Job Description

DESCRIPTION
The Program in Corporate Welfare Studies at the University of California Irvine is seeking one or two postdoctoral researchers. The researcher would conduct his or her own research on corporate welfare, broadly defined as the causes and consequences of governmental policies that affect particular firms. Examples of research supported by the Program include how regulations on airline pilot hours affect airline behavior, how the bailouts of banks deemed too large to fail affect different firms, the influence of tax incentives on firms’ decisions of where to locate, and how political pressures can affect the behavior of firms. The postdoctoral researcher would spend most of the time conducting his or her own research. PhD students and undergraduates may be available to support the research. The researcher would also participate in related workshops, and would assist selected students in their research.

The initial full-time position will be for one year with the possibility of funding for an additional year. The annual pay is $60,000, plus benefits. Funding is available for conference presentations. Further information about the program is at http://socsci.uci.edu/corporatewelfare.
