Currently, 40 researchers with doctoral degrees in economics are working at IFN, of which 8 are Professors and 14 Associate Professors. In addition, 4 research assistants and 7 Ph.D. students are affiliated with the institute.
The Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN) seeks candidates for one tenure-track academic research position in economics starting in 2022. We are flexible about the start date. We are looking for candidates with a keen interest in issues of relevance to the business sector and policy, and a special focus on the firm or its workers as the central unit of analysis. We welcome applications from junior as well as senior researchers. Fluency in Swedish is a strong merit. Candidates must have a Ph.D. by the start of employment. The application deadline is November 10, 2021. We offer an excellent international research environment with high potential for individual development, a full-time research position with no required teaching, access to research assistance, extensive employer-employee data sets, and a generous travel budget.
Applications should be submitted via econjobmarket.org and should include a cover letter describing how your research plans fit with the stated objectives of IFN, a curriculum vitae, examples of scientific work such as your job market paper, and a research statement describing the research topics/papers you would like to pursue if hired by IFN. We ask junior applicants for at least two letters of recommendation. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
