About HEC Liège

HEC Liège is the Management School of the University of Liège (ULiège). Located at the heart of Europe and at the crossing of the major axes of the Euregio, ULiège, as a comprehensive university, is one of the major employers in and around Liège. Its several sites generate over 5,500 direct jobs, i.e. 3,600 lecturers and researchers plus approximately 2,000 management, administrative and technical staff members who altogether meet the day-to-day needs of the institution while addressing the challenges of today's fast-evolving world.

ULiège prides itself on a genuine international dimension. The university is an active partner of a network of over 900 universities promoting the exchange of students, researchers and skills. As one of its faculties, HEC Liège is one of the leading Belgian management schools hosting graduate and postgraduate study programmes. The School counts 110 full-time faculty members and researchers and over 3,200 students, and promotes an empowering pedagogy leading students to play a proactive part in their education. The School's international vision takes a variety of forms: multiple research activities in management and economics, numerous partnerships with worldwide companies and universities, an OpenBordersMBA, an International MBA (Morocco) several programmes in Asia, and growing internationalization of its programmes and faculty. In addition to this, its Executive School's offer of international and multilingual training programmes for companies and managers, makes HEC Liège an important player on the Belgian Executive Education market.

HEC Liège's commitment to and ongoing investment in quality improvement has been recognized through the international Accreditations AACSB and EQUIS (delivered by EFMD), for the excellence of its programmes, Faculty, student support, research, involvement within its economic context, Alumni network (15,500 worldwide) and overall organization. To date, HEC Liège is the single full management school in Belgium (from Bachelor to PhD) holding this double accreditation. The School, as well, is a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (French).

Working at HEC Liège means being part of a Business School with a truly European identity. Lying at the heart of a metropolis − easily accessible by air and rail, within an hour's drive from Brussels and four from Paris, Frankfurt and London, the School shares in the ardent city's bustling economic and cultural institutions. For being affiliated to several international research and teaching networks connecting with more than 150 partner universities, it naturally encourages its lecturers and researchers to continually develop their expertise internationally.

HEC Liège offers a dynamic and entrepreneurial research and teaching environment. Each professor conducts his or her research program independently. Numerous sources of funding (internal and external) exist and give (assistant) professors the opportunity to create their own research team and to supervise doctoral students as soon as they join HEC Liège. Each professor is also responsible for the content and methodology of his or her teaching. The time allocation between the various activities is 40% for research, 40% for teaching and 20% for community service. In the early years of the appointment, the 20% of service is limited, which gives the professor the opportunity to further develop his or her research and teaching program.

HEC Liège emphasizes the human dimension of its work environment, the regional anchoring of its community service missions, the managerial relevance of its teaching and its applied research projects, let alone its fruitful inter-faculty partnerships.

HEC Liège upholds respect, tolerance, congeniality, diversity and social responsibility. It is committed to the well-being of its members and to environmental protection.

Last but not least, HEC Liège's modern and expanding campus within a city renowned for its friendliness and hospitality makes it a great place to live and work. Here are some of its assets: an excellent and cost-friendly real estate market, high quality schools offering almost free education in the School's immediate vicinity, well-developed public transport, abundant sports and leisure facilities. Not to forget Liège's excellent cultural life for being home to the Royal Opera of Wallonia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a variety of renowned museums, theatres etc., or its country's enviable standard of living and development.

Postdoctoral Scholar Employee Positions, The Center for Commerce and Diplomacy (CCD)

Department: School of Global Policy and Strategy

Salary: Commensurate with experience

Appointment: 12 months (extendable based on mutual agreement and available funding)

Start Date: September 2021

The Center for Commercial Diplomacy (CCD) at UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy (GPS) invites applications for two postdoctoral scholar employee positions from individuals with a Ph.D. degree or who expect to receive a Ph.D. degree by September 1, 2021, for the 2021-2022 academic year.

These awards are designed to promote high-quality research on the challenges and institutions of international economic diplomacy in a changing world. Research projects that seek to understand the causes and consequences of the institutions of economic globalization (e.g. GATT/WTO, FTAs, BITs, IMF, World Bank, Fast-Track, TPA, RTAA, etc) are particularly welcome. Commercial diplomats operate within a set of domestic and international institutions that governs their behavior in international negotiations. But we know little about the specifics of these rules and procedures, how they came into being, how they vary over time and across countries, and how they affect economic outcomes. Postdoctoral research on the institutions of economic globalization can help answer questions about the welfare and distributional consequences of these institutions and, ultimately, result in the better design of these institutions.

Outstanding scholars anywhere in the world are eligible to apply. The Center invites applications from candidates with a background in economics, political science, economic history, legal history, and other disciplines bearing on the study of economic diplomacy. Selected candidates will be required to be in residence for the duration of the appointment, health conditions permitting, and to interact with faculty and Ph.D students, giving at least one research talk. Selected postdoctoral scholars are also expected to attend CCD events and related seminars, and to post their research on the CCD website.

Applicants are required to hold a Ph.D. by September 1, 2021 in one of the above mentioned disciplines.

To apply, please provide the below by email to Lisa Lee at lisalee@ucsd.edu

1. Cover letter explaining the candidate's scholarly career, prospective or actual doctoral defense date, and academic interests.

2. Current curriculum vitae including publications.

3. One writing sample (limit of 100 pages).

4. Three letters of recommendation sent directly to Lisa Lee at lisalee@ucsd.edu

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but it is highly recommended that you apply before May 15, 2021 for full consideration.

About Positive Money:

Positive Money is the leading civil society organisation re-imagining our money and banking system for the wellbeing of people, communities and the planet. We are part of a growing and collective force for economic systems change. Our mission is to reform money and banking to build a fair, democratic and sustainable economy.

To achieve this we produce groundbreaking research and policy, educate the public and politicians, penetrate the media, and mobilise the public behind people-powered campaigns. We work across four key areas: democratising money and banking, a green and fair Bank of England, a wellbeing economy, and new economy thinking. In 2021 our priority campaigns are greening the financial system (in the run up to the UK’s hosting of COP26), calling for a wellbeing economy, and demanding a fair and green economic recovery.

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Monitor green finance policy and research developments, in both the UK and abroad
  • Manage and update the database for our Green Central Banking Scorecard
  • Support the preparation of the next edition of the Green Central Banking Scorecard

  • Contribute to and co-ordinate capacity-building efforts in developing countries, including teaching, and advising.
  • Carry out more general teaching, training, and supervision tasks within the capacity-building programme of UNU-WIDER, including guidance of junior researchers and PhD students.
  • Contribute to communications and dissemination activities for UNU-WIDER’s target audiences.
  • Perform any other tasks as assigned by the Director.
Required qualifications and experience
  • PhD degree in economics, development economics, or a related discipline and extensive knowledge of tax and development issues are required; candidates close to completion of their PhD degree will also be considered.
  • Progressively responsible relevant postgraduate work experience. Proven track record in econometric analysis is required.
  • Experience in project management as well as in leading large dataset preparation and curation work is required. Prior experience in building and running a data lab is desirable.
  • Experience in capacity building with developing countries partners is required.
  • Excellent drafting skills and fluency in both oral and written English; knowledge of French, Portuguese, Spanish, or Arabic would be an asset.
  • Excellent team player with strong interpersonal skills and ability to work independently in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic environment with sensitivity and respect for diversity.
  • Readiness to travel internationally, including extended stays in developing countries when collaborating with local partners.
Remuneration

UNU offers an attractive, tax exempt compensation package including an annual net salary at P-2 level and post adjustment, which reflects the cost of living in a particular duty station and exchange rates (subject to mandatory deductions for pension contributions and health insurance). Other benefits include: 30 days annual leave, dependency benefits, pension plan and health insurance scheme. Benefits for internationally recruited staff may include home leave, travel and removal expenses on appointment and separation, education grant for dependent children, assignment grant and rental subsidy.

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION/0059/2021

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE OPENING OF AN INTERNATIONAL SELECTION TENDER PROCEDURE FOR DOCTORATE HIRING

PURSUANT TO DECREE-LAW NO. 57/ 2016 OF 29 AUGUST

Internal Reference: CUBE-PhD-28596-2

1. Framework

The Rector of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Prof. Dr. Isabel Capeloa Gil, hereby announces an international selection tender for one vacancy of doctorate junior researcher to perform duties of scientific research, on an exclusivity basis, in the scientific field of Economics, to be carried out at CUBE - Católica Lisbon Research Unit in Business and Economics - GES/00407, integrated at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in Lisbon, for the development of research in the project “PTDC/EGE-ECO/28596/2017” entitled “Rethinking Fiscal Policy in the Global Economy”, a project financed by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, I.P. (FCT,IP) through national funds.

This project started on August 26th 2018 and it was predicted to last 36 months until August 25th 2021, but it is expected to be extended for a minimum period of 12 months. The contract resulting from this selection tender should start in August or September, with an expected duration of 10 months (duration of the activities) which will never, under any circumstances, exceed the duration of the project.

This project aims at addressing the following five related policy questions: In a world with increasing inequality, should capital income be taxed in order to distribute to labor? In a world where labor is threatened by automation, how should machines be treated in fiscal terms? In a world in which globalization also appears to be a threat to labor, should trade be taxed away? In a world with increasing uncertainty, how does uncertainty affect the optimal taxation of capital and labor? A good part of the wealth of households is in residential property. Should housing be treated for fiscal purposes just like capital or should housing services be taxed, just like any other consumption good?

We seek a junior doctoral researcher, i.e. a Ph.D. holder with limited post-doctoral experience, to work at Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics. The researcher will work in collaboration with faculty developing research projects in the context of the PTDC/EGE-ECO/28596/2017 project. The researcher will contribute with research work, with a focus on rigorous quantitative analysis of modern macroeconomic models with heterogeneity and will work under the coordination of Professor Pedro Miguel Pinho de Teles, Full Professor at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics. The position is ideal for an individual pursuing an academic career and wishing to gain further research experience and develop the academic publication record. Successful candidates should have strong quantitative and programming skills, with previous experience in advanced solution methods of complex macroeconomic models.

2. Applicable Legislation

Decree-Law no. 57/2016 of 29 August, amended by Law no. 57/2017 of 19 July, which approved the doctorate hiring regime destined to stimulate scientific and technological employment for all knowledge areas (RJEC), without prejudice to the specific regulations applicable to the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

3. Workplace

The workplace is located at the Lisbon facilities of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa.

4. Remuneration

Gross monthly remuneration to be paid is 2,134.73 euros, plus meal, vacation, and Christmas allowances.

No exceptions.

Additional Qualifications:

  • Experience writing, designing, executing, and analyzing surveys using an online survey platform (e.g., Qualtrics).
  • Experience with statistical analysis, particularly working with 'messy' data -- identifying missing data, matching heterogeneous data sources using fuzzy matching techniques, etc.
  • Experience querying databases/web APIs and using statistical computer languages: R, Python, etc.
  • Practical knowledge of analytics, computation, data analysis software (e.g., R, STATA, SPSS, SAS, etc.)
  • Ability to handle multiple projects, stakeholders, and demands
  • Strong team player with excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Interest in learning about the open source ecosystem, including the economic impact and security of open source projects

Responsibilities:

  • Collect, aggregate, and prepare the data on the usage, sustainability and criticality of open source projects;

We’re looking for the next leader for a renowned economics department

The Economics Department has been a premier department in the University of Iowa since Frank Knight was a faculty member in the 1920’s. In 2017, US News ranked the Economics Department 42nd overall and 21st among public institutions. We are looking for a Departmental Executive Officer (DEO) to build on the department’s tradition of excellence.

This position offers an exciting opportunity to make major contributions to the study of economics and to provide strategic leadership aimed at growing and repositioning the department. The college envisions a small, but world-class business economics department.

What we’re about

The Department of Economics at the University of Iowa is administratively housed in the vibrant Tippie College of Business and offers degrees in both the College of Business and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. The department plays a leading role in the robust teaching and research environment. For example, the Iowa Electronic Market (IEM), a real-money futures market pioneered by three economics faculty members, spawned modern prediction markets research.

The permanent faculty of the Economics Department includes 8 tenured/tenure track faculty and 6 instructional track faculty. There are approximately 230 undergraduate economics majors (~50 BBA majors in the Tippie College of Business and ~180 BA and BS majors in the College of Liberal Arts). The department is restarting its nationally ranked PhD program. The department also teaches critical classes in MBA, specialty masters and PhD programs across the college.

The University of Iowa’s status as a premier research university depends on the robust exchange of ideas. We achieve excellence through diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our ability to foster an equitable and inclusive environment for all who join the UI family will determine our collective success. To learn more, visit https://diversity.uiowa.edu/.

The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, a Midwestern college town with modest housing costs, an excellent public school system, excellent healthcare with a world-class teaching hospital, and superior venues for the performing arts. The Iowa City-Cedar Rapids corridor has a combined population of 450,000 residents and an airport with direct major airline flights to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Phoenix.

How you’ll make a difference

Tippie is a collaborative, innovative and nimble college with infinite potential; a place where you can have an immediate impact. The college and department are poised to embrace the future of higher education and research. Bring your ideas to build and integrate the department’s role in the college and university.

The Department Executive Officer (DEO) reports directly to the Senior Associate Dean of the College. The DEO is a tenured full professor charged with providing strategic and operational leadership that promotes excellence in the faculty missions of research, education and service. This charge includes working with faculty to develop the department’s vision and execute the department’s strategic plan. The DEO also provides leadership in the areas of faculty recruitment, development and retention, mentoring of junior faculty, overall quality improvement and budget management.

The DEO works collaboratively with the Dean, Senior Associate Dean, other DEOs, faculty, program directors, and staff to advance education, scholarship, and service in a culture that promotes participation, collegiality, professionalism, and excellence. The DEO assures delivery of effective curriculum, promotes research, and oversees service in a manner that meets program goals and supports the vision, mission and strategic plan of the department, college and university. The DEO also serves as an important communication link between the department and other units of the college and university.

Our next Economics DEO will build a small but high-achieving business economics department that serves students in two colleges and address the need for economic education and research in the state. Candidates should have the ability to engage the current faculty in a vision for the department’s future while attracting a small number of new faculty to enable the department to achieve that vision. We believe the right size for the department is about a dozen tenured/tenure track faculty and 4-6 instructional track faculty.

Requirements

A Ph.D. in Economics or a related field is required. We are looking for a leader that understands the mission of the Economics Department and works with faculty and staff to promote that mission. The successful candidate will:

· - Possess a productive scholarly record that merits an appointment to Full Professor at the University of Iowa;

· - Possess an outstanding record and demonstrate leadership in the three areas - research, education and service - that are cornerstones of the university and college missions;

· - Possess the ability to communicate effectively with all constituents, including students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and the State;

· - Be committed to supporting and enhancing diversity among students, faculty and staff;

A successful candidate must be able to:

· - Recruit, develop, and retain outstanding faculty; support and promote excellence in faculty research and educational endeavors, encourage and guide mentorship of junior faculty;

· - Work collaboratively and effectively with multiple stakeholders to develop the department’s vision, execute the department’s strategic plan and integrate the department’s vision, plan and goals with those of the college and the university.

· - Promote the department by engaging alumni and donors to enhance departmental resources.

· - Maintain an active research agenda and successfully teach classes in accordance with their contracted research and teaching loads

Qualified candidates may be considered for professorship or research chair.

The Research Cluster “ConTrust: Trust in Conflict – Political Life under Conditions of Uncertainty” based at Goethe University Frankfurt is offering 8 positions as

post-doctoral researcher (m/f/d)

(E 13 TV-G-U)

with a duration of three years starting as soon as possible. The salary grade is based on the job characteristics of the collective agreement applicable to Goethe University (TV-G-U).

ConTrust is dedicated to the study of the political and social dynamics of trust and conflict in times of uncertainty. It is an interdisciplinary research initiative, funded by the Hessian Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and the Arts, connecting empirical and normative research. Our approach is based on the idea that trust is not opposed to conflict but rather is formed and sustained within and through conflict – under certain conditions to be researched.

The research initiative consists of five interdisciplinary working groups - 1. Democracy, 2. Coercion and Sanctions, 3. Markets, 4. Knowledge, 5. Media - each of which analyzes a politically and socially relevant context of trust and conflict in times of uncertainty and develops its own work program. The directors of the program, located at the Normative Orders Research Centre of Goethe University Frankfurt, are Prof. Nicole Deitelhoff and Prof. Rainer Forst. For more information about the initiative and the working groups as well as participating principal investigators, see https://contrust.uni-frankfurt.de/

We are seeking outstanding and highly qualified international postdoctoral researchers to strengthen the interdisciplinary research initiative. Five positions are located within the research groups, three positions are intended to link and deepen the research context across the groups. All postdocs are expected to contribute to the success and organization of the overall programme. All applicants should have a strong interest in interdisciplinary work.

We offer positions with the following research and disciplinary focus:

1) Working Group 1: Dynamics of trust and mistrust in conflicts within democratic contexts, including institutional settings and social processes (focus on social sciences, law and humanities)

2) Working Group 2: Coercion and trust in the algorithmic surveillance society, with a possible emphasis on its global or transnational aspects (focus on social sciences, law and humanities)

3) Working Group 3: Relationship of conflict and trust in different areas related to the economy (focus on empirical social sciences / quantitative methods; experience with the analysis of large data sets required); PIs: Guido Friebel (contact: gfriebel@wiwi.uni-frankfurt.de), Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln, Daniela Grunow, Thomas Biebricher

4) Working Group 4: Epistemic trust, trust and knowledge (focus on epistemology, sociology of knowledge, history of science esp.)

5) Working Group 5: Mediated Trust and Formats of Conflict (with a focus on media studies and cultural studies combined with legal perspectives).

General positions:

6) political trust (focus on political theory with reference to empirical research)

7) trust in transnational conflicts (focus in peace and conflict studies with reference to social movements and protest)

8) trust and uncertainty (interdisciplinary focus)

Prerequisites for a successful application for one of the postdoc positions are an outstanding dissertation, proven potential to produce outstanding research and the outline of a relevant research project on the stated topic areas and issues. In your application, please indicate the position (number) to which your application relates.

The following documents are required for an application (in one PDF document):

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • relevant certificates
  • list of publications
  • two letters of recommendation
  • a three-page outline of the research project to be worked on with an indication how the agenda can be extended after the initial three years, ideally with funding through programs such as ERC or Emmy Noether grants

An exciting funded 4-year doctoral studentship is now available at the University of Edinburgh Business School within the field of Financial Technology. The research project is a collaboration between Tentop.com, EIT Digital and University partners and will focus on developing a two-sided token market in a dynamic scenario.

Full details about the project, award value, eligibility and how to apply can be found at https://www.business-school.ed.ac.uk/scholarships/tentop, and any questions can be directed to phd@business-school.ed.ac.uk.

The deadline to apply is Sunday 6th June 2021 and we’re expecting the successful candidate to start their PhD journey in July 2021. A summary of the project background have been detailed below:

****

In existing digital marketplaces, customers and suppliers are not appropriately rewarded for their participation, with the surplus being captured by the marketplace's shareholders. Therefore, there is an opportunity to use advanced mathematics, economics, and machine learning to engineer network effects in a way that shares the rewards created by digital platforms across all of the participants through 'tokenisation'. This would be fairer and more efficient.

This project aims to develop a two-sided token market in a dynamic scenario, which could internalise the externalities between suppliers and consumers. To achieve this, the student will work closely with our industrial partner Tentop.com to calibrate the parameters and develop appropriate data structures for the dynamic algorithm of the marketplace.

The successful candidate will be expected to undertake the project under the supervision of Dr Tong Wang and Dr Joosung Lee along with industry experts at Tentop.com.
