Research Assistant (PhD Student) (m/f/d) Understanding Eurasian Regionalism – Actorness and Interaction in Economy and Society
65 %-part-time job, limited to 3 years, Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU Kennung: WiMi-OEI-Regionalism-E
The research and teaching of the chair of politics of the Institute of East European Studies covers the entire spectrum of political processes and institutions in Eastern Europe and in the post-Soviet Eurasia (with a special emphasis on Russia). Its main focus is in the comparative research on authoritarianism: how do authoritarian regimes in the post-Communist world function? What is the difference between these regimes and autocracies in other parts of the world? Which factors lead to consolidation of authoritarian regimes, their collapse and democratization? The research of the chair deals with both emergence and collapse of authoritarian regimes and their internal dynamics and transformation. The political science core of the research is augmented by approaches of other social science disciplines, in particular economics.
Applications are invited for the position of a research assistant (m/f/d) (65 % part-time job) within the framework of a project on ”Understanding Eurasian Regionalism – Actorness and Interaction in Economy and Society” (co-directed by Prof. Dr. Andrea Gawrich (University of Gießen) and Prof. Dr. Alexander Libman) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The goal of the project is to study regional organization in Eurasia (Eurasian Economic Union, Commonwealth of Independent States, GUAM, Shanghai Cooperation Organization etc.) from the perspective of comparative regionalism. The project aims to investigate whether regional organizations should be perceived as independent actors or merely execute the foreign policy objectives of the most powerful state.

Systematization of the relevant literature and participation in the development of the conceptual research framework.
Empirical analysis and fieldwork related to the topic of the project.
Statistical analysis of datasets generated within the framework of the project.

The project allows the successful applicant to pursue PhD studies in Political Science at Freie Universität Berlin.
A university degree (MA or equivalent) in a field relevant for the project (political science, economics etc.).
Very good knowledge of Russian and English (knowledge of German is not required).
Good knowledge of empirical methods of social science research and/or willingness to obtain this knowledge within the framework of the project.
Application should include the usual documents (CV, motivation letter, certificates), as well as a short summary of a research idea fitting the framework of the project (max. 3 pages).
Applications should be sent no later than May 31st, 2021 by email, together with significant documents, indicating the reference code, in PDF format (preferably as one document) to Mr. Prof. Dr. Alexander Libman: email@example.com.
