Job description

The Department of Economics invites applicants for 2-3 positions, either tenure-track (Assistant Professor or Associate Professor) or tenured Associate Professor. The positions are general research positions including teaching and administrative duties. We encourage applications in all areas in economics and finance. For one of the positions we are especially looking for candidates with a background in economic theory.

A tenure-track position is a fulltime position for a period of seven years, including teaching duties and some administration. A formal midway evaluation will be held in the fourth year of the tenure-track period. At the end of the fixed-term period, the candidate will be evaluated for a tenured position according to the Department’s criteria, specified in the employment contract.

Associate Professors with tenure may apply for promotion to a professorship according to the guidelines of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

More about the position

We are looking for candidates with potential for outstanding research and teaching of high quality.

The assessment of applicants is based on scientific merits, research potential, teaching, research leadership, administrative experience and personal qualities. The Department's teaching obligations and long-term academic development, and the overall complementarity with other employees, will also be of importance. Personal suitability will be emphasized. 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 for a tenure-track position (Assistant Professor (Postdoctoral Fellow) SKO1352 or Associate Professor position SKO1011) shoud have achieved a PhD degree no earlier than 2018 (additional time may be allowed for leave related to childbirth or adoption), or expect to complete a PhD no later than 30 September 2023. Successful completion of a doctoral degree is a prerequisite for taking up the position. Candidates who have worked in a postdoctoral or research position for more than one year will be evaluated for a tenure-track Associate Professor position.

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

Women are encouraged to apply.

We offer

Salary NOK 661 400 - 714 900 per annum depending on qualifications in the tenured-track Assistant Professor position.

Salary NOK 714 900 - 765 600 per annum depending on qualifications in the tenured-track Associate Professor position.
