The Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) currently has a position for a Postdoctoral researcher.
All candidates with a strong background in Experimental Microeconomics or/and Economic Psychology are encouraged to apply. The post-doctoral fellow will be part of a research group studying the impact of communication on economic applications. The position is funded by two grants: one on the behavioural roots of corruption and the other on how empathy can boost honesty. The post-doc is expected to contribute to these lines of work, but is further encouraged to develop additional lines of research. Research is expected to be aimed at international top journals.
Teaching tasks range from first-year tutorials to supervising MSc theses. A substantial part of the school’s teaching is conducted in English, also at the undergraduate level; non-Dutch speakers are free to teach in English.
Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics or related discipline.
The successful candidate will be offered a 2-year appointment.
The gross monthly salary will be, depending on experience, between €2,984, and €4,757 (salary scale 10/11) (+ 16.3% holiday and end-year payments) based on 38 hours per week and in accordance with the salary scales and the collective labor agreement regulating employment conditions at Dutch universities. A substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 30% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme. The Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities is applicable.
