It focuses on research in structural change and productivity, finance, and macroeconomics. The Assistant Professor will join the Financial Markets department at the IWH.
Besides the formal requirements listed below the successful candidate has the potential for successful publications in excellent international journals, and ideally an existing network of international research collaborations. It is expected that the candidate will teach in the Faculty’s Bachelor and Master degree programmes. While knowledge of German is desirable, it is not a requirement for the position.
