Researcher, The Oxford Martin Programme on Technological and Economic Change, Grade 6

Researcher, The Oxford Martin Programme on Technological and Economic Change, Grade 6: £27,629 - £32,958 per annum, fixed-term for 2 years

New technologies have the potential to fundamentally disrupt economic growth, investment, savings, consumption, employment, incomes, pensions, careers and productivity. Yet our understanding of what this will mean for the global economy, and how it will impact on markets, cities and societies is, at best, limited.

We are looking for an economist, with at least a Bachelor’s degree qualification to join our research team. Located at the Oxford Martin School, Broad Street, Oxford, the Researcher will undertake a range of duties, including:  academic research and administrative activities, within guidelines provided by Professor Goldin; work independently to identify ways in which disruptive technologies are likely to impact on economies and societies; provide original insights into the impact of new technologies on economies; gather, analyse and present qualitative and/or quantitative data from a variety of sources; and undertake comprehensive and systematic literature reviews and write up the results for publication in peer-reviewed journals and/or for presentation at conferences or public meetings.

Candidates will be required to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of economic literature as it pertains to technological change, experience of using and adapting methodologies, excellent communication skills and an ability to work independently.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 31 May 2017 at 12 noon. To apply, please click here.
