WANG YANAN INSTITUTE FOR STUDIES IN ECONOMICS (WISE) and SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS, XIAMEN UNIVERSITY, CHINA
Any field in economics, finance and statistics (preferred areas but not limited to are experimental economics, econometrics, macroeconomics, finance, and statistics)
Xiamen University, founded in 1921 by Mr. Tan Kah-Kee, a well-known Chinese expatriate, is located in the resort-like island of Xiamen in Southeast China. Thanks to a remarkable Chinese economist Professor Wang Yanan, a former University President and the Chinese translator of Karl Marx’s Das Kapital, School of Economics at Xiamen University has been among the top programs in China. To further develop and promote modern economics, Xiamen University established a research-oriented and internationalized institute -- Wang Yanan Institute for Studies in Economics (WISE) in 2005. The main missions of WISE and School of Economics are high-quality graduate training, frontier research, and intensive international academic exchanges and cooperation. Having successfully recruited about 30 faculty members from abroad in the past few years, WISE and School of Economics still have several faculty positions available in all areas of economics, finance and statistics at all ranks. Junior candidates are expected to have a PhD by August 2012 and have evidence of promising research ability. Senior candidates must have a Ph.D degree and a demonstrably strong research record. Competitive salary, research grant and housing subsidy are provided, with a regular teaching load of three courses per year. Additional graduate course(s) may be arranged with commensurate pay. All faculty members, regardless of their citizenship, enjoy a housing subsidy for the first six years, and Chinese citizens with residency in Xiamen have the option to purchase an apartment substantially subsidized by the Xiamen city government and Xiamen University. Detailed information is available at the web site http://www.wise.xmu.edu.cn/english. We will interview selected candidates in Chicago, IL during the 2012 ASSA meeting. Interested applicants should send a cover letter with their curriculum vitae, samples of their research work, and three reference letters (including any teaching evaluations) before November 30, 2011. Please indicate whether you are applying for positions in WISE, or School of Economics, or both.
