guidelines provided by the Assistant Director of GPI, as well as contributing to the planning of the Global Priorities Institute's economics research and the organisational development of our research group. You will manage your own research and administrative activities, within guidelines provided by the Assistant Director of the Institute. You will also provide research assistance to GPI researchers and faculty in the Department of Economics. For research assistance, we will try to match the successful candidate with a faculty member at the Department of Economics at Oxford with related research interests, or with another economist affiliated with GPI.
You will be a member of GPI's growing economics research team. GPI sits formally within the Faculty of Philosophy, but you will engage closely with Oxford's Department of Economics, one of the world's leading economics departments. GPI is located in Trajan House in central Oxford, a building shared with the Future of Humanity Institute (another research centre within the Faculty of Philosophy), and the Centre for Effective Altruism. You will have access to open plan desk space in the Department of Economics in addition to workspace at GPI. You will have the opportunity to attend seminars and to enrol in an Economics MPhil graduate option class, subject to approval. The role offers an opportunity for those considering working towards a doctorate in Economics to build invaluable experience in research at a world leading Institution.
The postholder is required to hold a first degree in economics or a closely related discipline together with some relevant knowledge of economics (students in the final year of their undergraduate degree are welcome to apply). Also essential is outstanding academic ability, an ability to manage your own research and excellent communication skills. In addition, the fellow must possess an interest in Global Priorities research and an interest in pursuing economics research at the doctorate level.
The post is fixed-term from the date of appointment for one or two years depending on the successful candidate's preference and is anticipated to start in September 2023 (flexible). Subject to HMRC regulations and the availability of funding, a relocation allowance may be available to support with a move to Oxford.
If you have any questions about the position, please get in touch with gpi- [email protected]
Applications for this post are to be made online and should be submitted no later than 12 noon on 6 January 2023.
