The International Trade Department within the PREM Network leads the operational trade and export competitiveness work in the Bank, liaising effectively with PREM units in the Regions and with Country Directors to further this operational work program.

• Support the regions by participating in the policy dialogue with client countries and in lending projects initiated by country teams.

• Participate in knowledge sharing and learning activities of the Trade Department, and organize and contribute to dissemination activities, conferences, workshops and learning programs.

• Participate in and expand the scope of partnerships established with other units and organizations active in the area of trade policy and trade competitiveness.

• Advanced degree in relevant fields (economics, trade, industrial organization) required, along with relevant professional experience (minimum of 5 years), including on trade and competitiveness issues.
• Strong analytical skills (quantitative and qualitative) and proven ability to conduct independent policy-relevant research, translate theory into practical applications, and adapt professional knowledge and technical skills to analyze, diagnose and propose solutions to policy issues and challenges;
• Extensive and proven experience with trade analysis using firm heterogeneity concepts and application of these concepts using micro data
• Demonstrated expertise in treating and combining firm-level data from different sources (customs, balance sheet, and census data) and awareness of limits and challenges of analysis through micro-data.
• Proficiency in programming in STATA, and readiness to learn other software packages upon request.
• Proven work experience in at least two of the geographic regions where the World Bank is active would be desirable.
