Detail information about job Research Assistant in the Economics of Brexit. Terms and conditions vacancy

The University of Sussex invites applications for a Research Assistant in the Economics of Brexit in the Department of Economics.

In June 2016, the University established the UK Trade Policy Observatory, which (UKTPO) which is an independent expert group that initiates, comments on and analyses trade policy proposals for the UK following Brexit, and offers training to British policy makers, negotiators and other interested parties through tailored training packages.

The UKTPO has a high profile in public debate and good contacts with branches of government dealing with Brexit.

The main work of the holder of this post will be to work with UKTPO Fellows on a series of projects, often requiring the manipulation of data, the systematic searching of text and/or the interpretation of regulations, trade agreements and policy statements.

The objective is to provide a more detailed and informed analysis of the impact on the UK of future possible trading arrangements.

Over the past five years the Department of Economics has expanded considerably as a result of a strategic programme of recruitment aimed at intensifying the quality and depth of our established strengths in applied policy-relevant research.

It seeks researchers with outstanding potential to work in a dynamic economics department which focusses on both research outputs and impact and attracts high quality postgraduate and undergraduate students. 

Candidates should demonstrate potential to conduct high-quality research in the economics of international trade and integration and to be able to communicate it clearly in writing and verbally. They should also have a strong interest in trade policy and able to work closely with colleagues in a fast-moving and exciting area.

Prospective applicants are invited to make informal enquiries with Professor L Alan Winters ([email protected]), Director of the UK Trade Policy Observatory. For more details on the UKTPO see (  and on the Department of Economics see

Closing date:  8 September 2017. Applications must be received by midnight of the closing date.  

The University of Sussex is committed to equality of opportunity
