Postdoctoral Research Fellow - WEALTHPOL - The Politics of Wealth Inequality and Mobility in the Twenty-first Century

Grade 7: £31,076 p.a.

The Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford is looking for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join a research team to work on an exciting new project directed by Professor Ben Ansell, the Project Investigator (PI), and supported by the European Research Council (ERC).

The project examines political causes and consequences of wealth inequality across the industrialised world. The project divides into three core work packages, which are to be accomplished over the life of the grant. The first two work packages are macro data collection exercises assembling cross-nationally and historically comparable surveys of wealth mobility outcomes and policies. The last work package focuses on the micro-foundations of attitudes towards wealth mobility using both laboratory and survey experiments.
