Full Text of JOE Listing:

As part of the project "Origins and Transmission of Financial Market Risks" Bocconi University invites applications for a 2-year post-doc position starting in September 2020.
The project seeks to understand the nature of financial decision-making by individuals and institutions and how the latter contributes to market instability. The project consists of two main research strands. The first is more behavioral and seeks to shed light on financial decisions. The second strand is sinstitutions and market based: it purports to map individual decisions into distortions in asset prices, the allocation of credit, and the real economy.

The ideal profile for the position is that of an empirical researcher capable of dealing with both field and experimental data. An empirical financial economist with knowledge of behavioral finance, or a versatile empirical economist with knowledge of finance would constitute a good fit. More specifically, the required skillset comprises:
- Data collection and organization (which includes field, experimental and survey data)
- Knowledge of standard econometric techniques (cross sectional and time series) and of the statistical software needed to implement them.
