The University of Copenhagen announces two fully funded postdoc positions (2 years) to commence in 2020 in Food Security and Increased Market Regulation in the Global South (FAIM).
About the research:
- The two positions are part of a broader overall research project aimed at contributing new insights on how the introduction of regulation aimed at creating well-functioning markets affects the poorest groups in the Global South.
- The research project is headed by Professors Henrik Hansen (Co-PI, Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences) and Morten Broberg (PI, Faculty of Law).
- The two postdoc positions will be based within the Faculty of Law, but there is no requirement that the candidates for the two positions have a background in law.
- The two postdoc researchers will carry out fieldwork in the same locations to uncover empirically how formal and informal regulatory measures affect food security in practice.
- Applications are open to candidates in different fields of the Social Sciences – including also candidates who will be able to apply a game theoretical approach to the research questions.
Apply online and the application MUST include the following elements:
- Letter of motivation (a one page document explaining the reasons for applying)
