ECASE currently has vacancies for a PhD-position and a 4 year postdoc position:
- PhD-position: ECASE has a vacancy for a PhD-student to do research on “Labour markets in professional sports”. The focus of the proposed PhD research is to study questions in labour economics through sports data. The research will follow-up on research done by both supervisors Jan van Ours and Thomas Peeters. In recent years, Jan van Ours has published a string of papers studying sports data. He has, for example, investigated the link between manager dismissals and team performance, the matching of runners and teams based on past performance and the relationship between age and productivity in a sample of non-professional runners. Thomas Peeters has been involved in studying the prevalence of concussion among high-school American football players, the hiring behaviour of English football clubs and the relevance of management for firms in baseball. The PhD-student will be affiliated to Tinbergen Institute or ERIM (provide links). The starting date is 1 September 2018. Depending on the curriculum of the students the position will be for 3 or 4 years.
- Post-doc position: ECASE has a vacancy for a postdoctoral research fellow. The researcher will contribute to the activities of ECASE and will be appointed at the Department of Applied Economics of Erasmus School of Economics. The position is research focused with a reduced teaching load. The appointment will be for a period of 4 years. The preferred starting date is September 1, 2018. Further information will be provided soon.
