We expect the candidate (f/m/x) to possess an excellent research profile in labor economics and the willingness to further develop the labor economics group at IWH.

The candidate demonstrates academic excellence by means of top publications in international peer-reviewed journals and has developed and taught advanced economic graduate courses. Successful (co-)supervision of PhD students and junior faculty as well as the acquisition of competitive third-party funding are strong advantages. An existing network of international research collaborations is expected. Knowledge of the German language is not a requirement.
