POSTDOC IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE FROM APRIL 2021

The AMSE (https://www.amse-aixmarseille.fr/) is inviting applications for one postdoctoral fellowship in economics. The position is within the framework of the TMENA2 project (Terrorism, Radicalization, and Government Policy in MENA), coordinated by Pr. Christophe Muller.

The position is for two years. The starting date is between April and September 2021 and may be negotiable. The gross salary will be between 2,450€/month and 2,800€/month (+ or – 3 years of experience after Phd. Contract copies are required as proof).

Applicants are expected to show outstanding commitment to research and must have obtained their PhD when taking up the position. Only applicants with demonstrated strong empirical skills will be considered.

The TMENA2 project is devoted to the studies of the individual determinants of political protest and radicalization in the MENA region, and their consequences for Europe, the driving mechanisms and internal structure of political organizations and social communities involved in terrorist activities, and the dynamics of social policies and labour market conditions in the MENA region and neighbouring countries. It regroups top-level researchers from both the North and the South side of the Mediterranean area.

The postdoc fellow will work mostly on the TMENA2 project and would be a member of the TMENA2 project team. He/She will be a member of the Aix-Marseille local team.

He/She would also be involved in the academic animation and administration of the project. The assignment may include infrequent travel for workshops in Europe and MENA countries.

The candidate should provide a detailed argument explaining why his/her research would fit well with the TMENA2 project.

We are looking for candidates with a strong empirical record and fluency in applied econometric techniques. Practical knowledge of GIS software is an asset. Candidates that have already estimated models based on microeconomic data in MENA or other Muslim countries will benefit from special attention.
