The University of Milan seeks expressions of interest for post-doctoral positions

The Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods (DEMM) seeks expressions of interest for post-doctoral positions (2+2 years), expected to be formally open by the end of 2018, from candidates interested in working with us in the broad areas of Economics, Management and Statistics.

The University of Milan is a major research and teaching institution located in one of Europe’s most thriving cities. It is ranked in the top 200 for Economics in the Shanghai Ranking of World Universities. According to RepEc, the Department of Economics, Management, and Quantitative Methods – DEMM is one of the top five departments of economics in Italy and in the top four percent in Europe. The recent Italian research evaluation exercise (VQR 2011-2014) placed DEMM among the top 10 departments in the area of economics, management and statistics in Italy.

DEMM has also been the recipient of a generous competitive funding in the recent “Bando Dipartimenti di Eccellenza” grant, awarded by the Italian ministry of education (MIUR) and aimed at creating the Centre of Excellence in Economics and Data Science (CEEDS).

Particular attention will be given to candidates with an promising research record and showing the potential to cooperate with the current members of the department in pursuing DEMM’s strategy.

Interested candidates are invited to fill the following form

There is no formal deadline for the expression of interest but an early assessment is expected to start as soon as the application is received. Also, members of DEMM from the different areas are expected to conduct (non mandatory) informal interviews with potentially interested candidates at different conferences in the broad areas of economics, management and statistics. Successful applicants will be contacted to work on the application for post-doc (2+2 years) position.

Gross salary: €30,000-40,000 according to experience (post-doc) per annum.

Tax exemption: post-doctoral contracts in Italy are tax-free and only mandatory pension and health care contributions are due. This would result in the following net salary (approx.): €21,000-28,000 per annum.
