The Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) has a Tenure track Assistant professorships in Econometrics and Data Science.

Job description

Candidates are expected to equally contribute to research and teaching. 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 PhD courses. 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. Research is expected to be aimed at international top journals, in line with the research fellow criteria of the Tinbergen Institute.


The vacancy concerns two positions in the section Quantitative Economics. All candidates with a strong background in econometrics or statistics will be taken into consideration. The section wishes to expand its research and teaching in the areas of machine learning, data science and micro-econometrics, so candidates with an expertise in these areas are specifically encouraged to apply. Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics, Econometrics, Statistics, Data Science, Machine Learning or a related field.

Candidates will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching. Visibility at relevant international academic conferences and experience in teaching or thesis supervision are highly appreciated.


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.
