The Department of Economics invites applicants for a tenure-track position (Assistant Professor or Associate Professor) or tenured Associate Professor position in Economics, with specialization in microeconomics. The Department is looking for candidates capable of doing high quality research in economic theory, or applied microeconomic theory (e.g. public economics, environmental economics or industrial organization), and who have an interest and ability for mutually beneficial interaction with colleagues doing applied and empirical work.

A tenure-track position is a fulltime position for a period of seven years. The candidate will then be evaluated for a tenured position according to the Department’s criteria.

We are looking for candidates with potential for outstanding research and teaching of high quality. For candidates to a tenured position, the assessment will emphasize the performance over the last five years, and the tenure requirements for the tenure-track position will be informative.

Candidates are asked to specify whether they apply for a tenure-track or tenured position, or both.

Candidates for a tenure-track position should have achieved a PhD degree no earlier than 2019 (additional time may be allowed for leave related to childbirth or adoption), or expect to complete a PhD no later than 30 September 2024.

The deadline for applications is November 25, 2023. Applications should be submitted via www.econjobmarket.org and should include a cover letter, CV, three letters of reference, a job market paper (clearly labeled) as well as other papers (optional). Interviews will be conducted online, around the time of the European Job Market 11-14 December. We will invite a limited number of candidates for job talks/campus visits in January or early February.
