Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Department of Economics at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, Denmark, invites applications for a two-year position as Postdoc. The preferred starting date is 1 September 2023.

The Department of Economics is an international department with a strong tradition for excellence in research and teaching within the various areas of economics. The research, teaching, and dissemination activities at the department are organized within four groups: Econometrics and Data Science; Economic History; Macroeconomics; and Microeconomics. An elaborated description of the department and the groups can be found here.

The department is responsible for the undergraduate as well as the graduate programmes in Economics and Mathematics-Economics.

It is the aim of the department to conduct research of the highest international standard documented through 1) publications in internationally distinguished journals, 2) presentations at international conferences, 3) external funding from competitive programs and 4) dissemination with high visibility and broad societal impact.

The department emphasizes high-quality research-based teaching using the most relevant teaching methods to enhance students' learning.

The Postdoc will become part of the group Econometrics and Data Science and will also be affiliated with The Interdisciplinary Center on Population Dynamics (CPop). CPop is a cross-faculty collaboration with researchers drawn from demography, public health, biology, mathematics, economics, political science, and humanities and conducts innovative research on the causes and consequences of survival, longevity, and ageing.

The candidate will join an international team of researchers and will be involved in a research project on healthcare utilization and health behavior in Denmark. Knowledge and/or research interest in the field of health economics or other related fields will be an advantage. This is an excellent opportunity for recent PhD graduates to apply causal inference techniques to large administrative health data, and benefit from a well-funded interdisciplinary research environment.
