Nebrija University (Madrid-Spain) is a young institution (18 years) with two campuses, one right in the heart of downtown and one in a natural park on the outskirts of Madrid. With some 7,500 students –many of them international- and a 15/1 student-professor ratio, Nebrija is noted for giving students individual attention and easing their access to the labour market. In 2018 the university was awarded 5 stars (the maximum score) in teaching, internationalization and distance learning by the prestigious International QS Ranking.
The Department of Business Administration at Nebrija University (Madrid) offers a Full-time position starting on September 1, 2019, at the earliest. This position is focused on research and is associated with a teaching load of no more than 6 hours per week. The candidate must have an active research agenda and a record of relevant international publications in the field of Firm Internationalization/ International Economics.
U. Nebrija and, more specifically, the Department of Bussiness Administration is committed with fostering an internationally oriented research environment and has currently two core research agendas.
- Microeconometrics. One of the department’s fields of specialization is the use of microeconometric techniques to analyze the determinants of well-being in modern societies. The primary goal of this line of research has been to answer relevant scientific questions related with social and labour market phenomena, including the role of comparison income, deprivation, economic insecurity, personality traits, social interactions and unemployment transitions in modern societies. These results have been published in international renowned journals, including the Socio-economic Review, Review of Income and Wealth, Economics and Human Biology, Journal of Economic Psychology and Social Indicators Research, among others.
- Firm internationalization. Based on applied research and firm level data, this area gravitates around fundamental questions related to sources of trade growth, international trade agreements, regional trade, international prices, demography of international firms and international promotion policies. This agenda has produced publications in leading scientific outlets, including the World Economy, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, Review of World Economics and SERIES, among others.
