We are seeking to appoint a postdoctoral Researcher in international trade policy to conduct applied and policy research and teaching.
The Institute for International Trade (IIT) is a leading institution with a global focus and a reputation for providing academically rigorous and practical trade training, policy advice and technical assistance relating to international trade policy and practice.

To be successful you will need:
- A PhD (or evidence of submission of PhD thesis for examination) in international trade, economics, development studies with trade specialization, international political economy, or a closely related field;
- Demonstrated research output (publications, conference papers, reports or technical contributions) on current international trade policy issues, providing evidence of research and writing ability;
- Experience developing and conducting qualitative and quantitative research and analysing related data; summarising and preparing technical reports and academic journal articles;
- Ability to work both individually and collaboratively with senior staff to write grant proposals, generate external funding to support the Institute’s research program and develop strong national as well as international collaborations.
- Ability to occasionally contribute to teaching into the Institute’s Masters of International Trade and Development programme.
