Job description

The Department of Quantitative Economics (QE) of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) is looking for an Assistant Professor (on a tenure track position) in Econometrics, with special interest in theoretical econometrics, statistics as well as their applications to financial and economic data.

The teaching tasks of the QE Department consists of both courses for the bachelor and master programs in Economics and Business, and courses for the Bachelor and Master programs in Econometrics and Operations Research. As to the latter programs, teaching covers the large spectrum of mathematics, statistics, operations research, econometrics, mathematical economics, and actuarial science. Teaching ranges from teaching in small groups (UM’s Problem Based Learning) to lecturing in large scale introductory statistics courses for economists, international business and University College. The applicant will also be asked to supervise bachelor and master theses. QE staff members have a 50% teaching duty.

The applicant will contribute to research in econometrics and statistics and is expected to publish in international top journals in one or more of the fields of interest to the QE department. The candidate is expected, given his research output, to become a fellow of the SBE research school (GSBE).
