Job description

The Amsterdam School of Economics (ASE) of the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) currently has a position for a Postdoctoral researcher in Microeconomics. 

The postdoctoral vacancy is within the Microeconomics section, specifically within the research program on Experimental & Political Economics (CREED). Together with the two other research programs on Human Capital, and Markets & Organizations, the Microeconomics section is responsible for teaching most microeconomics related courses at the BSc and MSc level.

As postdoctoral researcher you are expected to contribute 80% of your time to research and tasks associated with project management, and 20% of your time to 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.

The position is funded by a NWO grant on 'Selective Attention and Economic Decisions', as outlined in the project proposal. All candidates with a strong background in Experimental Microeconomics and/or Economic Psychology will be considered. If you have an interest in the role of selective attention and motivated cognition surrounding ethical dilemmas in economic decision making, you are especially encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to contribute to the topic of the research project, but is encouraged to develop additional lines of research. Research should be aimed at international top journals.
