Prof Jane Green appointed Gwilym Gibbon Senior Research Fellow at Nuffield College and DPIR

21st Sep 2018

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Jane Green as Gwilym Gibbon Senior Research Fellow at Nuffield College and the Department of Politics and International Relations. She will also hold a Professorial Fellowship at Nuffield College.

Prof Green is the Director of Gwilym Gibbon Centre for Public Policy; Co-Director of the British Election Study; Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences; Affiliate of the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science. Previously, she was Professor of Political Science in the Cathy Marsh Institute for Social Research and the Politics Department at the University of Manchester, and a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University, Minda de Gunzburg Centre for European Studies in 2016, and at the University of California at Berkeley in 2007. She holds a DPhil in Politics from the University of Oxford (Nuffield College).

Her research interests are in public opinion and electoral behaviour, especially relating to competence and reward-punishment voting and blame. Her research is characterised by long-term contextual explanations of political choice, and over-time variation in public opinion - and their implications for politics, broadly defined.

She is an Election Analyst for ITV News, a regular commentator on national media, and was winner of the Political Studies Association Research Communicator of the Year (2015). In 2015 Prof Green was a member of the inquiry into the 2015 opinion polls, and she has given evidence to House of Lords and House of Commons committees.

The Gwilym Gibbon Centre for Public Policy, part of Nuffield College, conducts research into public policy issues and British politics. It aims to combine the rigour of academe with the timetable required by policymakers, and to submit evidence in support of policy choices.

Prof Green said, “It is essential to understand the causes and profound consequences of major social, economic and political changes in such an important and tumultuous period in British politics. I am excited about the opportunities to do that here in Oxford, and to build bridges between policy and political practitioners and academia”.
