2018 Economics Job Market Scramble for New PhDs
With the PhD recruitment season coming to an end, there are still institutions and candidates who have not yet found a suitable offer. As a nice addition to your job hunt on INOMICS you should consider participating in the Economics Job Market “Scramble”, especially if your career goals lead you to North America.
As the primary recruitment phase closes in February and March, it is difficult for both employers and candidates to determine available positions on either side of the job market. In order to improve job market transparency and to help identify available candidates, the American Economic Association (AEA) sponsors a “scramble” toward the end of the job market season. The main goal of the Economics Job Market "Scramble" for new PhDs is to increase the chances of matching prospective employers and job candidates who remain unmatched during the recruitment season. The job “Scramble” consists of a website in which candidates and employers can advertise their availability for new offers.

Jobs for Foreigners in Brazil: A New Destination for Skilled Migration?
Since its foundation by Portuguese colonists, Brazil, the largest country in Latin America, has experienced an important immigrant flow. Over time, the Brazilian government has influenced this flow by implementing policies that support the needs of the economy. If during the first half of the 20th century governmental policies targeted low-skilled immigrants for work in the agricultural sector, in the last quarter of the century the government aimed to attract highly skilled immigrants to the country.
