Recruitment : Assitant Professor (tenure-track) position


The Department of Economics at the University of Cergy-Pontoise is offering an Assistant Professor position, which is scheduled to start on September 1, 2019. It will last five years corresponding to a three-year contract renewable for two years after a mid-term evaluation. Following a successful tenure evaluation at the beginning of the 5th year, the Assistant Professor will be offered a permanent senior position.

The successful candidate should have demonstrated an ability to produce quality research in any field of economics and complete his or her PhD by the date of the appointment. Ability to teach in French is not required, but will be taken into consideration in the tenure evaluation. The university provides training for French as a foreign language.

The position benefits from a junior research chair funded by the Paris Seine Initiative (http://theparisseineinitiative.org/fr/) covering the first five years of employment. It entails a substantial teaching reduction over the five year period so the teaching load is approximately one and a half one semester course. The chair also provides substantial research funding.
