Post-Doctoral Research Associate in International
The Georg W. Leitner Program in International and Comparative Political Economy, a multidisciplinary program of the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, seeks to appoint a postdoctoral research associate for academic year 2013-14 with possibility of renewal. The position involves working with Professor Thad Dunning on a wide range of research projects including, but not limited to, studies of distributive politics, the political economy of development, and ethnic politics. Responsibilities will vary but likely include assisting with the design and implementation of original surveys, implementation of experimental and quasi-experimental research designs, other data collection and management, fieldwork, and preliminary data analysis. The position will be based at Yale but may involve extensive travel to international research sites. Technical skills such as computer programming are highly desirable as is some coursework in political economy. Excellent organizational skills, experience using computer databases and statistical software, and coursework in statistical methods are essential. Project management experience, ability to conduct research in various languages, and field research experience in Latin America, Africa, or India is a plus. Doctorate is required. Salary is negotiable. Health benefits are covered. Yale University is an equal opportunity-affirmative action employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty, and strongly encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a brief writing sample, research statement, and a list of references with contact information to the Leitner Program through academic jobs on-line .
