Postdoctoral Fellow in International Studies

The Vienna School of International Studies (Diplomatische Akademie Wien) is proposing the appointment of a Postdoctoral Fellow in International Studies for two years, from 25 September 2023. Geared towards promoting the professional development of the appointee, he/she will focus on his/her own research, do a comparably limited amount of graduate teaching, and help with the supervision of master thesis.

The successful candidate must hold – or have evidence of the imminent completion of – a doctorate in Economics. We seek candidates working in all areas of empirical macroeconomics, including but not limited to monetary policy and central banking, international economics and international finance, growth econometrics and developing economics as well as environmental economics. Excellent knowledge of econometrics, strong coding skills (preferably in the software R) as well as previous teaching experience are required. Previously taught courses in introductions to quantitative methods are an asset.

The Vienna School of International Studies is a professional school, specialized in the interdisciplinary training of graduate students, and an associate member of APSIA. The presence of international organizations in Vienna makes for excellent research opportunities, in particular for research dealing with international economics, governance and multilateralism broadly defined.
