A significant majority of scholars in our department have a background in economics and applied econometrics so we would welcome candidates with similar attributes but we would also consider scholars who could add an additional dimension to our team. Recently, Dr Chris Jones obtained funding via the Leverhulme Trust in relation to his research on the tax avoidance behaviour of MNEs. Hence, an academic with an interest in this area would be highly sort out but not necessarily essential. Candidates who have a background in using firm-level data, for example ORBIS, would also be of interest.
