Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Labour Politics

Postdoctoral Research Fellow Level 1 in Labour Politics and the EU’s New Economic Governance Regime (full-time, 3 years)

UCD School of Business & Geary Institute for Public Policy

The candidates should hold a PhD in Industrial Relations, Political Sciences, Sociology, Social Anthropology, European studies, or cognate disciplines and have research experience in the fields of European labour politics, EU governance, transnationalism, trade unions or social movements.

Salary: €37,223 – €43,029 per annum

Closing date: 2 May 2019, 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time)

Starting date: 1 September 2019

Applications are invited for a temporary 3-year, full-time postdoctoral appointment in European integration and employment relations, starting on 1st September 2019 or by agreement.

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 health care sectors respond to the EU’s new economic governance regime. Until very recently, European labour politics has been shaped mainly by EU ‘horizontal’ market integration through the free movement of goods, capital, services, and people. Since the Euro crisis, however, 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. 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 an academic research role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will also carry out the following duties specific to this project:

  • Contribute to research-led teaching (15% of working time).
  • Contribute to the analysis of the EU’s NEG interventions in the area of wage bargaining and the provision of public services (health care, water, and transport services); and the  activities of selected national and EU-level trade unions and social movements in response to them.
