The Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow is seeking to fill two postdoctoral positions in Economics (Adam Smith Career Development Fellowships). The Economics Subject is entering a new phase of considerable growth and seeks to expand its expertise in several areas of economics, with an emphasis in macroeconomics, environmental, financial, labor, development, and behavioral and experimental economics. For these research-focused posts, we welcome applicants who have the potential to publish in top journals in economics and their respective fields, can actively demonstrate policy relevance of their research findings and capacity of securing research funding. We also expect that the applicants will effectively contribute to the teaching portfolio of the Economics Subject, but the positions will carry a very light teaching load.

These posts complement multiple recent appointments at both early career and experienced levels and will play a key role in further enhancing our research capacity in applied economics (broadly speaking) which is a key strategic priority of the Adam Smith Business School and the University.

We offer a competitive wage, an excellent research environment, and very generous resources and support for developing your career.

These are two-year developmental appointments. These roles do not transition automatically to open-ended contracts at the end of the scheme. However, the School expects that fellows will have opportunities, subject to progress and funding, to pursue open-ended appointments at either the School or externally with other institutions.

For informal inquiries please contact Professor Eugenio Proto ( or Professor Dimitris Christelis (

To be considered for these positions we should receive your application by Thursday, February 23, 2023. We will monitor applications that arrive after this date, but late applications will have a significantly lower chance to lead to an interview.
