Current status of application procedure

  • Appointment offer to the first-placed candidate (05.02.2021)
The Center for Mathematical Economics (Institut für Mathematische Wirtschaftsforschung, IMW) and the Faculty of Business Administration and Economics at Bielefeld University are seeking to fill the following position as soon as possible:

Junior Professorship (W1) in Mathematical Economics

We are looking for outstanding, internationally visible candidates in research and teaching who are qualified by excellent publications in one of the research areas of the Center for Mathematical Economics. Interdisciplinary research and teaching across faculties traditionally plays an important role at the Center for Mathematical Economics. We expect participation in the existing and planned joint third-party funded projects of the Center, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, and other faculties, especially in the interdisciplinary context. The connection to the Collaborative Research Center 1283 `` Taming Uncertainty and Profiting from Randomness ... ’’ plays an important role for this professorship. We are looking for young researchers who can make a significant contribution to the economic sub-projects of the Collaborative Research Center; potential topics include dynamic game theory (differential games, mean-field games) as well as the analysis of financial markets (equilibrium models in continuous time), industrial dynamics (dynamic I.O.) or complex decisions under uncertainty (e.g. recursive dynamic utility).

Teaching is to be provided in the research-oriented Master and Bachelor programs of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, especially in Mathematical Economics.

The prerequisites for the position are a university degree, pedagogical aptitude and the special ability for scientific work, which is usually demonstrated by the outstanding quality of a doctorate.

The position is initially for three years, and can be extended to six years after a positive evaluation.

Applications from suitably qualified handicapped and severely handicapped persons are explicitly encouraged.
