The Department of Economics at the University of Southern Denmark is looking for excellent and highly motivated researchers to submit joint projects under the Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships action. If successful, the project will lead to a position at our university for two years as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. We have been very successful in obtaining grants in recent years.
Accepted fellows will be working at Econometrics and Data Science research group at the Department of Economics. The group focuses on producing high quality research and teaching in Econometrics, Statistics, Causal Inference, Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics. Our research platform has done pioneering work on the use of machine learning in economics. For example, we are at the research frontier in terms of the application of image recognition algorithms to transcribe historical documents. While data science methods are great for solving prediction problems, it is often necessary to uncover causal relationships in order to give empirically-based policy recommendations. Our research group develops new methods and applies state-of-the-art causal inference in the fields of Health and Labour Economics to answer important questions.
Eligibility of the candidate
Candidates can be of any nationality, must hold a PhD degree (achieved within at most the last 8 years), and must not have worked or lived in Denmark for the previous 36 months at the time of application. Required working language: English.
The successful candidate(s) will have a strong international profile, a strong record of research publications, and have demonstrated exceptional potential to excel in scientific research.
