The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) at the UvA provides academic courses for more than 5,000 students in Economics and Business, Actuarial Sciences, Econometrics & Operations Research, Economics of Taxation, and a variety of post-doctoral courses. The Faculty also hosts research programmes in many specialist areas and employs about 400 people. The FEB has an internationally acclaimed profile and is located in the heart of Amsterdam. FEB consists of the Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) and the Amsterdam Business School (ABS). ASE is among the top economics research institutes in Europe. It actively participates in the teaching and research activities of the Tinbergen Institute.

Both vacancies are within the Quantitative Economics section in the ASE. This section hosts three research programmes: Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, UvA-Econometrics, and Equilibrium, Expectations & Dynamics. The section is also responsible for teaching in the BSc programmes Economics, Actuarial Science and Econometrics and the MSc programmes in Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance and Econometrics of the FEB.

Job description

Candidates are expected to equally contribute to research and teaching. Teaching will be at both the undergraduate (BSc) and the graduate (MSc) level and will range from first-year tutorials to supervising MSc theses and possibly PhD courses. A substantial part of the school’s teaching is conducted in English, also at the undergraduate level; non-Dutch speakers are free to teach in English. Research is expected to be aimed at international top journals, in line with the research fellow criteria of the Tinbergen Institute.

Requirements

  • The first position is in the research group Econometrics. For this vacancy, all candidates with a strong background in econometrics or statistics will be taken into consideration. The group wishes to expand its research and teaching in the area of machine learning and data science, so candidates with an expertise in these areas are encouraged to apply in particular. Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics, Econometrics or Statistics.
  • The second position is in the research group Actuarial Science & Mathematical Finance, which concerns risk measurement and management for financial institutions such as pension funds and insurance companies. Applicants should have a PhD in mathematical finance, (applied) mathematics, actuarial science, statistics or econometrics, or expect to obtain such a PhD soon. Since we focus on quantitative aspects of risk measurement, strong mathematical skills are essential. Candidates who have a proven research record in the field of mathematical finance are preferred.

Candidates for both positions will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching. Visibility at relevant international academic conferences and experience in teaching or thesis supervision are highly appreciated.

Further information

Appointment

The selected candidate will be offered a six-year tenure track position as Assistant professor. Upon meeting the criteria for tenure, a permanent contract as Associate professor will be offered.

The gross monthly salary during the first three years will be, depending on experience, between €4,138 and €4,978 (salary scale 11) based on 38 hours per week (+ 16.3% holiday and end-year payments). After a positive evaluation the maximum becomes €5,656 (salary scale 12). This is based on 38 hours per week and in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities, regulating employment conditions at Dutch universities. A substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 30% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme.

The intended start date is 1 September 2019.

Job application

Applications should be made via the Job Openings for Economists Listings of the AEA: see AEA. Also please indicate the particular specialisation (Econometrics or Actuarial Science/Mathematical Finance) in your application.

Risk Labs is designing and developing the Universal Market Access (UMA) protocol: a self-enforcing and permissionless market mechanism for trading financial assets using blockchain technology. How do you design a functioning large-scale decentralized market for financial assets with anonymous participants? Our mission is to make financial markets universally accessible across the world. 

UMA consists of two parts: a provably honest decentralized Oracle, and design patterns for self-enforcing and trustless financial contracts. Examples of use cases for our platform include tokenized financial products like ETFs, futures, and a variety of other synthetic look-alike products that can reference existing digital or fiat assets. With the help of advisors at Stanford (Prof. Christopher Tonetti) and NYU (Prof. Erik Madsen), we use applied mechanism design to build these markets.

We are looking for passionate economists with expertise in applied mechanism design and strong analytical / computer science abilities. We are a small, highly academic team, and offer the unique opportunity for an Economics PhD to join a rapidly growing start up at the ground floor. Interest in blockchain technology and smart contract platforms is a plus. We are backed by the top investors in the space (Placeholder, Bain, Blockchain Capital, Two Sigma Ventures, Coinbase Ventures) and can offer a competitive salary and equity package to the right candidate.

We are seeking applicants with the following attributes: 
- PhD in economics 
- Expertise in applied mechanism design 
- Ability to think creatively and insightfully about business-relevant economics problems 
- Interest in designing markets with real-world constraints in mind 
- Familiarity or interest in blockchain technologies and smart contract platforms 
- Programming skills in C/C++/Java/Python/etc. 
- Enthusiasm for learning and growth

BENEFITS 
- Comprehensive insurance (medical/dental/vision) and 401k 
- Fully-stocked office conveniently located in Soho, NYC
- Take vacation when you need it (and we really mean it)

Risk Labs is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity at our company and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Position Numbers 27187 and 27186

 

The University of Manitoba invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair, a tenured or tenure-track position at the rank of assistant or associate professor, in the area of Health Economics.

 

The Government of Canada has established the CRC program to enable Canadian universities to foster world class research excellence. The proposed CRC aligns with several elements of the University of Manitoba’s Strategic Research Plan, including “Integrative Research in Health and Well-Being” and “Population and Global Health”.

 

The position

The successful candidate will hold an academic appointment with the Department of Community Health Sciences (CHS), Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences (http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/health_sciences/medicine/units/chs/).

 

The Department of Community Health Sciences (CHS) is a research and training-intensive department that has 49 full-time faculty members, including seven Canada Research Chairs, and over 90 graduate students. CHS has active research and educational programs in epidemiology, biostatistics, and the health-related social sciences that aim to create and apply novel concepts and methods of population-based health sciences to the practices of population health, public health, and preventive medicine. We seek a candidate who would fit into one of the following CHS signature research areas: health services, global public health and/or Indigenous health. The candidate will have opportunities to collaborate with researchers within the Department, including those from the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP), the Centre for Global Public Health (CGPH), and Ongomiizwin, the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences’ Indigenous Institute for Health and Healing, as well as researchers from the Department of Economics (Faculty of Arts) and the Asper School of Business.

 

Responsibilities

The successful candidate is expected to develop and lead an independent research program that focuses on building knowledge and research capacity in the economics of the healthcare system, and contribute to teaching and graduate student training within CHS. The candidate will also lead the development of a Health Economics Consulting Unit that could be integrated into the Evaluation Platform of the Centre for Healthcare Innovation. The Chair will have teaching responsibilities at the graduate level, and will be expected to supervise Master’s and PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.

 

Qualifications

The successful candidate must have a doctoral degree in Economics, or in a relevant area such as Health Policy and Planning, with very strong training in health economics. Necessary qualifications for the position include evidence of research quality and productivity appropriate to career stage, as demonstrated by a track record of strong research activity, research funding and academic output, and a record of mentorship of undergraduate, graduate and/or postdoctoral level trainees. Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

 

A successful candidate is expected to be selected no later than July 2019, after which a Tier 2 CRC nomination application will be prepared, and expected to be submitted in October 2019. Chairs are awarded by the Tri-agency Institutional Programs Secretariat after a rigorous evaluation, and award decisions are expected in the spring of 2020. The appointment will be conditional on a successful Canada Research Chair nomination, and is expected to begin on July 1, 2020.

 

Applicants must be exceptional emerging scholars with less than 10 years of experience as a researcher since obtaining their terminal degree at the time of nomination. Tier 2 Chairs are valued at $100,000 per year for 5 years with an option to renew once. New CRC awardees are also eligible for infrastructure support from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). Applicants who are more than 10 years from having earned their highest degree, and where career breaks exist, such as maternity, parental or extended sick leave, clinical training, etc., will have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Chair assessed through the program's Tier 2 justification process. Please contact the UM’s Office of Research Services (researchgrants@umanitoba.ca) office for more information (www.umanitoba.ca/research/ors/).

 

The University acknowledges the potential impact that Career Interruptions and Personal Circumstances can have on an applicant’s record of research achievement. We encourage applicants to explain the impact of any such interruption(s) in their submission. Measures will be taken to ensure that these leaves are given careful consideration during the evaluation process.
