Research Assistant in Labour Politics
Research Assistant in Labour Politics and the EU’s New Economic Governance Regime
Applications are invited for a 2-year fixed-term, full-time Research Assistant in European integration and employment relations, starting on 1 October 2020.
You will be a member of our ERC funded research team on the EU’s new economic governance regime (NEG) and the contradictory trajectories for trade unions and social movements it is opening. The ERC project focuses on the way in which European trade unions and new social movements in the public transport, water, and healthcare sectors respond to NEG at the EU level as well as in Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Romania. Until recently, EU labour politics has been shaped mainly by horizontal market integration through the free movement of goods, capital, services, and people. Since the Euro crisis, the latter has been complemented by ‘vertical’ hierarchical integration effected through the direct surveillance of member states’ macroeconomic policies, including industrial relations and public services provision (Erne 2018). The resulting new EU economic governance regime (NEG) opens contradictory possibilities for labour politics in Europe. Are unions and social movements politicising NEG along national or (transnational) class divides?
This is a research assistant role where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by training and development under the supervision and direction of the Principal Investigator (PI). In particular, the successful candidate will assist the PI in analysing collective action of trade unions and social movements, the COVID-19 emergency, and their feedback effects on NEG and labour politics at the EU-level as well as Germany, Ireland, Italy, or Romania.
Salary: €22,609 – €35,218 per annum
