W1 Junior Professorship in Methodology of Economics, GERMANY

The Philosophy & Economics Programme invites applications for a full-time position of JUNIOR PROFESSOR (W1) FOR THE METHODOLOGY OF ECONOMICS.

The position is offered for an initial period of three years and will be extended by a further 
three years following a positive evaluation.

The successful candidate will have completed a PhD and will have an aptitude for international 
level research and high quality teaching and supervision. The academic responsibilities include 
teaching (seven hours per week per semester) in our highly successful Philosophy & Economics BA and
MA programmes and undertaking innovative research. The successful candidate is expected to play an
instrumental role in the development of a doctoral programme and will be especially engaged in

knowledge of German will be gained within two-years.
