  • Description

    The School of Economics and Business of the University of Navarra is seeking candidates for the Tenure Track (3+3) position of Assistant Professor (equivalent to "Ayudante Doctor") for the academic year 2020-2021. All fields of specialization will be considered, but we are particularly interested in researchers in the areas of Macro-finance, Political Economy, Management, Marketing, Decision Science, Experimental / Behavioral Economics and Data Analytics / Statistics. The primary selection criteria will be the potential of the candidate as researcher and teacher in the various programs that the School offers.

  • Contract

    The initial contract will be for a year, annually renewable during a total of six years. After three years, a first evaluation will be performed. If the evaluation is positive, then renewals will continue. During this period of six years, a final decision will be made about offering a formal, long-term contract (although any assistant professor may request that this decision be taken prior to the end of the full six-year term). Evaluations and decisions will be based on the research quality of the candidate and on his or her satisfactory performance in teaching tasks.

  • Teaching

    The normal teaching load is 120 hours/year, with the possibility to concentrate in one semester. Some administrative tasks also form part of the normal work load, although recently-hired professors are typically assigned lighter tasks.

    Classes are taught in Spanish and English. Professors whose native language is not Spanish are generally assigned to the English program. All Doctoral courses are exclusively taught in English. The University offers courses, via its Institute of Modern Languages, to help those candidates who wish to learn or improve their Spanish.

  • Salary

    The University of Navarra is a private university: the salaries are comparable to those of other Spanish and European universities, in countries such as France or Great Britain. 

  • Application process

    Interested candidates must send their applications electronically. Please include a cover letter, an up-to-date curriculum vitae, a publishable journal article as a research sample, and a short essay explaining what you know about the University of Navarra. Candidates must also provide three letters of recommendation, sent to us by persons who know the candidate and can give us information about his or her capacity and competence. The names and contact information of the people who write the letters (preferentially academics) should be included in the curriculum vitae. We have a rolling application process but a first screening will be done by November 15, 2019. Upon positive evaluation of the application package, selected candidates will be contacted for an interview. Some interviews will be held in the European Economic Association (EEA) job market (Rotterdam, December 18-19, 2019). After the interviews, selected candidates will be invited to visit the School and give a presentation about their current research.
