CORE Postdoctoral Fellowship: Call for Applications
The Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) of the University of Louvain (Université Catholique de Louvain) is offering postdoctoral fellowships, to start on September 1, 2017, in the following areas:
CORE members are interested in experienced researchers holding a doctoral degree (PhD) or having at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience.
Researchers have to fulfill the "mobility" requirement, i.e., have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Belgium for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the start of the fellowship.
The position is offered for 12 to 24 months. It should normally start on September 1, 2017, and no later than November 30, 2017. Fellows are expected to publish their research results in the CORE Discussion Papers series, to present seminars at CORE and to interact with faculty and students in residence at CORE. A light contribution to doctoral level teaching might be requested.
The net monthly allowance varies according to the experience of the fellow (average in 2016 for PhD holders with 2 years of work experience was above € 2,300/month). Benefits include health insurance and the costs of the trip from your host institution to CORE. Note that the CORE Secretariat will help you find accommodation. Also, a research budget of € 2,000 per academic year is also provided to cover professional travels and expenses.
Applications follow a two-step procedure.
