Full Text of JOE Listing:

London Business School is a leading international centre of business education and research.

An opportunity has arisen for a Research Fellow to work with Professor Paolo Surico on an ESRC funded project. The Research Fellow should have experience in quantitative macroeconomics and be interested in the macroeconomic implications of micro heterogeneity and distributional issues in equilibrium models and the long-run consequences of business cycle fluctuations in endogenous productivity models. The candidate should have in depth knowledge of both theory and state-of-the-art empirical methods. Knowledge of Matlab and Stata are essential. She/he should be willing to work with micro and aggregate data.

The successful candidate will have a PhD from a leading institution or be near completion.

The post will offer substantial opportunity to both participate in and contribute to the project and provide funding for conference attendance. Candidates should provide in their application a detailed outline of how their experience and training in macroeconomics and econometrics would enable them to contribute to the research project and details of their own research, if relevant. The ideal starting date is September 2024 with some flexibility.

The post will be offered on a fixed-term full time contract for a period of 1 year (in the first instance), renewable upon success for another year. Salary will be in the range of £50,000 including London weighting, depending upon relevant qualifications and experience.

Please submit your application via JOE below.

Interviews will take place, in person or online, between 6-8 March 2024.
