Jinhe Center for Economic Research(JCER)was founded in Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) by Yusen Kwoh (Chicago trained) and Chuntien Hu (Princeton trained) in 1997 to modernize XJTU’s economics curriculum, currently offers B.A, M.A. and PhD degrees in economics. So far, teaching/advising has been done by our 8 permanent faculties and about 30 visiting professors from Taiwan and US/Europe.

Mandated by XJTU to assemble 15-20 permanent/resident faculties from abroad within 3 years as a core full-time team to build an elite academic oriented economics program in XJTU. A sophisticated ancient capital away from hectic political and commercial centers of China, Xi'an is a perfect location setting to focus on academic inquiry and education as well as international exchanges.

Fields of interests include but not limited to: theoretical and applied micro, information/uncertainty, macro, money, economic history, finance (theoretical), math, IO, regulations, law & economics, labor, trade, Bayesian econometrics.

Milton Friedman: “Nothing’s more practical than good theories”. We look for people believing that advice is especially relevant for today's economics in China. Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with qualifications.

Center director Prof. Yusen Kwoh will interview selected candidates during the 2016 ASSA meeting or we will arrange online interview for both conveniences.
