The Center for Commercial Diplomacy (CCD) at UC San Diego's School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) invites applications for two postdoctoral scholar employee positions from individuals with a Ph.D. degree or who expect to receive a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 academic year.

These awards are designed to promote high-quality research on the challenges and institutions of international economic diplomacy in a changing world. Research projects that seek to understand the causes and consequences of the institutions of economic globalization (e.g. GATT/WTO, FTAs, BITs, IMF, World Bank, Fast-Track, TPA, RTAA, etc) are particularly welcome. Commercial diplomats operate within a set of domestic and international institutions that governs their behavior in international negotiations. Postdoctoral research on the institutions of economic globalization can help answer questions about the welfare and distributional consequences of these institutions and, ultimately, result in the better design of these institutions.

Outstanding scholars anywhere in the world are eligible to apply. The Center invites applications from candidates with a background in economics, political science, economic history, legal history, and other disciplines bearing on the study of economic diplomacy. Selected candidates will be required to be in residence for the duration of the appointment, health conditions permitting, and to interact with faculty and Ph.D students, giving at least one research talk. Selected postdoctoral scholars are also expected to attend CCD events and related seminars, and to post their research on the CCD website.

Applicants are required to hold a Ph.D. by September 1, 2021 in one of the above mentioned disciplines.

To apply, please provide the below by email to Lisa Lee at
1. Cover letter explaining the candidate's scholarly career, prospective or actual doctoral defense date, and academic interests.
2. Current curriculum vitae including publications.
3. One writing sample (limit of 100 pages).
