Assistant Professor of Economics. Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

The Department of Economics at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid invites applications to fill up to two tenure track positions at the assistant professor level beginning in September 2020. Candidates should have completed a doctorate by this date. The Department seeks applicants with the capability to publish in leading journals and provide high-quality teaching. Applications from all areas of economics are welcome.

Deadline and Selection Process

Applications must be received by November 20, 2019. Interviews will be conducted both at the ASSA Meetings in San Diego (USA) and at the European job market in Rotterdam (Netherlands). After the interviews, the Department will invite some candidates for campus visits and seminars.


The standard teaching load is 5 sections per year (about 100 teaching hours, possibly repeating some courses in different sections and/or providing tutorial support to some theory groups). Teaching reductions can be assigned to faculty who obtain research fellowships (such as Ramon y CajalJuan de la Cierva).

Undergraduate classes follow a Semester Schedule. Each section consists of 90 minutes of class per week for a total of 14 weeks. The first semester begins on early September and ends on mid December, with exams taking place in January. The second semester begins on late January and ends on early May, with exams taking place immediately thereafter.


Language is not a relevant criterion for hiring decisions. The graduate programs, all research activities, and most communications within the department are conducted in English. Teaching duties, including undergraduate teaching, can be completed in English. The University offers Spanish courses to foreign students and professors, and the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas offers good quality classes at very cheap rates.


All applications should be submitted on the electronic platform (see the link below). Application materials should include a curriculum vitae, a sample of recent research and three letters of recommendation. The application procedure requires applicants to name three professors in our department that they feel closest to in terms of research interests.
