- Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
- Uren per week:
- 38 - 38 uur
- € 4018 - € 4978 per maand
The position is in Macro and International Economics (MInt). MInt is a section within ASE and covers its teaching and research in macroeconomics, broadly defined, so including environmental macro, budgetary policy, international trade and finance, macro-finance, monetary economics, pension economics, and so on. The MInt research group occupies a prominent position in Europe. The group is very involved in the Tinbergen Institute. For details on MInt’s research, please visit the MInt website.
Candidates are expected to contribute to research and teaching. Research is expected to 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). Teaching will be at both the undergraduate (BSc) and the graduate (MSc) level and will range from first-year tutorials to supervising MSc theses and possibly teaching PhD courses. Almost all teaching is conducted in English, also at the undergraduate level; non-Dutch speakers are free to teach in English.
Only candidates with a strong background in environmental macroeconomics, broadly defined, will be considered. This includes research on macroeconomic aspects of environmental concerns such as climate change and pollution, natural resources, environmental taxation and trade policy, and so on. Note that ASE also has a vacancy in environmental micro, which creates potential for collaboration.
Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics.
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.
