Postdoctoral Scholar Employee Positions, The Center for Commerce and Diplomacy (CCD)

Department: School of Global Policy and Strategy

Salary: Commensurate with experience

Appointment: 12 months (extendable based on mutual agreement and available funding)

Start Date: September 2021

The Center for Commercial Diplomacy (CCD) at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) invites applications for two postdoctoral scholar employee positions from individuals with a Ph.D. degree or who expect to receive a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 academic year.

These awards are designed to promote high-quality research on the challenges and institutions of international economic diplomacy in a changing world. Research projects that seek to understand the causes and consequences of the institutions of economic globalization (e.g. GATT/WTO, FTAs, BITs, IMF, World Bank, Fast-Track, TPA, RTAA, etc) are particularly welcome. Commercial diplomats operate within a set of domestic and international institutions that governs their behavior in international negotiations. But we know little about the specifics of these rules and procedures, how they came into being, how they vary over time and across countries, and how they affect economic outcomes. Postdoctoral research on the institutions of economic globalization can help answer questions about the welfare and distributional consequences of these institutions and, ultimately, result in the better design of these institutions.

Outstanding scholars anywhere in the world are eligible to apply. The Center invites applications from candidates with a background in economics, political science, economic history, legal history, and other disciplines bearing on the study of economic diplomacy. Selected candidates will be required to be in residence for the duration of the appointment, health conditions permitting, and to interact with faculty and Ph.D students, giving at least one research talk. Selected postdoctoral scholars are also expected to attend CCD events and related seminars, and to post their research on the CCD website.

Applicants are required to hold a Ph.D. by September 1, 2021 in one of the above mentioned disciplines.

To apply, please provide the below by email to Lisa Lee at lisalee@ucsd.edu

1. Cover letter explaining the candidate's scholarly career, prospective or actual doctoral defense date, and academic interests.

2. Current curriculum vitae including publications.

3. One writing sample (limit of 100 pages).

4. Three letters of recommendation sent directly to Lisa Lee at lisalee@ucsd.edu

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but it is highly recommended that you apply before May 15, 2021 for full consideration.

UC San Diego is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

  • Carry out more general teaching, training, and supervision tasks within the capacity-building programme of UNU-WIDER, including guidance of junior researchers and PhD students.
  • Contribute to communications and dissemination activities for UNU-WIDER’s target audiences.
  • Perform any other tasks as assigned by the Director.
Required qualifications and experience

  • Progressively responsible relevant postgraduate work experience. Proven track record in econometric analysis is required.
  • Experience in project management as well as in leading large dataset preparation and curation work is required. Prior experience in building and running a data lab is desirable.
  • Experience in capacity building with developing countries partners is required.
  • Excellent drafting skills and fluency in both oral and written English; knowledge of French, Portuguese, Spanish, or Arabic would be an asset.
  • Excellent team player with strong interpersonal skills and ability to work independently in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic environment with sensitivity and respect for diversity.
  • Readiness to travel internationally, including extended stays in developing countries when collaborating with local partners.
Remuneration

UNU offers an attractive, tax exempt compensation package including an annual net salary at P-2 level and post adjustment, which reflects the cost of living in a particular duty station and exchange rates (subject to mandatory deductions for pension contributions and health insurance). Other benefits include: 30 days annual leave, dependency benefits, pension plan and health insurance scheme.

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION/0059/2021

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE OPENING OF AN INTERNATIONAL SELECTION TENDER PROCEDURE FOR DOCTORATE HIRING

PURSUANT TO DECREE-LAW NO. 57/ 2016 OF 29 AUGUST

Internal Reference: CUBE-PhD-28596-2

1. Framework

The Rector of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Prof. Dr. Isabel Capeloa Gil, hereby announces an international selection tender for one vacancy of doctorate junior researcher to perform duties of scientific research, on an exclusivity basis, in the scientific field of Economics, to be carried out at CUBE - Católica Lisbon Research Unit in Business and Economics - GES/00407, integrated at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in Lisbon, for the development of research in the project “PTDC/EGE-ECO/28596/2017” entitled “Rethinking Fiscal Policy in the Global Economy”, a project financed by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, I.P. (FCT,IP) through national funds.

This project started on August 26th 2018 and it was predicted to last 36 months until August 25th 2021, but it is expected to be extended for a minimum period of 12 months. The contract resulting from this selection tender should start in August or September, with an expected duration of 10 months (duration of the activities) which will never, under any circumstances, exceed the duration of the project.

This project aims at addressing the following five related policy questions: In a world with increasing inequality, should capital income be taxed in order to distribute to labor? In a world where labor is threatened by automation, how should machines be treated in fiscal terms? In a world in which globalization also appears to be a threat to labor, should trade be taxed away? In a world with increasing uncertainty, how does uncertainty affect the optimal taxation of capital and labor? A good part of the wealth of households is in residential property. Should housing be treated for fiscal purposes just like capital or should housing services be taxed, just like any other consumption good?

We seek a junior doctoral researcher, i.e. a Ph.D. holder with limited post-doctoral experience, to work at Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics. The researcher will work in collaboration with faculty developing research projects in the context of the PTDC/EGE-ECO/28596/2017 project. The researcher will contribute with research work, with a focus on rigorous quantitative analysis of modern macroeconomic models with heterogeneity and will work under the coordination of Professor Pedro Miguel Pinho de Teles, Full Professor at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics. The position is ideal for an individual pursuing an academic career and wishing to gain further research experience and develop the academic publication record. Successful candidates should have strong quantitative and programming skills, with previous experience in advanced solution methods of complex macroeconomic models.

2. Applicable Legislation

Decree-Law no. 57/2016 of 29 August, amended by Law no. 57/2017 of 19 July, which approved the doctorate hiring regime destined to stimulate scientific and technological employment for all knowledge areas (RJEC), without prejudice to the specific regulations applicable to the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
