The Department of Economics at Tilburg University’s School of Economics and Management is seeking to hire two tenure-track Assistant Professors of Economics. Applicants should have outstanding research potential as well as the ability to provide high-quality teaching in economics at the undergraduate and graduate level.  The tenure track positions offer ample opportunities for research as they carry a light teaching load (approximately one course per semester). Positions are for a period of six years; after at most five years a tenure decision is made. The department seeks a diverse workforce and female candidates are prioritized.

Tilburg University is among the top European institutions specializing in social sciences. The Department of Economics has a strong research reputation, with a high-quality graduate school (CentER). We offer competitive European salaries. Researchers from outside the Netherlands can apply for a tax-free allowance equal to 30% of their taxable salary (for the first five years of their stay in the Netherlands). The University offers a generous pension scheme as well as assistance in addressing relocation issues (including finding suitable accommodation).


Application Instructions: 
Applications and accompanying documents should be submitted electronically, using this website

Applications should be submitted preferably before November 3, 2019 (as we start selecting and inviting candidates from that moment onwards), but no later than November 24, 2019. Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, your job market paper, research and teaching statements, at least three reference letters (appraising the applicant's research potential), and, if applicable, teaching evaluations. Please indicate your main field of research in your CV, and include an expression of interest in courses to be taught in your cover letter.

For further questions, please contact the recruitment team at jm-economics@tilburguniversity.edu; please write “TT position inquiry” in the subject field.
