Full Text of JOE Listing:
The University of Bremen, a mid-sized university with approximately 250 professorships and 19,000 students in the North-West of Germany, offers a broad range of disciplines and competes internationally in top-level research. With an ambitious institutional strategy the university was one of eleven universities in Germany that was successful in the Excellence Initiative and is now receiving additional funding to strengthen its international competitiveness.

The Faculty of Business Studies and Economics is offering within the scope of the Excellence Initiative, conditional to the release of budgetary funds, positions for up to two professorships in economics (open rank). Remuneration is based on the professorial pay scales: W1 for assistant professors stands at 45.000 Euros p.a., W2 for associate at a minimum of 60.000 Euros and W3 for full professors at a minimum of 70.000 Euros. The initial offer will be for an untenured post, but the positions have a negotiable tenure-track option.

The Department of Economics is open to any field of research but emphasizes evolutionary/institutional/complexity approaches. Candidates are expected to contribute to a broadly understood evolutionary economics research program. Successful candidates must demonstrate the ability to apply methods such as dynamic/evolutionary modeling, econometrics, game theory, agent-based modeling, or computer simulation.

Responsibilities include teaching at the BA/BSc and MA/MSc/PhD levels, and will range between 4 and 8 hours per week, depending on the rank. Teaching can be conducted in English. Applicants are expected to cooperate with other areas within and outside the University of Bremen.

For further inquiries please contact Dean Professor Jochen Zimmermann, or Professor Wolfram Elsner

Interviews will be conducted at the January 2013 ASSA meeting in San Diego.
