lecturer (tenure track) Environmental Economics
The research group Environmental Economics focuses on research towards sustainable behavior and technologies. Environmental issues are analyzed by extending neoclassical economic tools. The research group employs economic as well as interdisciplinary research methods for the integrated valuation of ecosystem services and for sustainability analysis of clean technologies.
The complexity of environmental issues requires multidisciplinarity and the research group is therefore part of the Centre for Environmental Sciences (CMK), where it works with researchers from biology, ecology, biomedicine, chemistry and law. CMK and the research group have extensive national and international collaborations.
Teaching responsibility can include courses in the field of microeconomics, environmental economics and the economics of technology within the Bachelor's and Master's programs of the faculty of Business Economics. The candidate also contributes to the development of the pedagogical framework.
The successful applicant will help strengthen the existing research portfolio of the Environmental Economics research group. She/he will lead economic, as well as interdisciplinary research projects within the research group and CMK, in collaboration with scientific partners inside and outside Hasselt University. Important objectives are the realization of publications in internationally recognized academic journals, the extension of the existing research network and the supervision of doctoral students.
We will offer an appointment as a lecturer (assistant professor) in the tenure track system during 5 years. This will lead to an immediate permanent contract as a senior lecturer (associate professor), if the Board of Directors favorably assesses the party involved, based on a previously set of public grading criteria.
Preselection based on CV. Interview with and test lesson/presentation by the selected candidates.
