The EUI has a vacancy for a Research Assistant in the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies.
The Research Assistant will conduct research on the political economy and economic governance in the MENA region, with a particular focus on war-torn (e.g. Syria and Libya) and neighbouring countries. The research will focus primarily on: the conflict- related fragmentation of economies and markets; smuggling and informal trade networks and their relationship with local militias and community governance in the absence of a functioning central government; forms of integration in neighbouring national economies by some local economies; border economic permeability and its impact on territorial control. S/he will produce scientific publications and reports, organise events, workshops and trainings, participate in project meetings and carry out fieldwork missions.
