Postdoctoral Researcher, Transaction Network Analysis

I am seeking to hire a postdoctoral researcher with interest and skills in the analysis of the structure, evolution, and effects of inter-firm and inter-industry relations.  Support for the position is provided by a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada<> for the project entitled “Using Inter-firm Transaction Networks to Characterize Sector and Value Chain Architectures”.  The project team includes faculty and researchers from the Conrad Centre<mailto:> at the University of Waterloo<mailto:> (Margaret Dalziel), Simon Fraser University (Ian McCarthy, Jon Thomas), and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (Jianxi Luo).

The ideal applicant will be a productive scholar with knowledge of strategy and industrial organization economics, particularly those aspects that inform the emerging industry architecture literature. Experience in social network analysis and working with input-output tables are assets; a PhD, advanced quantitative analysis skills, and exemplary written English are required

The researcher will collaborate on the analysis of a large, longitudinal dataset of the largest inter-firm transactions in the US economy, and on the preparation of publications.  This is a one-year position with a salary of approximately $45,000 CAD, beginning as soon as possible.  Residency in Waterloo, Canada is desired but not essential.  Participation in a major international conference will be supported.

To apply please forward a letter of application describing background, qualifications and research interests, a CV, contact information for three references, and a copy of a recent publication or working paper to Margaret Dalziel ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) by July 15, 2015.

Thank you!
