The University of Stavanger Business School is seeking candidates for up to two postdoctoral positions in economics, each with a duration of 3 or 4 years. We will consider candidates working within the fields of macroeconomics, growth, trade, industrial organization, development economics, public economics or natural resource economics, who can contribute to strengthen our research group in applied economics. A strong research background is desirable, including the ability or potential to publish in highly recognised international journals. Candidates with a background in empirical analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.

We offer a low teaching load, funding for research and international conference travel, generous benefits and a competitive salary. The positions are associated with a research project on the effects of public policies or structural shocks on the (mis)allocation of labor and capital, and those hired will be part of a research group at the UiS Business School and its international network.

To be considered for an online interview, please apply below. Formal applications to be evaluated by an external expert committee will be collected shortly after the initial interviews.

Women are especially encouraged to apply.
