Title: Assistant Professor Empirical Economics/Econometrics

  • Employer: Tilburg University (Department of Econometrics and Operations Research)
  • Location: Netherlands
  • Position Type: Assistant Professor
  • Deadline: Dec 3, 2017

  • Job Description:

    The Department of Econometrics and OR of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management at Tilburg University is looking for an Assistant Professor to strengthen our econometrics group. This group brings together about 20 faculty interested in applied and theoretical econometrics and closely collaborates with the Department of Economics, the Department of Finance and the Department of Marketing. Research interests range from health and labor economics over structural econometrics to classical work in econometric theory. There is a long standing tradition in Tilburg that emphasizes applied relevance and methodological rigor. More recently, we have increasingly been interested in the intersection between data science and econometrics.

    Candidates in all areas of Econometrics, Applied (Micro-) Economics, Statistics, Data Science/Big Data, or a related field will be given serious consideration.

    We offer a US-style 6-year tenure track position, with starting date September 2018 or a mutually agreed date. This position carries a light teaching load (approximately one course per semester) and teaching is in English. After about five years, a tenure decision is made.

    Tilburg University offers competitive European salaries, including a yearly holiday allowance and a year-end bonus. Moreover, new colleagues who join us from outside the Netherlands can apply for tax-free allowance equal to 30% of their taxable salary. The University also offers a generous pension scheme, a moving and relocation package, and training and development opportunities. The School will provide assistance in finding suitable accommodation and in other relevant relocation issues.
