(Pay Scale 13 TV-L, 100%)
The Department of Microeconomics at the School of Business Administration and Economics at the University of Osnabrück (www.mikro.uni-osnabrueck.de) is seeking to appoint a PhD candidate/scientific assistant for a duration of three years commencing 1st October 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.
The successful candidate will join a group of experimental economists conducting high quality research in individual decision-making under risk and strategic decision-making. Duties will include the development of a programme of research to lead to the award of a doctorate. There are laboratory facilities and funds to support research. Research supervision will be provided. More information about the group can be found at www.wiwi.uni-osnabrueck.de/research/laer.html.
The successful candidate will also have teaching responsibilities of four hours per week, responsibility for managing a team of tutors, and supporting the general research, teaching and administrative activities of the department.
- Candidates should hold, or be close to completing, a good Master’s degree, Diplom or equivalent qualification in economics or a closely related behavioural and experimental social science.
- The Microeconomics subject group is multi-national and the day-to-day language of the department is English. All teaching is conducted in English. A high degree of competence in both written and spoken English and German is therefore a requirement of the position.
The ability to demonstrate previous experience of experimental and behavioural economics, for example through courses studied and Bachelor’s and/or Master’s theses will be considered an advantage. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate motivation for curiosity-driven research, have initiative and a track record of academic achievement.
The University of Osnabrück is a family-friendly university and is committed to helping working/studying parents balance their family and working lives.
The University of Osnabrück seeks to guarantee equal opportunities and strives to correct any gender imbalance in its schools and departments.
