Two-year post-doc in economics at the University of Padova (Italy)

The Department of Economics and Management (DSEA) of the University of Padova invites applications from outstanding early-career researchers for a two-year postdoctoral position in the fields of international trade/spatial economics/economic history.

The successful candidate will contribute to two ongoing projects on the impact of pro-empire preferential trade policies in Britain on the British economy in the 1930s, and on the determinants of pro-empire preferential trade policies across colonial empires in the 19th and 20th century. These projects are joint work between Dr. Roberto Bonfatti at DSEA and Prof. Facundo Albornoz and Prof. Giovanni Facchini and Dr. Valeria Rueda at the University of Nottingham's School of Economics.

Co-authorship may be offered on both projects, conditional on good performance.

The successful candidate will be expected to be an independent researcher, and will be given plenty of time to conduct their own research. There are no teaching obligations associated with the position, and knowledge of Italian is not required.

The ideal candidate will:

- Have obtained, or be close to obtain, a PhD in economics from an excellent university;

- Be an independent researcher with a promising research agenda;

- Have advanced knowledge in quantitative modelling and computational methods;

- Ideally, have some expertise working with historical data.

Conditional on approval by the University of Padua, two paid research visits to the University of Nottingham (by up to 2 months per year) may be possible.

Start date is by April 1st 2021 at the latest.

DSEA is consistently ranked as one of the top-5 economics department in Italy.

The Department of Sociology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen invites applications for a three-year fixed-term postdoc position starting on 1 February 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new research team that will conduct a large-scale study of the social class mobility of siblings born over most over the 20th century in more than 10 countries. The research project "Social Class Mobility in Comparative Perspective: Bringing Siblings In" (SIBMOB) is hiring a postdoc who will play a crucial role in developing the project’s methodological innovations. These innovations revolve around developing statistical models for examining the class mobility experiences of siblings from different families. The team is located in a family-friendly work environment at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen.

Qualifications
Applicants should hold a PhD degree within the social sciences (e.g., sociology or economics), applied statistics, bio-statistics, epidemiology, or related fields. Applicants should have obtained their PhD degree in 2014 or later. Applicants must possess advanced skills within quantitative methods, applied statistics, or econometrics. Expertise in mixed generalized linear models, latent class regression models, random effects models, and/or finite mixture modeling is an advantage but not a requirement.

Job Description
SIBMOB, which is funded by the European Research Council, has two objectives: (a) to develop a new methodological approach to characterize the social class mobility of siblings, and (b) to apply this approach in an empirical study of more than 10 countries. The main role of the postdoc is to contribute to the development of the new methodological approach. This part of the project extends the highly influential approach to intergenerational class mobility in sociology by developing new statistical models that rely on the mobility experiences of siblings rather than individuals. Along with the PI, the postdoc will work on extending the mainstream approach based on loglinear models for contingency tables to accommodate unmeasured family heterogeneity. Developing models for single countries and for cross-country comparisons is a major aim of the methodological work package, and the postdoc will play a crucial role in meeting this aim.

SIBMOB is a collaborative project, and the postdoc will be part of a research team which, in addition to the PI in charge of the SIBMOB project (Associate Professor Kristian Bernt Karlson), includes two other postdocs (to be hired in 2022 and 2023) and a research assistant. The candidate is expected to work both independently and in collaboration with the research team to break new ground in the study of social class mobility, with the overall ambition of advancing our understanding of why some countries are more socially mobile than other countries. The project runs from 2021 through 2025 and is located at the Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen. The candidate is also expected take part in the academic life of the department and will be part of the research group Welfare, Inequality, and Mobility.

The postdoc position is a full-time research position and does not involve any teaching obligations.

For further information, including more details on the SIBMOB project, please contact project PI Associate Professor Kristian Bernt Karlson (kbk@soc.ku.dk).

Salary and Terms of Employment
Salary and conditions of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The annual salary for postdoctoral researchers is within the range DKK 405.203,16 – 426.625,2 (EUR 54,000 – 57,000 app.).

In assessing applications, UBC recognizes the legitimate impact that leaves (e.g., maternity leave, leave due to illness) can have on a candidate’s record of research achievement. These leaves will be taken into careful consideration during the assessment process.

UBC welcomes and encourages applications from persons with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for all candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process. To make a confidential request for accommodations, please contact Ciara English, Faculty Relations Support, at cengli01@mail.ubc.ca.

The University is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive and equitable work environment for all members of its workforce, and in particular, for its employees with disabilities. An inclusive work environment for employees with disabilities presumes an environment where differences are accepted, recognized, and integrated into current structures, planning and decision-making modes. For additional information regarding UBC’s accommodation and access policies and resources (for faculty and staff as well as students), please visit the Centre for Accessibility: https://facultystaff.students.ubc.ca/student-development-services/centre-accessibility/faculty-and-staff-disabilities. For support and assistance with accommodation questions, contact accessibility@ubc.ca.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. In accordance with UBC’s CRC Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Action Plan, and pursuant to Section 42 of the BC Human Rights code, the selection will be restricted to members in one or more of the following designated groups: women, visible minorities (members of groups that are racially categorized), persons with disabilities, and Indigenous Peoples. Applicants to Canada Research Chair positions are asked to complete this equity survey (https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6WJHol7SfPxRMu9) as part of the application process, and applicants must self-identify as belonging to one or more of the designated equity groups to be considered for the position. Because the search is limited to those self-identifying as members of designated equity groups, candidates must also provide their name when completing the equity survey in order to be considered.

Personal information is collected under the authority of sections 26(a) and 26(c) of the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The information you provide will only be used to determine whether you qualify for participation in this hiring process. Equity Survey Data will be collected by the UBC Equity & Inclusion Office and only the names of those who identify as women, visible minorities (member of groups that are racially categorized) and/or Indigenous Peoples will be shared with the search committee. Currently, UBC’s CRC complement has a gap in representation of persons with disabilities. Until such time as this is remedied, the names of those self-identifying as having a disability will be provided separately to the search committee. Responses will be stored in a secure database.

JOB DESCRIPTION

The postdoc researcher will be part of the European Research Council (ERC) project “Righting the Wrongs, A Life Course Dynamics Approach for Non-Standard Employment (DYNANSE)”, which studies how non-standard employment shapes labour market inequalities. The project develops a method to produce error-corrected employment trajectories and applies it in the study of the careers of workers with non-standard employment contracts. For this purpose, it uses register and survey data from the Netherlands, Italy and Norway. The successful candidate will work on the substantial part of the project and bridge labour market theories with the empirical analysis of large datasets. (S)he will work in a group of PhD candidates and faculty members with diverse backgrounds including sociology, economics and survey methodology. The research will be conducted in close collaboration with the National Statistical Institutes of the Netherlands (CBS), Italy (Istat) and Norway (SSB).

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented researcher. The successful candidate needs to be an expert in labour market theories as well as proficient in longitudinal data analysis, and preferably has also experience in the analysis of sequence data or Latent Variable Modelling.

Your duties

  • Carry out research on the role of non-standard employment for the ERC project “Righting the Wrongs. A Life Course Dynamics Approach for Non-Standard Employment”
  • Conduct high-quality research in the field of labour sociology, illustrated by international publications, presentations in conferences and communication of research results to the wider public.
  • Support ‘open science’ and work in a reproducible way and share tools and data with the wider scientific community
  • Be an active member of the ERC project team and co-supervise the PhD candidates of the project
  • Take an active role in the collaboration with the National Statistical Institutes that are part of the ERC project. The successful candidate should be willing to spend a small number of months of her/his appointment abroad
  • (optional) Teach courses in Sociology or Statistics and Methodology in courses of the curricula of the Faculty of Social Sciences

REQUIREMENTS

  • Excellent training (PhD) in social sciences, economics, or a related quantitative/computational field
  • Good knowledge of quantitative research methods, preferably sequence analysis or Latent Variable Modelling
  • Examples of academic service in (inter)national contexts. Familiarity with register data and experience in collaboration with National Statistical Institutes will be considered an asset
  • Excellent oral and written command of English. In case of taking the teaching option, non-Dutch speakers should be also willing to learn Dutch within 2 years
  • Team spirit and good communication skills

WHAT ARE WE OFFERING?

A challenging position in a socially engaged organization. On full-time basis the remuneration amounts to a minimum gross monthly salary of €2,709 (scale 10) and a maximum of €4274 (scale 10), depending on your educational level and experience. The job profile is based on the university job ranking system and is vacant for at least 0.8 FTE.

The appointment will initially be for 1 year, with a possibility to extend for another 3 years. The successful candidate has the option of taking also some light teaching tasks (80% research, 20% teaching). In this case, the appointment will extend to 5 years.

Additionally, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam offers excellent fringe benefits and various schemes and regulations to promote a good work/life balance, such as:
• a maximum of 41 days of annual leave based on full-time employment

We are always looking for people who can enrich our world with their own unique perspectives and experiences.

Faculty of Social Sciences
The Faculty of Social Sciences examines the major social problems of our time from multiple perspectives. From bullying at school to dealing with transnational immigration, from the rise of populist politicians to creating a self-reliant society. Only at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you will find all the academic disciplines needed to understand these 'wicked problems': alongside the traditional disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and politics, we also research and teach the new social sciences such as communication science and management & organization science. We do not settle for easy answers in our teaching and research.

About the department, institute, project
The department of Sociology hosts over 50 fte of academic staff and organizes the bachelor and master education in sociology, as well as courses in methodology in the Faculty of Social Sciences (https://fsw.vu.nl/nl/index.aspx). The research of the department is organized in the research program Participation in Society (PARIS), that includes five theme groups: ‘Social Context of Aging’, ‘Social Inequality in the Life-course’, ‘Identity, Diversity and Inclusion’, ‘Social Conflict and Change’ and ‘Philanthropic Studies’.

About the project
Righting the Wrongs, A Life Course Dynamics Approach for Non-Standard Employment (DYNANSE)
This project studies how non-standard employment (NSE) shapes labour market inequalities by trying to resolve the question of whether NSE leads to prosperous or precarious careers. To achieve this aim, it brings three important innovations: 1) it follows a processual approach by studying how NSE affects whole employment trajectories instead of looking at point-in-time events, 2) it develops an integrative framework on the role of NSE by assessing how dynamic micro (individual career-choices), meso (organisational dynamics) and macro (institutional change) factors determine why NSE leads to prosperous or precarious careers, 3) to assess properly the role of NSE it corrects for measurement error. The postdoc project focusses on institutional change and studies how labour market reforms within the recent Great Recession in the three countries of interest (the Netherlands, Italy and Norway) determine employment careers and moderate the role of individual career-choices and organisational dynamics.

This project is embedded in the ‘Social Inequality and the Life Course (SILC)’ research group of the department of Sociology. The SILC group (led by dr. Pavlopoulos) studies inclusion and exclusion in socio-economic distribution processes (education, labour) from a life course perspective. The group’s approach is strongly quantitative, and its members are experts in statistical modelling. It consists of several researchers from the VU, the CBS and
the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI), such as Harry Ganzeboom and Aat Liefbroer.

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities seeks a Policy Analyst or Senior Policy Analyst to conduct analyses and design policy proposals across a wide range of federal budget and economic issues.

The Center is a non-profit research organization with a mission to improve the well-being of low- and moderate-income people and has a national reputation for rigorous analysis of fiscal policies and an ability to influence policy debates. The Center is highly collaborative and collegial, working in and across teams to conduct research, co-author reports, and advance policy recommendations.

The Policy Analyst/Senior Policy Analyst will be part of the Center’s Federal Fiscal Policy team and will work with senior team members who have deep experience in economic policy and federal budget and tax issues. A substantial part of the Analyst’s role will be to help interpret, critique, explain, and apply academic and other original research to the Center’s policy work. Research relevant to the team’s work in issues including taxation, economic security programs, and the macroeconomy (such as the fiscal response to the recession and recovery) often spans a variety of disciplines, but especially applied micro- and macroeconomics. The analyst does not have to bring deep research experience across such a wide variety of issue areas to the role, but must be curious to apply their analytical skills to a broad range of fiscal policy issues.

Most of the work of the Policy Analyst/Senior Policy Analyst will be highly relevant to current legislative developments so the role offers a unique insight into federal policymaking processes and an opportunity to help influence major policy decisions. Center analyses and experts are quoted frequently in the press and relied upon heavily by policymakers.

Responsibilities

  • Conduct and write policy analyses, including on fiscal and economic policy issues, especially as they relate to low- and moderate-income people.
  • Interpret, critique, and explain academic and other original research and apply it to the Center’s policy work.
  • Keep up to speed with relevant new research in applied microeconomics, applied macroeconomics, and other relevant disciplines.
  • Organize and lead collaborative research processes with the Federal Fiscal Policy team and other teams across the Center.
  • Respond to information requests from policymakers, the media, and other national organizations, often on tight deadlines.
  • Help to train and supervise the Federal Fiscal Policy team’s budget and tax research assistants/associates and interns.
  • Keep up to speed with congressional and media developments to help identify opportunities for the Center to influence policy or public opinion.

Requirements

  • A commitment to the Center’s mission to improve the well-being of low- and moderate-income people.
  • A commitment to advancing racial equity and inclusion across multiple dimensions, in policy analysis and advocacy as well as the Center’s internal and external relationships.
  • An exemplary commitment to accuracy, and a high degree of organization.
  • Strong quantitative skills, including proficiency with Excel and with statistical packages.
  • Strong writing skills, including the ability to explain highly technical concepts to a variety of audiences, including policymakers, advocates, and the media, and to synthesize data and research into clear, effective arguments.
  • Strong research skills, including the ability to use and interpret a wide range of sources, such as legislation, regulations, and academic work in fiscal policy and economics.
  • Ability to manage processes and to prioritize and handle multiple responsibilities under time pressure.
  • An ability both to show initiative and develop analyses independently, and to work as part of a highly collaborative team.
  • A bachelor’s degree in a relevant field.
  • Policy Analyst: At least four years of experience working in fiscal, economic, or tax policy. A master’s degree in a relevant field (including economics, policy, or applied statistics) may be substituted for two years’ work experience.
  • Senior Policy Analyst: At least seven years of experience working in fiscal, economic, or tax policy. Years of graduate study in a relevant field (including economics, policy, or applied statistics) beyond master’s level may substitute for work experience.

Preferred or desired

  • Experience working on and knowledge of fiscal policy issues is a strong plus but not required.
  • Relevant work experience, or a PhD or other equivalent degree beyond the master’s level is a plus but not required.
  • Experience training, supervising, and developing entry-level staff is a plus but not required.

This position reports to the Senior Director of Economic Policy.

Terms of Employment: Full-time, exempt.
Bargaining Unit Status: This is a bargaining unit position.

Compensation: Salary and title commensurate with experience; excellent benefits, including three health insurance options, dental and vision care, life and long-term disability insurance, retirement, flexible spending and dependent childcare accounts, and generous vacation leave, sick leave, and holiday schedules.

Please upload a cover letter, resume, and a writing sample with your application. In your cover letter, please include a discussion of what draws you to the mission of the Center.

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is an Equal Opportunity Employer that values and welcomes diversity in the workplace and strongly encourages all qualified persons to apply regardless of race, color, age, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, credit information, pregnancy or parental status, family responsibilities, personal appearance, creed, military or veteran status, religion, ancestry or national origin, union activities, disability, or other status protected by applicable law.

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, 2020.

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/16258 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.)

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they arrive until the position is filled. We will begin interviewing immediately.

We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
