The ESEI Center for Market Design at the University of Zurich is inviting applications for two Post-Doctoral Researcher positions.

The research of the ESEI Center focuses on the design of improved social, political, and economic institutions using theory and experiments. The research covers a wide range of topics including the analysis and design of auctions and markets, matching and voting institutions, communication in games, social learning and networks. See our website for an overview of publications, working papers, conferences, and current members of the ESEI center.

The Center plans to fill:

2. One Postdoc position that combines the development and support of JAVA based auction/market software with (experimental) research in this area

Candidates for position 1 should have completed their PhD in economics, and have a strong background in either theoretical or experimental research with a focus on mechanism design, auctions, networks, or political institutions.

Candidates for position 2 should in addition be proficient in JAVA. The position entails 50% programming time and 50% research, with some flexibility depending on the candidate's interests and skills.

The start date and terms of the positions are negotiable. Both positions are for two years with a possible extension to a third year. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled.

The ESEI Center offers an exciting work environment and excellent research facilities, including a well-equipped laboratory for conducting experiments.
