The Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) of the Université catholique de Louvain is offering postdoctoral fellowships, to start on September 1, 2016, in the following areas:
  • Economics and Game Theory, in particular: Industrial organization, Public economics, Political economy, Environmental economics, Welfare economics and social choice theory, General equilibrium, and Game theory;
  • Econometrics, in particular: Financial econometrics, Time Series econometrics, Complex data analysis and stochastic models, and Bayesian methods;

  • Human and Economic Geography, in particular: Location-allocation models, Spatial data quantitative analyses, Transport geography in a sustainable mobility context, and Models in spatial analysis.

We are interested in promising young candidates who will have obtained their Ph.D. degree before starting the fellowship, as well as in more mature candidates with at most 6 years of post-doctoral research experience and a publications record. Candidates not holding a PhD degree at the time of the application must attach a letter from their advisor stating that the PhD degree is expected to be awarded by July 2016. Researchers must be in “mobility condition”, 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 starting the fellowship.
The position is for between 12 and 24 months. It should normally start on September 1, 2016, and no later than November 30, 2016. 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.
