- Nieuwe Prinsengracht, Amsterdam, Noord-Holland
- Tijdelijk contract / Tijdelijke opdracht
- Uren per week:
- 38 - 38 uur
- € 4018 - € 5656 per maand
The two positions are 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.
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).
Given the current composition of the microeconomics section, especially candidates with a strong background in environmental economics, organizational economics, or public economics are encouraged to apply.
Candidates should have or be close to completing a PhD in Economics. They will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching.
For each position, 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 midterm 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 labor agreement regulating employment conditions at Dutch universities. A temporary substantial reduction in income tax (equal to 3 0% of taxable salary) may apply to non-Dutch candidates. The UvA offers a very attractive pension scheme. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
The intended start date is 1 September 2020.
