The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) at the UvA provides academic courses for more than 5,000 students in Economics and Business, Actuarial Sciences, Econometrics & Operations Research, Economics of Taxation, and a variety of post-doctoral courses. The Faculty also hosts research programmes in many specialist areas and employs about 400 people. The FEB has an internationally acclaimed profile and is located in the heart of Amsterdam. FEB consists of the Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) and the Amsterdam Business School (ABS). ASE is among the top economics research institutes in Europe. It actively participates in the teaching and research activities of the Tinbergen Institute.

Both vacancies are within the Quantitative Economics section in the ASE. This section hosts three research programmes: Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, UvA-Econometrics, and Equilibrium, Expectations & Dynamics. The section is also responsible for teaching in the BSc programmes Economics, Actuarial Science and Econometrics and the MSc programmes in Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance and Econometrics of the FEB.

Job description

Candidates are expected to equally contribute to research and teaching. Teaching will be at both the undergraduate (BSc) and the graduate (MSc) level and will range from first-year tutorials to supervising MSc theses and possibly PhD courses. A substantial part of the school’s teaching is conducted in English, also at the undergraduate level; non-Dutch speakers are free to teach in English. Research is expected to be aimed at international top journals, in line with the research fellow criteria of the Tinbergen Institute.

Requirements

  • The first position is in the research group Econometrics. For this vacancy, all candidates with a strong background in econometrics or statistics will be taken into consideration. The group wishes to expand its research and teaching in the area of machine learning and data science, so candidates with an expertise in these areas are encouraged to apply in particular. Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics, Econometrics or Statistics.
  • The second position is in the research group Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, which concerns risk measurement and management for financial institutions such as pension funds and insurance companies. Applicants should have a PhD in mathematical finance, (applied) mathematics, actuarial science, statistics or econometrics, or expect to obtain such a PhD soon. Since we focus on quantitative aspects of risk measurement, strong mathematical skills are essential. Candidates who have a proven research record in the field of mathematical finance are preferred.

Candidates for both positions will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching. Visibility at relevant international academic conferences and experience in teaching or thesis supervision are highly appreciated.

Further information

Appointment

The selected candidate will be offered a six-year tenure track position as Assistant professor. Upon meeting the criteria for tenure, a permanent contract as Associate professor will be offered.

The gross monthly salary during the first three years will be, depending on experience, between €4,138 and €4,978 (salary scale 11) based on 38 hours per week (+ 16.3% holiday and end-year payments). After a positive evaluation the maximum becomes €5,656 (salary scale 12). This is based on 38 hours per week and in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities, regulating employment conditions at Dutch universities. A substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 30% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme.

The intended start date is 1 September 2019.

Job application

Applications should be made via the Job Openings for Economists Listings of the AEA: see AEA. Also please indicate the particular specialisation (Econometrics or Actuarial Science/Mathematical Finance) in your application.

Applicants should provide their CV, two reference letters, a research paper, information about their teaching experiences, and a cover letter describing their research and teaching interests.

The closing date is 28 November 2018.

Interviews will be conducted at the ASSA-AEA meetings in Atlanta, GA, January 2019.

Candidates that cannot attend these meetings are also invited to apply.

Postdoc on the economics of climate change and climate policy at the Institute for Futures Studies in Stockholm

The Institute for Futures Studies, Stockholm, is looking for a postdoc to conduct research on the economics of climate change and climate policy. The position is part of the research program “Climate Ethics and Future Generations”. Funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences), this interdisciplinary program is led by Prof. Gustaf Arrhenius (principal investigator), Prof. Krister Bykvist and Prof. Göran Duus-Otterström (co-principal investigators). The main aim of the program is to provide guidance on climate policy in light of the intergenerational nature of climate change. The program investigates questions as diverse as population ethics, normative uncertainty, intergenerational equity and justice, democracy and future generations, and environmental attitudes. You can find a more detailed description of the research program here: https://climateethics.se/.

Job description

The advertised postdoc is expected to use tools and lessons from economic theory to address questions such as: What is optimal population size? How much, if at all, should we discount the welfare of future generations? How should such a discount rate be used in Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs)? What is the optimal division of burdens and benefits of combating climate change? How should the possibility of catastrophes be incorporated into economic evaluations of climate change? How should issues of fairness and equity be incorporated into Integrated Assessment Models?

The advertised position is a 2+2-year appointment with a preferred starting date on September 1 2019, the extension depending on performance.

The applicant needs to hold, or be close to completing, a PhD in economics or a related subject (such as decision, social choice, or game theory, operation research, risk analysis). It will be considered an advantage to have worked on a topic related to climate change and climate policy.

The successful candidate is expected to spend 70 % of his or her time on research on a topic relevant to the economics of climate change and climate policy. 30 % of the time will be spent on more administrative tasks, such as planning and organizing conferences and workshops, and editing books and papers. Emphasis will therefore be put on administrative experience (including management skills).

The successful candidate is expected to work on-site in Stockholm for most of the year. The working language at the Institute for Futures Studies is English.

Application

We need:

·      a letter of application

·      a research proposal (maximum 3 pages) that outlines the research you intend to conduct and how that will relate to the research program

·      an up-to-date CV

·      three examples of your written work

·      names and contact information of three persons who are familiar with you and your work.

Please send your application to jobs@iffs.se no later than April 1, 2019. Interviews (if necessary) will take place in April 2019, either in Stockholm or via Skype.

Further information regarding this position may be obtained from Orri Stefansson (orri.stefansson@iffs.se).

For information regarding the Institute for Futures Studies, see www.iffs.se, or contact Christina Alwert, christina.alwert@iffs.se.

We look forward to applications from all sexes and birth backgrounds, functionalities and life experiences.

For this position we already have the recruitment support we need and ask that you do not contact us in this matter.

The Institute for Futures Studies carries out interdisciplinary research on important future issues and participates in the public discussion with its seminar and publication activities. Under the management of Director Gustaf Arrhenius (Professor of Moral and Political Philosophy), over eighty researchers from various disciplines work with future studies and long-term analysis.
