The Blavatnik School of Government seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for three years to lead the development of this research on the dynamics of public opinion in this area in cooperation with Professor Culpepper and with Professor Taeku Lee from the University of California at Berkeley.


The main duties of the post are to engage in original, world-class research in survey design and data analysis and manage your own academic research and project-related administrative activities; to disseminate your research through publication in highly-ranked, peer reviewed academic journals; to collaborate in the preparation of research publications and book chapters; and to act as a source of information and advice on methodologies and procedures to other members of the team.


The successful postholder will be an independent researcher in the early stages of their career with training in survey research methods and experience designing survey experiments as well as facility in analysing these data. Training and/or experience in experimental design, sampling and measurement theory, conjoint analysis, and causal inference is desirable, as is a substantive interest in political economy, public opinion and regulatory policy. You will have a recent doctorate in political science or another social science field relevant to the project, such as communications, sociology or public policy. Candidates nearing completion of their doctoral dissertation may also be considered. You will show evidence of developing a track record of internationally excellent research worthy of publication in highly-ranked, peer reviewed academic journals, commensurate with the candidate’s career stage; and have knowledge of survey methodology and experience writing and fielding surveys, preferably in comparative context.


The full duties, responsibilities and skills required are described in more detail in the further particulars which also contain details on how to apply.
