The Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) has a Tenure track Assistant professorship in Behavioural Economics, especially Neuroeconomics.

The position is within the Microeconomics section of ASE. This section covers three different research programs: Experimental & Political Economics (CREED), Human Capital, and Markets & Organizations. The Microeconomics section is responsible for teaching most microeconomics related courses at the BSc and MSc level.

Job description

Candidates are expected to contribute to both research and teaching. Teaching will be at the undergraduate and the graduate level. Non-Dutch speakers are free to teach in English. Research should be aimed at international top journals, in line with the research fellow criteria of the Tinbergen Institute (meeting these criteria is a condition for tenure).

A large part of the teaching will be in neuroeconomics related courses that are part of the Neuroeconomics track of the MSc in Business Economics; yet candidates are expected to be able to teach other microeconomics courses as well.


Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics and have strong skills in Neuroeconomic methods. Candidates with a PhD in one of the core disciplines of Neuroeconomics (e.g., Psychology, Neuroscience) and with a demonstrably strong background in Economics are also encouraged to apply. All candidates will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching.


The successful candidate will be offered a six year tenure track position as Assistant professor. Upon meeting the criteria for tenure, a permanent contract as Associate professor will be offered.

The gross monthly salary during the first three years will be, depending on experience, between €4,018 and €4,978 (salary scale 11) based on 38 hours per week (+ 16.3 % holiday and end-year payments). After a positive evaluation the maximum becomes €5,656 (salary scale 12). This is based on 38 hours per week and in accordance with the salary scales and the Collective Labour 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 intended start date is 1 September 2020.
