Recruitment

We are recruiting for the following positions:

 

PhD in Marketing and Market Studies

Applications are sought from candidates interested in pursuing a PhD in Marketing/Market Studies. Candidates will be based on the main University College Dublin campus, Belfield, and will be registered for the doctoral programme within UCD’s College of Business.  The programme of research in which the PhD candidate will engage will form part of the European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator project ‘MISFIRES’.  For more information please click here.

 

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1

Applications are invited for a 2-year-long fixed term postdoctoral appointment in the sociology of markets.

Successful candidates will be members of a new ERC funded research team for a project entitled “‘Misfires and Market Innovation: Toward a Collaborative Turn in Organising Markets”.

The project refocuses the issues of market failures and market design from economic principles of supply and demand towards collaboration and participation. It will investigate problems and concerns in biomedical markets, such as overpricing, limited access to medicines and data privacy issues, and establish how alternative markets or market instruments could be conceived to solve these problems.

The successful candidate will carry out fieldwork in one or two specific biomedical markets, using digital and ethnographic, archival or participatory research methods. These include markets in antiretroviral drugs, Hepatitis C medication, consumer genomics and others. Cases will be chosen in conjunction with the Principal Investigator.  For more information please click here.

 

Research Fellow

Applications are invited for a 4-year fixed term appointment at Research Fellow level.

The successful candidate will be a member of a new ERC funded research team for a five year project entitled “‘Misfires and Market Innovation: Toward a Collaborative Turn in Organising Markets”. The project refocuses the issues of market failures and market design from economic principles of supply and demand towards collaboration and participation. It will investigate problems and concerns in biomedical markets, such as overpricing, limited access to medicines and data privacy issues, and establish how collaborative market instruments could be conceived to solve these problems. The project will ask how market failures in biomedical markets can be identified and diagnosed and how government bodies, medical and pharmaceutical industries, patient groups and other actors can work together to address these misfires.

Together with the Principal Investigator, you will design, direct and conduct a specified programme of research and scholarship for the MISFIRES project.  For more information, please click here.
