Xiamen University, founded in 1921 by Mr. Tan Kah-Kee, a well-known Chinese expatriate, is located in the resort-like island of Xiamen in Southeast China. Under the leadership of Professor Wang Yanan, a former Xiamen University President and the Chinese translator of Karl Marx’s Das Kapital, the School of Economics at Xiamen University has been one of the top programs in China since 1950s. In 2005, to further develop and promote modern economics, Xiamen University established an internationalized research institute - the Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics (WISE). Gregory and Paula Chow Center for Economic Research was founded with the aim to build a world-renowned research center on modern economics and the Chinese economy. The main missions of WISE and the School of Economics are high-quality graduate training, frontier research, and intensive international academic exchange and cooperation. Having successfully recruited about 80 faculty members from abroad in the past few years, WISE and the School of Economics still have several faculty positions available in all areas of economics, finance and statistics at all ranks.

Junior candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. degree by August 2018 and show evidence of promising research ability. Senior candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and a demonstrably strong research record. Competitive salary, research grant and housing subsidy are provided, with a regular teaching load of 2.5 courses per year. Additional course(s) may be arranged with commensurate pay.
