The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) is recruiting highly qualified Post-Docs/Research Scientists, at various levels of seniority, to join the Lab of Digital and Computational Demography.

MPIDR is one of the leading demographic centers in the world. It is part of the Max Planck Society, a network of more than 80 institutes that form Germany's premier basic-research organization. Max Planck Institutes have an established record of world-class, foundational research in the sciences, technology, social sciences and the humanities. They offer a unique environment that combines the best aspects of an academic setting and a research laboratory.

The Lab of Digital and Computational Demography, headed by MPIDR Director Emilio Zagheni, is looking for candidates with a background in Demography, Data Science, Computer Science, Statistics, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Social Psychology, Geography, Applied Mathematics, Public Health, Public Policy, or related disciplines.

Examples of areas relevant for the Lab include (but are not limited to):

  1. Combining traditional data sources as well as those that emerge from the digitalization of our lives to study demographic processes, like migration, health and well-being, intergenerational relationships and gender disparities.
  2. Developing innovative forms of data collection for demographic research (e.g., surveys via web and social media advertisement platforms, or data collected via sensors, tracking devices, mobile phone apps, or crowd-sourced approaches).
  3. Developing simulation models of individual choices and population-level processes to produce new insights on demographic dynamics and advance population theory.
  4. Evaluating the impact of the digitalization of our lives on demographic behavior, well-being and population processes.
  5. Modeling, estimating and predicting the relationships between environmental change, demographic processes and disease dynamics.

For more information about the Lab and its current projects, see: demogr.mpg.de/go/lab-dcd

The Lab of Digital and Computational Demography brings together methodologists (from areas like Statistics, Computer Science or Mathematical Demography) with experts in areas of the Social Sciences in order to favor cross-pollination of ideas, to advance methods and theory, and to address pressing societal questions.

The successful candidate must have obtained their PhD (or expect to have obtained their PhD by the time the post commences in early 2021), and their profile should match one of the following three:

  1. A methodologist interested in producing methodological advances in the field of Digital and Computational Demography.
  2. A social and behavioral scientist with strong expertise in at least one of the following substantive areas: migration and mobility; population aging and generational processes; social demography; environmental demography; (digital) health; technological change and well-being.
  3. A computational social scientist interested in working on questions central to demographic research.

Across all profiles, the ability and willingness to work in interdisciplinary teams in order to conduct cutting-edge research that advances population science is key.

Applications have to be submitted online via demogr.mpg.de/go/JobAd369427 and include the following documents:

  1. Curriculum Vitae
  2. Letter of interest (Max 1 page)
    Briefly state why you are interested in joining MPIDR, how MPIDR could foster your professional development and career trajectory, and in which ways your interests fit the research strengths of MPIDR.

  4. Names and contact information for 3 academic references
  5. One or two writing samples or publications

The positions will be open until filled. In order to receive full consideration, applications should be submitted by May 3rd, 2020. The starting date is flexible, but no later than early 2021. Successful applicants will be offered a 3-year contract with remuneration commensurate to experience (starting from approx. 55,000 EUR gross per year for researchers who have just completed their PhD, up to approx. 70,000 EUR gross per year for more senior scientists) based on the salary structure of the German public sector (Öffentlicher Dienst, TVöD Bund).

The Max Planck Society offers a broad range of measures to support the reconciliation of work and family. These are complemented by the MPIDR’s own initiatives. For more information, see: demogr.mpg.de/go/work-family.

In addition, there are a range of central initiatives and measures primarily geared towards helping young female researchers and mothers to advance their career. See the link below for some examples: demogr.mpg.de/go/career-development.

Our Institute values diversity and is committed to employing individuals from minorities. Individuals with severe disability are especially welcome to apply. The Institute and the Max Planck Society also seek to increase the proportion of women in areas where they are underrepresented.

  • Start Date: July 1, 2020
  • Location: UC San Diego, La Jolla, CA

The Department of Economics at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is pleased to announce multiple 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowships (extendable to a third year) with the Program on the Indian Economy starting in July 2020 (or earlier). The successful candidates will work closely with Professors Karthik Muralidharan, Paul Niehaus, and Prashant Bharadwaj (UCSD), Aprajit Mahajan (UC Berkeley), Manisha Shah (UCLA), and Sandip Sukhtankar (UVA) to set up and run economic research and analysis to improve the quality of public expenditure in Indian states. This work will be conducted in close partnership with the newly founded Center for Effective Governance of Indian States (CEGIS), based in India, which aims to work closely with Indian state governments to improve governance and service delivery.

The position offers the opportunity to join a team of leading development economists with a strong track-record of publication and policy impact; and to produce research and analysis that is likely to have a substantial impact on policy in India. CEGIS aims to produce high-quality economic analysis to inform state-level policy making in India, and the position is best described as being equivalent to a policy economist, with an expectation of producing both high-quality analysis for policy, as well as peer-reviewed academic papers as appropriate. The ideal candidate will be someone who values rigor, relevance, and impact in economic analysis. We expect to hire multiple post-doctoral fellows (2-4) and thereby create a world-class intellectual community for policy-relevant research on India.

The position is open to a candidate who has recently earned a PhD in Economics, Public Policy, other quantitative social sciences, applied statistics, or information systems (including GIS), with a focus on development/public/labor economics, applied statistics/econometrics, or applied data sciences with a focus on policy applications. Strong applied econometrics skills are expected, and so are excellent written and verbal communication skills. The ideal candidate will also have a deep interest in India, and Indian economic policy, and be able to travel to India as required (2-3 trips a year of 2-3 weeks or longer). We also highly value the ability to work effectively in teams, and to produce high-quality analytical output in policy-relevant timeframes.

The position will be based at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and will initially be for 2 years (extendable based on mutual agreement). The target start date for the position is summer 2020, with some flexibility on the exact start date. The successful candidate will be based at UCSD and be a fully integrated member of the UCSD economics community, with travel to India as required. We expect that successful performance in this role can lead to a variety of longer-term career options including faculty positions, joining CEGIS full-time in India, or joining other policy think tanks, non-profits, foundations, or development organizations.

Please apply through EJM, and feel free to reach out to Burak Eskici (beskici@ucsd.edu) if you have any questions.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but it is highly recommended that you apply before January 10, 2020, for full consideration. We will conduct an information session at the AEA meetings at 12:30pm on Sunday, 5 January (please e-mail beskici@ucsd.edu for details), and expect to conduct first round interviews in late January 2020. The position is eligible for J-1 visa sponsorship.

The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within faculty, staff, and student body. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.

As part of the project "Origins and Transmission of Financial Market Risks" Bocconi University invites applications for a two-year post-doc position starting in September 2020.

The project seeks to understand the nature of financial decision-making by individuals and institutions and how the latter contributes to market instability. The project consists of two main research strands. The first is more behavioral, and seeks to shed light on financial decisions by: i) measuring belief formation and ii) characterizing its possible departures from rationality. The second strand is institutions and market based: it purports to map individual decisions into distortions in asset prices, the allocation of credit, and the real economy.

The ideal profile for the position is that of an empirical researcher capable of dealing with both field and experimental data. An empirical financial economist with knowledge of behavioral finance, or a versatile empirical economist with knowledge of finance would constitute a good fit. More specifically, the required skillset comprises:

· Data collection and organization (which includes field, experimental, and survey data).

· Knowledge of standard econometric techniques (cross sectional and time series) and of the statistical software needed to implement them.

Applications must be received before 12 noon (CET) on April 1st, 2020 at

The selected candidate will be an experienced business scholar with research focus on accounting, ideally at the intersection of non-financial disclosure/ESG. The selected candidate will have the ability to perform and administer high quality scientific research leading to publications in the premier journals of the discipline. The selected candidate will create increased research expertise, international visibility and joint publication opportunities for the department.
