So, I am, along with some colleagues, interested in taking on some postdoc fellows under the Marie Curie programme.
One would be on a project on the the global determinants of metal and other critical mineral production. The main thrust is to examine the relationship between mineral production costs and mineral prices, investigating which leads which and in what regard.
The second is to address the matter of higher education institutions within the framework of local regional development objectives of maximizing employment, output and FDI investment potential as part of a suite of supply-side policies. The aim is for the candidate to work towards an analysis of the local Irish context and subsequently aim to make a series of comparisons with other similar regions of the European Union.
Candidates should have a phd in economics, with ag/resource economics a boon for the first and economic geography/regional studies for the second.
If you are possibly interested, let me know by email, with a compresensive CV, letter of interest, and a sample of recent research.
