The Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) provides academic courses for more than 5,000 students in Economics and Business and a variety of post-doctoral courses. The Faculty also conducts research programmes in many specialist areas and employs about five hundred faculty members.

Research is expected to be aimed at international top journals, in line with the research fellow criteria of the Tinbergen Institute.


Highly-motivated candidates with outstanding research and teaching qualities from all major areas in economics are welcome to apply. Candidates will be evaluated on their potential for and/or record of excellence in research and teaching.
