Full Text of JOE Listing:
The Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse aims to be the home of academic freedom and experimentation, where top-flight researchers are able to explore new territory in a multi-disciplinary direction and interact with visitors in a stimulating environment.

In 2014, in addition to our open postdoctoral recruitment, we shall also be recruiting according to one or more multidisciplinary themes. These reflect areas in which there are existing research strengths at IAST, and in which we expect to do significant further work in the future. Applications are welcome from candidates having or expecting to obtain a Ph.D. in any discipline. So far the following themes have been selected for 2014:

- Human motivation: ultimate and proximate causes
- The Legacy of History: Institutions, Demographics, and Long-Run Development
- Cooperation and conflict in families

We welcome contributions within these themes from researchers within a large range of disciplines: anthropology, biology, history, law, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from outside these disciplines will be given full consideration. Applications from economists are also encouraged, but successful applicants will have demonstrated an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other non-economics disciplines of the IAST.
