SAIS Europe is currently seeking to fill up to two resident faculty positions in finance and development economics, both of which are endowed professorships. A strong background in empirical research, including data science, and econometrics is an advantage for both positions. The Vera and Stefano Zamagni Professorship in development economics will be tenure-track at the assistant or associate professor rank. Candidates will be expected to have innovative, eclectic research agendas related to the broad field of development economics, including the implications of climate change for developing economies, sustainability, and finance and development policy. The James Anderson Professorship in International Economics and Finance will have an open rank and may be either tenure-track/tenured or a term appointment. Candidates will have a focus in the general areas of finance and financial markets, including finance and innovation, Fintech, behavioral finance, corporate finance, or financial intermediation. Candidates who have substantial practical experience in the above areas could be considered outside the tenure track with a term appointment.
For both positions, preference will be given to candidates who combine outstanding research with proven or potential excellence in teaching and experience in the field. A Ph.D. in economics or finance with a strong track record of publications is expected for candidates at the Associate or Full Professor level. For appointments at the Assistant Professor level on the tenure track, candidates are expected to finalize their Ph.D. in economics or finance before July 2022. Both positions will be based at the Bologna campus.
Applications will only be accepted through Interfolio.
A letter of application, a curriculum vitae, samples of research, and at least three letters of recommendation (for junior appointments) or the names and contact points of three references (for senior appointments) should be included.
Applications will be reviewed immediately and will be accepted until the position is filled. For full consideration, candidates should submit their applications before 1 November, 2021.
