Full Text of JOE Listing:

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR), a multidisciplinary research centre established across five Australian universities.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work with Senior Research Fellow George Kudrna at the University of New South Wales, Sydney on projects in the area of life-cycle overlapping-generations (OLG) modelling, with applications to tax and retirement income policy under population ageing.

Currently, CEPAR is engaged in research that emphasizes the extension of OLG modelling to emerging Asia (with large informal labour). This research is funded under the ARC Linkage Project, 'Policy modelling for ageing in emerging economies: Indonesia and beyond', which involves the World Bank as a collaborating organisation. Hence, there would be opportunities for the fellow to engage with policy makers in emerging Asia.

The Fellow will also be responsible for producing high quality research (individually and collaboratively) to be published in major international journals, and carrying out activities to maintain and develop his/her scholarly research as well as to enhance the profile of the Centre.

The position is full-time fixed term for two years, subject to the completion of a satisfactory probation period. Opportunities may exist to undertake some teaching in the School.

UNSW aspires to be the exemplar Australian university and employer of choice for people from diverse backgrounds. UNSW aims to ensure equality in recruitment, development, retention and promotion of staff, and that no-one is disadvantaged on the basis of their gender, cultural background, disability, sexual orientation or identity. We encourage everyone who meets the selection criteria to apply.

Postdoctoral fellowship applicants must have completed (or be near completion of) a PhD in economics, econometrics or related discipline; a proven ability to produce quality research (including thesis papers and any additional publications); high level skills in stochastic analysis, theory and modelling; excellent computing and communications skills; and the ability to work both independently and as a member of a research team.

Application Process: All applications should be submitted online at Applications must include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, at least one research paper, and three letters of reference.
