Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen (UCPH) and EKF, the Danish Export Credit Agency together invites candidates for a two-year postdoctoral position in Trade Finance Economics starting in the Spring or early Summer of 2021.

The position is jointly funded by EKF and the Innovation Fund of Denmark through the project “The connection between developments in global financial markets, export credits and Danish companies' exports”.

The Research Project

“The connection between developments in global financial markets, export credits and Danish companies' exports” is a two-year research project, which will be co-headed by Professor Jakob Roland Munch of UCPH and Department Director Jørn Fredsgaard Sørensen of EKF.

The goal of the project is to determine the factors behind the demand for state-sponsored export credits.
Many governments around the world sponsor export credit agencies (ECAs) in order to mitigate risks and provide finance and thereby promote exports. The states’ involvement in providing finance for export goes back more than 100 years, and EKF and other ECAs play a major role in facilitating private firms’ export activity.
It is all the more remarkable how little is known, among practitioners and researchers alike,
about the interconnections between, on the one hand, ECAs’ activity level, and, on the other hand, the surrounding economy. It is thus not possible to see whether demand for ECAs’ guarantees and loans goes up or down, whenever there is a downturn in the economy.

As risks rise in a downturn, one could expect an increase in the demand for ECA guarantees. However, a downturn also decreases the volume of desired investments and thus the financing requirements, thereby shrinking the pool of possible transactions on which ECA guarantees can be relevant.

An additional reason for the lack of any observable pattern is probably that most of ECA export credits or guarantees are provided with the commercial banking sector as a middleman. As such, the combination of banks’ willingness to lend and their risk appetite (with or without ECA guarantees) and the number of possible lending transactions (which fluctuates with economic activity in general) has an independent influence on the demand for ECA guarantees and loans.

The project thus aims to answer two fundamental questions to which there are currently no satisfactory answers:

  1. What factors are driving the demand for ECAs’ guarantees and loans?
  2. What are the effects of ECA credit provisions on firm performance?

The project will exploit a unique combination of data sources, including official Danish firm registers, EKF’s database, as well as a data set from the Berne Union on all ECAs’ issuance of loans and guarantees to different countries in the world. This will be coupled with data on international cross-border movements of private bank flows from BIS (Bank of International Settlements) as well as other relevant data.

Duties, Responsibilities and Opportunities

Primary responsibility of the Postdoc candidate is to conduct research in order to answer the two fundamental questions above. The Postdoc will be expected to make contributions to the project’s overall research agenda by processing and analyzing the connection between the issuance of ECA loans and guarantees (the Berne Union data set) and the cross-border movements of private bank flows (and their underlying factors – the BIS data set 1).

The candidate is expected to spend about half of her/his time at EKF, while the other half will be spent at UCHP or from a home office. However, there are ample opportunities to reach out and spend time at universities and other institutions of relevance to the project.

Given that two major data sources are from respectively the Berne Union in London and the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, it is expected that the candidate will spend time at these institutions. There is currently no ongoing research at the Berne Union, but there is a flourishing research environment around BIS. There will be an audience among the ECAs in the Berne Union, which will be interested in pre-publications findings of relevance to their institutions.

It will also be recommended and supported that the candidate reaches out to relevant universities and research institutions in the field.

It is also recommended that the candidate participates in relevant seminars and conferences, which the candidate will have a significant stake in identifying.

There are no teaching obligations related to this position, and the position thus offers a good chance to focus on research within a hitherto academically unexamined, but financially and politically very important subject.

The Candidate’s Competences

The candidate must have obtained a PhD degree in Economics or a highly related field by the time the Postdoc position starts. In addition, the following competences are viewed as a plus (but not a necessity):

  • Previous experience with independent data collection and/or administrative data sources.
  • Familiarity with existing theoretical and/or empirical work on trade finance, credit constraints and bank lending.
  • Familiarity with various approaches to statistical data analysis, as well as some knowledge of qualitative data analysis.

Candidates possessing these competences should make sure to highlight this in their application materials.

The Environment

EKF offers a stimulating working environment, akin to a private financial institution. The candidate will be hosted by the department for Country, Bank & Sector risk, headed by Jørn Fredsgaard Sørensen. This department is the major analytical department in EKF, employing among its seven analysts two PhDs in respectively economy and political science. EKF is located in Nordhavn, 10 minutes from central Copenhagen by Metro and in attractive offices at the waterfront.

EKF helps Danish companies make it attractive for foreigners to buy Danish goods. EKF has financed transactions in over 100 countries, and offers an exciting and international environment, where collaboration with companies, banks and embassies around the world as well as international organizations is the daily norm. EKF employs around 150 persons.

The Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen offers a stimulating research environment. The Department has an established strategy of being an elite economics department in Europe. This is reflected in the rapid growth and track record of top publications of its faculty. See more at https://econ.ku.dk/ or read the department’s strategy here https://www.economics.ku.dk/department/reportsplans/M_l-_og_handleplan_OI_final.pdf

The department is located in central Copenhagen. The international nature of Copenhagen and the high English-language proficiency makes it an easy and attractive city to live in for candidates coming from abroad.

The Department of Economics is part of the Faculty of the Social Sciences. The Faculty is a successful academic community that strives to put knowledge into action by:

  • Engaging partners in the co-creation of knowledge, learning and social change.
  • Empowering our students to become reflective and responsible citizens who have the vision, the knowledge and the competences to change society for the better.
  • Energizing global, European and Danish communities of knowledge by innovating research methodologies and by research findings with impact

Terms of Employment

Terms of appointment, salary and contribution to the pension scheme is in accordance to the agreed for academics in the state field.

The recruitment process

Interviews will be conducted on-line and if possible, also face to face in EKF.

The Faculty of Economics and Management of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg in cooperation with the Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) – Member of the Leibniz Association seeks quali­fied candidates to fill two positions at the rank of

Assistant Professor (W1) in Financial Economics.

JEL Classification: G

We expect the candidate to have a strong interest in teaching and research in Financial Economics. Pre­ferred will be candidates with a focus on

‒ the interaction between the financial system and the real economy

‒ the interaction between finance and labor

A quantitative research approach and experience with the latest empirical methods, as well as a desire to apply economic research to policy questions are desirable.

The Assistant Professorships serve to deepen the collaboration between the University and the Halle Insti­tute for Economic Research (IWH). The IWH is one of the seven economic research institutes of the Leibniz Association in Germany (www.iwh-halle.de). The IWH focuses on research in finance, macroeconomics, and productivity and innovation. The two Assistant Professorships are intended to strengthen the joint research focus in Finance of the IWH and the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. They will join the IWH’s Financial Markets Department or the new department on Laws, Regulations and Factor Markets at the IWH.

The requirements for both positions are: the completion of a PhD in Economics or Finance by summer of 2021 at the latest, the potential for successful publications in international journals, and ideally an existing network of international research collaborations. It is expected that the candidates will teach in the Faculty’s Bachelor and Masters Programs. While knowledge of German is desirable, it is not a require­ment for the position.

The employees are assigned the status of civil servants with limited tenure (Beamtenverhältnis auf Zeit). The contract will initially be limited to three years, and may be extended by a further three years given a positive evaluation.

Applications from disabled persons will be given priority in the case of equal suitability, ability and profes­sional expertise. The Otto von Guericke University and the IWH aim to increase the proportion of women researchers within the university and specifically encourage women to apply.

The hiring committee will be available for information talks at the EEA Job Market Meeting as well as the ASSA Meetings.

Applications including CV, list of publications, references, documentation of previous teaching experience including evaluation reports, list of conference talks and successfully acquired third-party funds shall be submitted preferably electronically to EconJobMarket (EJM: https://econjobmarket.org/), Job Openings for Economists (JOE: https://www.aeaweb.org/joe/candidate) or via e-mail (fww-dekanat@ovgu.de) to the following address until November 30, 2020:

Position Overview:

J-PAL’s King Climate Action Initiative (K-CAI) is looking to hire one or more Post-Doctoral Associates for up to two years to conduct research as part of K-CAI with funding from King Philanthropies.

Climate change disproportionately affects people living in poverty and threatens to reverse decades of progress in global poverty alleviation. Leaders around the world need more evidence on the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of technological and policy innovations in the real world to direct limited resources to solutions that address climate change and poverty.

In 2020, J-PAL launched the King Climate Action Initiative (K-CAI), a major research and policy initiative focused on combating climate change and poverty. K-CAI supports rigorous randomized evaluations and scale-ups of effective programs and policies to tackle the four greatest climate-related challenges facing our world:

  • Climate change mitigation: Reducing carbon and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to slow the pace of climate change and its damaging effects
  • Pollution reduction: Reducing harmful carbon co-pollutants and thereby improving public health, without reducing critical access to energy
  • Climate change adaptation: Building people and communities’ ability to adapt to the economic, social, and environmental impacts of climate change, particularly in low- and middle-income countries
  • Energy access: Increasing access to affordable, reliable energy for people experiencing poverty and encouraging shifts in energy systems towards cleaner sources

K-CAI consists of a research fund to study innovative interventions to combat climate change and poverty, and a scaling fund to provide technical assistance to policy partners to adapt, pilot, and scale the interventions found to be effective.

K-CAI research awards fund full randomized evaluations, pilot research projects, and travel/proposal development projects. K-CAI prioritizes evaluations that use administrative, satellite, and other remote sensing data to generate results more quickly and research with policy partners that can scale effective solutions that have the potential to benefit people in poverty.

The post-doc position(s) will be based at one of the following locations based on team needs, and candidate work authorization and preferences: UC Santa Barbara, University of Chicago, or one of J-PAL's Regional Offices in Africa (University of Cape Town, South Africa), Europe (Paris School of Economics, France), Latin America & the Caribbean (PUC, Santiago, Chile), the Middle East and North Africa (American University of Cairo, Egypt), South Asia (IFMR, Delhi, India), Southeast Asia (University of Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia). Candidates must be legally authorized to work in the country where they would like to be based. This position is not based at MIT. 

Principal Duties and Responsibilities:

The postdoc will work with J-PAL affiliated researchers and stakeholders in a subset of K-CAI priority countries to develop new research projects and design the piloting, monitoring, and research agenda around new projects. The majority of the postdoc’s time will be spent on academic research using randomized controlled trials. Other duties may include supporting efforts to increase collaboration with researchers based in priority countries including mentoring and collaborating with local researchers involved in the Initiative, supervising Initiative staff and PhD students in literature review and/or data analysis, and participating in the organization of events and seminars. The position offers the opportunity to join a research partnership with a strong track record of high-quality publication and policy impact; is likely to lead to several co-authored papers; and is designed to help the selected candidate launch a successful academic career with a strong research pipeline.

Supervision Received: The Post-Doctoral Associate will work with K-CAI co-chairs, Michael Greenstone and Kelsey Jack, as well as principal investigators on specific research projects.

Supervision Exercised: The Post-Doctoral Associate will exercise academic supervision over research staff and PhD students involved in core Initiative activities and specific research projects.

Qualifications & Skills:

  • Education: A doctoral degree in economics, political science, public policy, computer science, or related fields is required.
  • Experience: Candidates should have significant experience and a strong background in either implementing RCTs on their own and/or demonstrated research interest in one or several of the subject areas above.
  • Work style: Attention to detail and ability to work on projects independently.
  • Time Management: Proven ability to handle several different projects/tasks at one time and meet deadlines. A willingness to work hard, be self-motivated, and learn will be essential for doing well in this position.
  • Software proficiency: Stata or R required; Python, C, MATLAB or other programming skills preferred. GIS and/or remote sensing experience is also desirable.

How to Apply

Applicants will be asked to submit the following materials:

  1. Cover letter: Please outline why you are interested in J-PAL and the King Climate Action Initiative and why you are qualified for this role.
  2. Resume/CV: Please also include names of at least three references, with their email address and titles.
  3. Writing Sample: This should be an academic publication or working paper or thesis if PhD. 

Note: Shortlisted candidates will be required to submit at least three reference letters that should address the candidate’s ability to carry out their proposed research.

The Paris School of Economics invites applications for a two-year Post Doc in the framework of a collaboration with the Standing Panel on Impact Assessment (SPIA) of CGIAR. The position is targeted towards candidates with an interest in agricultural innovation, natural resource management, food systems and nutrition, and expertise in causal impact evaluation and measurement

About SPIA

SPIA is an independent panel of academic researchers that oversees a portfolio of studies on the impact of the work of CGIAR, a global research partnership dedicated to reducing poverty, enhancing food and nutrition security, and improving natural resources. SPIA’s membership comprises agricultural, development and environmental economists, collaborating with experts across a wide variety of disciplines, and supported by a small secretariat and full-time research staff.

This position

The postdoc will engage in original, world-class research in an area relevant to SPIA’s work plan, in collaboration with the SPIA chair (Karen Macours, based at PSE), SPIA panel members, CGIAR researchers, SPIA’s research team and partners; and to help develop methods, protocols and guidelines for impact research in CGIAR.

To do so, activities could include: scoping and facilitating research collaborations with national stakeholders and research partners, focused on innovative data collection approaches in one or two strategic countries in Africa or South Asia; scoping opportunities for causal impact studies on CGIAR innovations (including both new experimental and quasi experimental studies, and long-term follow-ups); developing an agenda on improvements and validation of measurement of the adoption, diffusion and impact of agricultural, natural resource management and policy innovations, including the development of accurate and cost-effective measures that can be incorporated in large-scale data collection efforts; conducting literature reviews and writing synthesis papers; development of questionnaires, including field travel; managing and supporting fieldwork firms or fieldworkers; data management, analysis and writing of publications; and promotion of research outputs and relevant findings to key stakeholders, including policy-makers, researchers, and implementers.

Other key responsibilities include: participation and organization of SPIA activities and events; supporting capacity-building activities and interactions with the Impact Assessment Community of Practice in CGIAR; and mentoring of predoctoral fellows.

The postdoc will have time and be encouraged to pursue his or her own research agenda.

The successful candidate will have previous experience in conducting empirical field research, designing casual impact evaluations or measurement experiments/innovations in developing countries, or have an alternative methodological expertise of relevance to SPIA’s work program; have a strong interest in the broad areas covered by CGIAR research; have solid understanding of causal inference and measurement challenges in applied micro-econometrics, research design; and have the ability to work in teams and to carry out independent research. You should be proactive and reliable, with experience coordinating teams and managing a variety of tasks.

The postdoc will participate in academic life at PSE and be encouraged to explore synergies with related research initiatives and teams at PSE, including climate research at JPAL Europe, PSE’s environmental initiative and multidisciplinary collaborative project, and research around structural change, agriculture, environment and food security in PSE’s development economics research group.

We particularly encourage applications from individuals from historically under-represented groups in economics (including, but not limited to, women, individuals from under-represented racial/ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds). A diverse research community produces stronger research. Applicants with a Ph.D. from a relevant field outside of economics are welcome if they have shown their ability to engage in a fruitful dialogue with economists.

PSE offers an exciting research environment. The position comes with no teaching or administrative duties, but the postdoc will have opportunities to work with predoc fellows and students at PSE. Salary is competitive in Europe. The PhD should be completed or duly planned by the date of the appointment. Applicants with a Ph.D. obtained prior to 2017 will not be considered. Knowledge of French is NOT required.

Online applications only should be received by March 31, 2021 (and ideally by February 17, 2021). Any query or further details about applications should be sent to karen.macours@psemail.eu. Candidates may be invited to give a job talk.

Applicants should include a cover letter explaining their interest for the position, and upload a CV, a paper, and have three letters of recommendation uploaded before March 31, 2021.

The successful candidates will work closely with Professors Karthik Muralidharan and Prashant Bharadwaj, Paul Niehaus (UCSD), Aprajit Mahajan (UC Berkeley), Manisha Shah (UCLA), and Sandip Sukhtankar (UVA) to 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 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 policymaking 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. Fellows who joined the program last year are Manaswini Rao, and Naveen Kumar.

The position is open to a candidate who has recently earned a Ph.D. 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 when the travel becomes possible again). 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 2021, with some flexibility on the exact start date. The successful candidate will be a fully integrated member of the UCSD economics community. We expect that successful performance in this role can lead to a variety of longer-term career options including faculty positions, or joining other policy think tanks, non-profits, foundations, or development organizations (especially those focused on India).

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 Jan 04, 2021, for full consideration. We will conduct interviews with the shortlisted candidates in January 2021. 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.

JOB DESCRIPTION

The University of Sussex invites applications for a Senior Research Fellow in International Trade in the Department of Economics.

This is a senior level position, to which we are looking to recruit an experienced post-doctoral researcher with knowledge and expertise in independent research in the field of international trade, a commensurate track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals, and with a demonstrable interest in the policy relevance of their work. This post provides the opportunity to spend the next three years focusing on research with relevance and impact.

The UKTPO is focused on producing high quality academic research as well as engagement with the policy making community and wider stakeholders. The Senior Research Fellow will be expected to undertake the role of Principal Investigator on research projects, demonstrating and providing academic leadership to more junior members of the team. While much of the UKTPO’s work focuses on trade topics for the UK, our work has a broader remit and areas of research and activity are by no means exclusively UK focused.

Our current interests are broad, and we particularly welcome applications from researchers with an interest in the following areas:

  • the effect and impacts of free trade agreements on trade and investment;
  • the relationship between trade and climate policy and more broadly environmental sustainability;
  • the impact on firms, regions and supply chains of changes in trade policy, of ongoing technological change and notably digitization;
  • trade responses to exogeneous shocks such as COVID-19;
  • the role of the UK in the world trading system and in relation to developing countries; and
  • computable modelling of changes in trade policy.

Candidates should demonstrate:

  • The ability to conduct outstanding and impactful academic research in the economics of international trade and integration;
  • the ability to communicate clearly both in writing and verbally;
  • a strong interest in trade policy and
  • willingness to engage with policy makers, stakeholders and the media.

Collaboration and team working are central to the UKTPO, so being able to work closely with colleagues in a fast-moving and exciting area is vital.

Please contact Michael Gasiorek, Director of the UKTPO on m.gasiorek@sussex.ac.uk / uktpo@sussex.ac.uk for informal enquiries.

The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Medicine and Mathematics (STEMM) at Sussex.

The University of Sussex values the diversity of its staff and students and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

  • Develop and maintain effective relationships and networks with key stakeholders involved in research and policy.

Qualifications:

  • At least five years’ experience as a professional in the field, with experience in conducting economic analysis of market structure and performance.
  • Proven track record of research outputs, policy reports, op-eds, or other forms of policy-oriented communication.
  • Advanced degree in economics or political economy, with courses on industrial organization and other related economics areas, or equivalent experience.
  • In-depth knowledge of industrial organization economics, microeconomic analysis, and the history of U.S. antitrust law and policy.
  • Ability to develop research outputs and policy briefs from a dynamic competition policy perspective.
  • Deep understanding and proven ability critique a variety of economic arguments and analyses regarding antitrust issues and claims.
  • Exceptional writing skills, especially an ability to communicate succinctly and persuasively to policy audiences.
  • Exception internal and external communication skills (to engage in policy debates, deliver public speeches, provide and consider feedback from colleagues, and communicate under pressure).
  • Keen interest in technology, innovation, and public policy.
  • Keen interest to be involved in policy debates, to speak at events and to extend the audience of the key research outputs.
  • Econometric modelling skills are a plus.
  • Ability to meet deadlines.

Job Description

The Questrom School of Business at Boston University anticipates an opening for a full-time lecturer to teach quantitative methods for business in the Questrom School of Business’ undergraduate and masters programs. Pending Provost budgetary approval, the anticipated start date for this faculty position is July 1, 2021.

Currently, Questrom requires its undergraduates to take three quantitative methods classes that cover probability, statistics (with a strong emphasis on multiple regression), optimization, and risk management modeling. Any candidate must be able to teach all three of these undergraduate required courses. Other quantitative courses the successful candidate might be asked to teach include undergraduate business analytics electives, MBA courses on quantitative methods, or courses in our master’s program in business analytics.

Full-time lecturers in the Questrom School have a standard teaching load of six sections per academic year, typically fulfilled by teaching three sections each in the fall and spring semester. As Questrom offers many sections of its core quantitative methods classes each semester, most lecturers are able to satisfy their teaching obligation with multiple sections of some or even all the courses they teach. Lecturers are also expected to perform some service through, for example, membership on school committees, participation in school functions (such as recruiting events), and advising student clubs.

The Questrom School of Business believes that the cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that, we are especially eager to have join our ranks a colleague who supports our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive. The Questrom School of Business seeks to continue diversifying our faculty, student and staff ranks, recognizing that diversity of experience and thought deepens the intellectual endeavor.

Required Skills

Candidates must have demonstrated expertise in the application of quantitative methods in business obtained through some combination of academic work and business experience. A Ph.D. in a field related to the use of quantitative methods in business is desirable, but we will consider candidates with at least a bachelors degrees that can demonstrate sufficient expertise learned through experience applying quantitative tools in business. Experience with and mastery of Python or R, preferably both, is a requirement. Because we expect Questrom students to master the use of Excel, strong Excel skills are also essential. Teaching experience is desirable, but we will consider candidates who have not taught previously.

How to Apply

Interested candidates should not apply through the Boston University HR website. Candidates are encouraged to send application details to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/18005 and include the following:

  1. A cover letter stating interest and qualification
  2. A curriculum vitae
  3. Three letters of recommendation
  4. A statement of where you saw this notice (e.g. the conference name, website, colleague, etc.)

The European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) invites applications for a post-doctoral position in the field of fields of international trade and political economy.

 

The recruited candidate will work together with Professor Paola Conconi on her ERC project on “Trade Agreements and Supply Chains (TRASC).” The project will study the impact of trade agreements on firms’ sourcing decisions, productivity, and welfare, breaking from the literature on global sourcing, which neglects the role of trade agreements. It will also examine how large corporations with international supply chains shape the content and political support for trade agreements, breaking from a vast literature in political economy, which studies agreements covering trade provisions only and neglects the role of firms.

ECARES provides researchers with a high-quality research environment in economics, econometrics and statistics. ECARES fellows are leading researchers in various fields, who publish regularly in top and top-field journals, and is home to 6 ERC grant holders and 2 Franqui price winners.

 

ECARES is highly interactive: we have three weekly seminar series and co-organize two more seminar series with CORE (UCLouvain) and the National Bank of Belgium. It is also an antenna for CEPR. ECARES also hosts the doctoral school in Economics and Statistics, which attracts many first-class European and Non-European students.

 

Offer

 

We offer a full-time contract for three years. The contract starts between September 2021 and December 2021. The position involves no or extremely light teaching load. Salaries are competitive at the European level. The recruited person will benefit from the complete Belgian social insurance scheme (health care, etc.) without additional expenses.

Applicants are expected to show outstanding commitment to research and must have obtained a PhD by the start of the position.

- A curriculum vitae

- A cover letter mentioning why the candidate is interested in the position

- A job market paper

- 3 recommendation letters
