Post Doc Position(s) at Center for Economic Behavior and Inequality (CEBI) and the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen (UCPH)

CEBI and the Department of Economics invites for applications for 1-2 Post Doc Positions. The positions will have a duration of 1-3 years. Employment is expected to begin as soon as possible. 
CEBI is a new center of excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. CEBI aims to address the role of behavior in generating inequality and the underlying sources of such behavioral inequality. The focus is on empirical research and on exploiting the globally unique Danish data research infrastructure to combine population administrative registers on individuals’ choices and outcomes with information about their behavioral characteristics obtained from large-scale controlled experiments and large-scale surveys. A variety of research approaches will be applied, including reduced form analysis to measure the behavioural effects of policy interventions, structural modelling of economic behaviour, and experiments to identify various aspects of economic behaviour. CEBI is looking for excellent candidates who have strong experience with these research approaches and are interested in doing empirical research within the Center’s research areas. 
Employment as Post Doc at the Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen, requires a PhD degree in economics.
