The Department of Business and Economics is looking for excellent and highly motivated researchers to submit joint projects under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships action. If successful, the project will lead to a position at our university for two years as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow.

Accepted fellows will be working at the Department of Business and Economics and the Historical Economics and Development Group (HEDG), which focuses on growth, development and economic history. Since its establishment in 2011, HEDG has been one of the fastest growing groups within growth, development and economic history and is arguably one of the leading groups in Europe. The work carried out by the group can be described as quantitative, empirical work. The research of the group often focuses on evaluating the effect of an intervention on economic development, for example the impact of health improvements on long-term growth and assessing the impact of agricultural productivity on development.

The successful candidate(s) will have a strong international profile, a strong record of research publications, and have demonstrated exceptional potential to excel in scientific research. We offer a uniquely ambitious research environment, and we expect successful applicants to actively engage in the development of the research unit. 

If interested in pursuing this opportunity, please forward your CV and a short, motivated application. Applicants should briefly address how they and their research relates and contribute to the Historical Economics and Development Group. The selected candidates will be invited for further talks, an application workshop and, of course, the joint fellowship application.

Expressions of interest must be forwarded before March 1, 2018 to rre@sam.sdu.dk. Selected candidates are expected to participate in a Marie Curie IF masterclass hosted by consultants from Yellow Research.

The MSC Individual Fellowship deadline is on September 12, 2018.

For further information, please contact:

Prof. and Head of Group, Peter Sandholt Jensen, psj@sam.sdu.dk  or Prof. Paul Sharp, pauls@sam.sdu.dk.
