PhD Researcher Position

Applications now open for a PhD student to join the team

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3 year PhD (DPhil) studentship in the Oxford University Department of Politics and International Relations, to begin in October 2018, joining a research team working on an ERC-funded project under Professor Ben Ansell.

The successful candidate will be a member of the team working on ‘WEALTHPOL: The Politics of Wealth Inequality in the Twenty-First Century’. This project will conduct new research on the inequalities of wealth in the twenty-first century, collecting data, running novel experiments, and building an original policy database in order to examine wealth inequality and social mobility, shedding light on the ways in which governments have tried to shape wealth through policy. The successful DPhil candidate will be expected to work on all three work packages of the project as well as pursue their own related research.

Applications are welcome from candidates with an excellent undergraduate degree and a relevant Master’s degree. The deadline for application is Monday 8 January 2018. For information on how to apply, click here.
