Political Science: A Great Paper and a Great Job

By Jens Prüfer

Political science is one of the hallmarks of scholarship at SIOE. We would like to bring your attention to two related products:

  1. Scott Gehlbach (U Chicago and SIOE's 2nd Vice President) just published "The Oligarch Vanishes: Defensive Ownership, Property Rights, and Political Connections" (together with John S. Earle, Solomiya Shpak, and Anton Shirikov). The paper is forthcoming in the Quarterly Journal of Political Science and received the prize for the best article in the field of Ukrainian history, politics, language, literature, and culture by the American Association for Ukrainian Studies. SIOE members could enjoy a presentation of the paper already at the Stockholm conference in 2019. Scott is also director of Chicago’s new Ph.D. Program in Political Economy ... which connects well with the second topic of the day:
  2. The Department of Political Science at the University of Amsterdam invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Political Science with a specialization in Political Economy. The deadline for applications is 27 May 2022 and all details are here.
