For your research duties, you will work on a PhD project under the supervision of Dr J. Schmitz and Prof. S. Zeisberger.

Your teaching responsibilities include giving tutorials/lectures in the Bachelor's degree programmes offered by the Department of Economics and Business Economics, with a focus on Business Economics in general, and finance in particular as well as supervising Bachelor's theses. Whilst holding this position, you will be given the opportunity to obtain your university teaching qualification.
