Macroeconomists required again

GRAPE is looking for candidates interested in joining the team. We intend to hire two part-time assistants (the work load for each is about 20 hours a week) for projects on pension systems and demographics.

We welcome applications from candidates who have interest in applied and quantitative economics. In particular, we are seeking candidates willing to learn programming in Fortran/Matlab as well as solving general equilibrium models (fun stuff!)

Knowledge of English is a must. Prior experience with Matlab/Fortran/Mathematica constitute an advantage, but are not mandatory.

The tasks of the assistant will include coding, analysis and review of literature as well as drafting components of scientific articles and non-technical posts for GRAPE blog. We can offer a scholarship (“stypendium"). The compensation amounts gross to 2000 PLN for one part-time position per month. The expected contract duration will be between 3 up to 4 years, but it may also be extended, subject to successful cooperation and obtaining funding for new projects. These particular projects are financed by the National Science Center.
