The salary range is between SEK 460,000 – 520,000 per year depending on qualifications.

Qualification requirements
Qualified to be employed as an Associate Senior Lecturer in econometrics, is a person who has been awarded a Ph.D. degree in economics or finance not more than five years before the application deadline. The positions include teaching in English and therefore requires a good command of the English language.

While international applications are encouraged teaching at the introductory level is in Swedish why language skills in Swedish are merit. Ability to develop and implement high-quality research and good and broad teaching skills are the basis for the assessment of the position.

The School of Economics and Management strives for a balance between research and teaching in all positions. Therefore, in the selection process equal weight will be given to scientific and pedagogical accomplishment.

In the overall evaluation of scientific skills, particular weight will be given to the applicant’s publications or potential to publish in highly ranked journals with the international peer-review system. The candidate should have either at least one published or forthcoming paper oriented towards econometrics in a journal at the A-level or at least 2 publications at B*-level (for classification of journals see the list below).

The department will favor candidates who can document successful theoretical research within the field of panel data econometrics.

A Ph.D. degree or experience of two years or more at the post-doctoral level from outside of the School of Economics and Management is strong merit.
